How mouse proofing protects your living space with 12months FREE guarantee
MERIDA is unique. It is a mouse proofing system proven by over a decade of research and testing to be a highly effective way to get rid of mice.
We protect your living space from the inside out, by blocking every single way mice can get in. That way, they cannot reach the food they need to survive. So, they must leave your property to find another place to live. While you can relax, and get on with your life – mice-free.
How to get rid of mice – our proven 6-step process
1. We are considerate
We understand that every home is unique. This is why we pay attention to every detail of your home, from materials and maintenance through to any environmental factors that make your property unique.
2. We are thorough
We assess your property and surrounding land in order to ensure that we are certain of every potential entry point for mice into your home. We listen to your experiences; we ask the necessary questions. Once we have checked all we can, we let you know all your options and can get straight to ridding you of your mice problem, often in just a single visit.
3. We understand
When it comes to mice, we know exactly what we are dealing with. We understand how the mouse thinks, and so we are able to restrict even the smallest of access points that other pest controllers miss. We allow you to live in a home, not a habitat.
4. We are professionals
All our employees are skilled pest control technicians, who are trained in construction and building design. Their unique knowledge of mice behaviour and building structures allows them to complete their jobs in the safest and most efficient way possible.
5. We use only the best materials
Thanks to our vast experience working in this industry, we know exactly what materials are needed for any job, in any room, and on any property. We make sure that all of our work is discreet and carried out to the highest standards, so you won’t be able to tell that we were ever there.
6. We use only the most effective equipment
Our professionals use exclusive pest control equipment, meaning that other pest controllers won’t be able to offer the same excellent results as us. Our totally unique techniques and equipment enables us to reach even the tightest corners in your home, without causing any disruption.
Proofing for Rats, Mice & Squirrels
A large proportion of our rat and Mouse jobs at MERIDA are associated with rats, terraced and semi detached houses. This means that in a lot of these types of dwellings control just by using rodenticides may be short lived and re infestation is likely to occur. How long before (or if) the dwelling is re infested depends on individual circumstances but unless the external access points are found and dealt with then re infestation is likely. In an ideal world the whole of the building (as well as sewers and utility pipes, cables & conduits) should be inspected for breaches and fixed. As in a lot of cases this is not possible then proofing individual rooms from the inside may be the only option.
Rats and mice may travel some distance undetected through cavity walls, soffits and loft spaces before either coming to an area where they are seen, they are heard or evidence (droppings, smells or damage) is noted. They may be entering a row of terraced houses several properties away from where they are actually appearing. The route into a building may be sub terrain. In many cases blocking access points externally is not possible so proofing individual houses or rooms is the answer. If an area is boxed off (which is normal in modern bathrooms and kitchens) then holes and gaps around pipes are often left open by builders as they are not seen but which allow access by rodents.
Kitchens, lofts and bathrooms are the rooms with the most utilities in (kitchens have food as well) so these are the rooms in a dwelling that rodents will have easiest access to once they are in the structure of the building.
Mice can get through a 1cm gap. Proofing for rodents needs to be carried out by someone who understands rodents & their behaviour. To do this properly is time consuming and costly.
