Professional Mice and Rat Control
We will send you a technician to visit your commercial locations and offer a free evaluation and proposal; for the smaller commercial sites, we can provide a quotation for Mice Control over the phone, depending on the size of the site. For a professional treatment, we will need to conduct an initial treatment followed by regular monitoring and rebaiting program to achieve optimum control. We provide the best control of mice in Canada.
Quarterly/Monthly monitoring and treatment Program:
After the initial service, implementing an ongoing mouse control monthly/quarterly anti-pest management program was advised. The first visit will be commenced 30 days from the date of initial treatment. Price will depend on the size of the site and mice activity. The monthly service will include internal and external monitoring, servicing equipment and re-baiting as necessary. Following each visit, a report will be submitted recommending rodent proofing and other safety measures. Ecopest is the Professional pest service provider for mice control in Canada.

Mice and Rat Treatment to Residential House:
Our professionals carry out the rodenticidal baiting treatment as we are the Leading pest service for mice control in Edmonton, Regina, and Calgary. On arriving on site, our professional inspect the premises to find out where the mouses are. Upon determining this, they place out commercial strength poison bait in the areas of activity. This bait is placed in tamper-proof stations to ensure that pets and children cannot access the bait. The technicians then carry out a complete inspection of the premises for all potential mouse entry points. They locate and draw these areas to your attention and recommend how they should be sealed.
Ecopest is the pest and rodent control service leader in Edmonton, Calgary, Regina, Saskatoon, and throughout Canada.
Hantavirus is a disease transmitted by deer mice that can be transmitted by the mouse, its droppings, and urine. It can only be transmitted from the deer mouse to the human being. In 65-77% of instances, it is deadly. Therefore, we recommend that cleaning up mice droppings be done by professionals. We apply germicidal to neutralize any viruses and then clean up and remove the droppings. Generally, we do this after a mouse treatment has been carried out so that the mice are gone. Otherwise, you will need a few HV cleanups rather than just one.
If you would like to book HV cleanup, please call our office at 780- 448-2661 or email us at email@example.com.

Mice & Rat Facts
In all of Canada, mice in the house or any premises are standard. They can be dusk-gray to tan or brown and altogether size between 2.5 and 4″ in length with huge ears and lengthy tails. Deer’s mouses are 4 to 9, reddish-brown in hue with a white breast, white paws and a bicolor tail.
A mouse has an average lifespan of 18 months. A single female can have up to eight litters a year, with each litter averaging five to six young. Under some circumstances, Mice may survive outside in winter but usually penetrate constructions when the weather is cold to search for both food and protection. Mice are year-round pests. Activity and indoor migration increase as the weather get cooler. Deer mice naturally inhabit rural & semi-rural locations in areas such as fields, pastures & various types of vegetation found around homes & outbuildings. Generally, mice commonly invade garages, attics, sheds, woodpiles, crawl spaces, and general living quarters of homes. Their ground nests are established in hollow trees, building voids and spaces, unused equipment, cabinet voids, along with the sill plate in basements and crawl spaces, log piles, unused furniture, fence posts, and old bird and squirrel nests.

DAMAGE CAUSED BY MICE
Mice may cause considerable damage to homes, granaries, restaurants, bakeries, and any other location where food is handled or kept. They will eat their way inside structures by gnawing through the wood. When building their nests, mice will destroy fabrics and leather goods and cause fires by chewing through the insulation on electrical wires. Mice can also contaminate food with their droppings and urine. Deer mice also present the possibility of introducing Hantavirus through their droppings. They spread such diseases as salmonella bacteria (food poisoning), leptospira (jaundice), and typhus. As well, they carry parasites such as fleas, roundworms and mites. A bite inflicted by a mouse should receive prompt medical attention. The droppings from deer mice also pose a risk for Hantavirus. Contact a professional like us if you face a problem with mice in your home, office, or any place and want to get rid of them. Ecopest is the leading professional for mice control Regina.

