Effective Mouse Removal in Gatineau and Ottawa: Prioritizing Safety and Long-Term Solutions

At Aspen Wildlife Control, we understand the frustration and health risks associated with a micee infestation in your Gatineau or Ottawa home.  We prioritize safe and effective solutions to eliminate these unwelcome guests, adhering to all provincial regulations.  Here’s an overview of our approach:

Inspection and assessment:

Our experienced technicians will conduct a thorough inspection of your property to identify potential entry points and signs of mice activity.  This includes searching for droppings, gnaw marks, and potential nesting areas.  We’ll also assess the presence of young mice, as provincial regulations regarding removal differ slightly for females with pups.  We strictly adhere to these guidelines set forth by Ontario’s Ministry of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources and Forestry (OMNRF) and Quebec’s Ministry of Forests, Fauna and Parks (MFFP).

Safe and effective removal methods:

We prioritize methods that eliminate mice humanely and effectively, following provincial regulations.  Here are some common techniques we employ:

      • Exclusion techniques:  These methods allow mice to leave your property on their own but prevent them from re-entering.  This approach is favored by the OMNRF and MFFP for its humane effectiveness.
        • One-way doors: Strategically installed at entry points like crawl spaces or behind appliances, these doors allow trapped mice to exit but prevent them from returning.
        • Sealing entry points: We’ll use durable materials to seal gaps around your foundation, eaves, and other potential entry points, eliminating future access.

Live trapping and relocation (when necessary)

In some situations, live trapping may be necessary.  We only use traps approved by the OMNRF and MFFP, and adhere to all provincial trapping regulations.  Our traps are placed strategically and monitored regularly to minimize stress on the animals.  Captured mice are then relocated to suitable habitats away from human residences, following provincial guidelines for wildlife relocation. This ensures the animal has a chance to thrive in a natural environment.

Why we avoid certain methods:

We prioritize methods that are safe, effective, and humane.  Here’s why we avoid certain approaches:

      • Poisons: These pose a danger to pets, children, and other wildlife through accidental ingestion or secondary poisoning. They’re also ineffective for long-term solutions, as they don’t address the attractants that lured the mice in the first place.
