One of our customers in Northwest Washington DC reported signs that mice had moved into his shed. This was a newly purchased home and the customer wasn’t too crazy about sharing it with these unwelcome visitors.

Inspection

Clifford’s attention was drawn to a fake wooden door. Whole board wood had been used to replace the former used door, but the contractors were careless: they left the four corners unsealed, providing easy access for vermin.

Dirt and droppings in the area confirmed Clifford’s suspicions. Grass seed inside the shed provided a friendly environment for nesting. These mice had been there for a long time before their antics caught the customer’s attention.

Extermination

This was a two-stage extermination. First we removed the grass seeds on which the mice fed. We then used bait and tracking powder to exterminate them. After treatment, we returned to seal the entry points from inside and outside.

If you have any questions/comments, either leave me a comment below.