DIY – Do it yourself tips – Mice and Rats
Prevention of Mice and Rats
Since food contributes to a mouse infestation, it is crucial to preserve a decent household—store items in tightly sealed jars or tins to prevent infestations. Furthermore, store all garbage in containers with tight-fitting lids. Seal all openings to the outside, especially those around doors and windows, such as cracks or faulty weather stripping. Improperly installed garage doors and openings around pipes and electrical wiring also provide entry into a residence for mice. All potential entry points inside should be adequately sealed, as well. These include cracks in corners of cupboards, improperly fitted baseboards, openings around pipes and air vents. Generally, using steel wool or a caulking compound to close access points is sufficient. Call an expert like us if you have a mouse problem in your home, business, or other location and want to get rid of them. Ecopest is Regina’s most trusted pest management service provider for mice control.
Control of Mice and Rats
There are several products available from Ecopest Inc. professionally developed for the control mice.
FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions – Rodents
Yes, they can climb. Mice can even get into dryer vents and even attics.
Mouse can breed every three weeks with 1 to 10 young so extremely fast!
Mice and Rats don’t hibernate.
Even though mice view these as predators, they will enter the home searching for warmth, shelter, food, etc. They will attempt to avoid predators internally just as they do externally.
Indirectly, yes, but if the home has lots of other food or open garbage, the mice will go for this instead of the bait, so sanitation is an integral part of mice control.
Yes to mice, barely noticeable by human.
No, we do not go back to pick up the bait stations, as it will against the purpose of controlling the mice. A client can keep the bait station, especially the external large bait station, and make sure they will be rebaited twice per year.
No, they are not the same; our poison bait is commercial-grade; therefore, it will be stronger. The use of commercial-grade pest control products is only for professionals.
No, we do not carry any sonic devices, as these do not work. Initially, it may scare the mice away, but they get used to the noise over time.
Mice will learn to avoid the live and snap traps after some time, so poison is preferable. Homeowners have to monitor traps closely to prevent decay. For the bait stations, they will be more ECO friendly.
It is recommended that professionals clean up droppings as they can potentially carry viruses. If you will clean them yourself, DO NOT vacuum or sweep the droppings as this can cause them to become airborne. Send the client our HV Clean up procedure if needed.
For a small area (such as only noticed a few dropping in a small area, they can clean up with a 10% bleach solution and exercise caution by using gloves, a mask and eye protection.
Mice droppings aren’t good enough to determine the species. We recommend treating all mouse droppings with caution. Never sweep or vacuum droppings as this can cause them to become airborne.
Deer mice have a white underbelly; regular field mice and voles do not. Homeowners have found deer mice in Edmonton homes and buildings; however, they are most common in rural areas.
No, a study in Edmonton areas recently showed that only 4 out of 150 trapped deer mice carried out the Hantavirus. However, to be safe, people should assume all the mice and their droppings/urine are infectious.
Hantavirus is a disease carried out by deer mice that can spread from mice, droppings, and urine. It cannot be transmitted from human to human, only from deer mice to humans.
If our tech goes out for a rebaiting service, they can constantly re-check the house for entry points; when the house is getting older; it may develop new entry points. Sometimes, your house may have more poison bait stations; if so, a tech will recommend and place more bait stations on site.
No, you can’t rebait them by yourself as this is a commercial-grade poison and one needs a pesticide license to deal with it. We can certainly provide the key, and you can monitor the consumption of bait stations and make sure they will be rebaited on time.
This may work temporarily, but we do not recommend using it as the mice can chew through it and re-gain access.
Sorry that our technician cannot seal the entry points on the job day; however, if you want a professional service, we can send my manager to re-visit your site and provide a quotation for mice the proofing service.
Yes, if they are small gaps, cracks, then you can try to seal them by yourself. If it is an older house with lots of entry points, it might be not worth it, and it will be difficult and costly to seal all the entry points; it will be better to use more external large bait stations to reduce the exterior population; therefore it will reduce their chance to getting into homes. Depending on the entry points, you can choose to use silicone, steel wool, weather stripping, vent screen etc. You can buy these materials from Home-Depot, Rona, and Canadian Tire, etc.
The mice bait is a non-volatile compound that does not get into the air. Therefore when we place them out in the tamper-proof stations, there is no danger from the poison. Also, the contract MSDS (material safety data sheet) is available on our website.
The bait is good for three months but active for one year. We recommend replacing the bait ideally every three months, as it loses its potency. At a minimum, the rebaiting should be done twice per year, every spring and every fall.
We can’t tell over the phone, as it is hard to assess and see what is going on at that particular site. The technician will give you an exact number on-site; however, for an average house, a tech will place around 8-12 small stations inside the house. They will usually place around 2 ~ 6 external bait stations for the external control. The number of poison bait stations will depend on the size of the house, structure of the house, whether the house is new or old, whether it is well maintained or not, whether it is in the ravine area or old neighbourhood etc.
Upon the assessment, a technician will place the stations in the hidden strategic areas, such as underneath the kitchen sink, behind the stove, behind the fridge, etc.
The likelihood of secondary poisoning is very low. The animal would need to eat many mice for the pet to be affected. (Or the risk of secondary poisoning is negligible, as the pet would need to eat more than their body weight in mice for them to become sick) Also, on the job date, our technician will show you all the areas where he placed out the bait stations so that you can continually monitor these areas and keep the kids/pets away from these areas.
Mice rarely die inside of bait stations. Mice tend to hoard food, taking a small bite of bait and carrying it back to their nests. Most of the time, they will consume the bait in their nest. Once they consume the right amount, the poison bait will make them ill and eventually die. The poison bait will de-hydrate their dead bodies not to become smelly or rotted.
If they do, the poison has a product in it that dries up the mouse so that it doesn’t rot. If you have a smell, the mouse died of natural causes.
Around 1~2 hours
Yes, we provide a 3-month guarantee provided that all the entry points are sealed, and all the recommendations are being followed (like sanitation, discard garbage etc.). We can send a technician to your place to do the follow-up inspection after 30 days. Tech will re-check all the entry points and ensure they are adequately sealed.
Since they are in a sealed area, the likelihood of the mice transmitting any disease is very remote. If the mice died of natural causes, they would most likely rot and cause an odour. If they have died through our poison, they will dry up and not have any odour.
Most often, you no longer have droppings and urine of the mice, and there is no longer food and other products being chewed. Q: How will I know that mice eat the poison bait? A: You will notice the greenish/blue colour dropping (colour of our bait).
