Wood Mice in Haslemere Homes

by admin on October 20, 2015

Over the years our staff have been in a huge number of lofts and roof spaces in and around Haslemere, and it is fair to say that whether you live in Weyhill, Hammer, Shottermill, or Brook then the chances are that you are sharing your house with mice.

Almost every building we go into has signs of mouse infestation in it; the problem is that if you don’t know what you are looking for then you won’t see the signs, until it is too late.

Stored food getting contaminated by mouse urine and droppings; plastic water pipes being gnawed through and causing a leak; electrical circuits shorting out and lights no longer working; and even house fires are all the sort of thing that let you know you have mice living in your roof space. But of course by then it is too late.

The beauty of living in a town like Haslemere that is surrounded by stunning National Trust woodland is that we have ready access to amazing countryside, but this comes with a downside. The creatures that usually live in the woodland have ready access to us too. The Wood Mouse (Apopdemus Sylvanus) is one of the most common house invaders, and has evolved to hide from predators, including humans. They can climb brick walls as if they were horizontal to take up residence in the fabric of your house, and you won’t know it until it is too late.

The best case scenario is that you might hear some slight scratching noises coming from the ceiling. And if that is the case then you need to get us out immediately before mice do more damage. Mice in Haslemere are a big problem, and you should make sure they don’t damage your home.
