Mice, Squirrel, Chipmunk & Rodent Removal
Rodents that most generally become pests in the Peterborough & Oshawa areas are mice, rats, squirrels and chipmunks.
Mice and rats are discovered when someone actually sees one running across the floor or finds their droppings. These types of rodents, besides being a nuisance are capable of contaminating foodstuffs and damaging valuable belongings.
Mice and rats breed quickly and can become a problem before they are noticed. A thorough investigation is always recommended. If there is one mouse or rat spotted chances are that there are more.

Squirrels and chipmunks are usually noticed when they have breached an attic. You will sometimes hear them running on the ceiling at dusk or dawn.
Squirrels have the ability to chew their way into your attic if given any edge they can get their teeth into.
Water damaged wood on the roof or a fascia board will give them easy access once they discover the opportunity. Squirrels and chipmunks will begin to store a food supply almost immediately and take up residence.
Since these animals must chew continuously in order to wear down their teeth they will chew beams, wiring, insulation or any other things you might have stored up there. These pests can be difficult to evict because your attic is now their home.
