Infestations of mice are very common throughout Illinois due to the climate and urban sprawl. Hot, cold and wet weather drive mice indoors seeking shelter and food. They often infest attics, garages, sheds, dryer vents, cabinets and pantries. It’s important to call us as soon as you notice the first signs of an infestation. Mice are prolific breeders and have many litters throughout the course of a year, leading to exponential population growth.
The first sign of a mouse infestation is their droppings which are commonly found in attics, basements, cabinets, drawers, pantries, or under water heaters and heating units. Damage to the structure becomes very common. Mice chew through wood, plastic, wires, and anything else they come in contact with to wear down their constantly growing teeth. As populations increase inside the home, scurrying, scratching and squeaking sounds become more prevalent, especially at night.
Our technicians are professional, state-certified, and licensed pest control specialists. Mouse removal service begins with a licensed rodent technician providing a full inspection of your property to identify the infestation. During the inspection, we’ll identify the potential problem areas around your home or office. After the source of the problem is identified, your technician will point out other potential areas mice may nest and will show you the steps you can take to reduce future infestations. We’ll create a customized mice treatment plan for year-round protection, using the most effective and environmentally-conscious rodent control solutions. We use only the most efficient non-toxic traps and chemicals, ensured to optimize safety for you, your family, and your business, while swiftly removing your pest problem.
Mice can bring in other unwanted pests like bed bugs, fleas, lice, mites, and ticks. Mice create unsanitary conditions, spreading disease with their urine and droppings. Their waste spreads bacteria leading to food poisoning. They commonly damage insulation, wiring and other household items while nesting. Mice cause house fires by chewing on and shorting out electrical cables. Mice will use the insulation, wiring, garbage, fabirc, newspapers, and other found materials to build their nests.
Chris is an absolute legend when it comes to pest control. His years of experience in the field was super helpful for a huge mice issue I had at my home this year! Thanks Chris!
I have been a customer of Bigfoot for about 10 years. Both Chris and Joe have provided great service over the course of nearly a decade. From spiders to mice, they have taken care of my needs. They have always been on time and very flexible. I can’t say enough about the quality and professionalism of their service. I highly recommend Bigfoot Pest Control Services.
I have a minor mice issue in my home, I contacted Chris this morning and he had a grade A technician Luis out. Chris gave me a lesson in Mice 101 over the phone and couldn't have given better communication and expectations. Luis was very professional and even when we thought he was finished checking, he wanted to double check spots. I can't recommend them more.
Luis came out to do an inspection and was thorough. He found areas that mice could be getting in that we didn't think of checking and sure enough found droppings. Luis was very personable and professional and patient with any concerns or questions I had. Also when calling for service Chris was great and very responsive, they are the reason for their high ratings. I called another pest control company prior and never received a call back so I'm glad I went with Bigfoot Pest Control.
Bigfoot came in to set mouse bait stations after mouse sightings were reported by my tenants. I also believed, based on some language in the Angie's List Deal, that they would identify the entry points during their visit, which was not the case. The tenants reported mice sightings two weeks after Bigfoot came the first time, so Bigfoot came back for a follow up at no extra cost. They accommodated a tight schedule and were very professional and accommodating. As additional assurance that the mice would not return, I ended up hiring another company to block possible entry points. I also set sticky traps and set up the sonar mice deterrents. I do believe the mice are gone now. Although I wish the service had been more robust instead of just bait stations, but I have to say they did everything they said they would, and the communication and service was very professional.
