Hi, was wondering if anyone could help? Recently found a mouse in the house and aws wondering if there is anyone locally who deals with pest control?

 

Any help or numbers much appreciated.

 

Thanks.

Mice usually come into houses this time of year. If you are not able to set traps yourself, do you know any friendly neighbours, who might? If you catch them quick enough there might only be one or two. However if left alone they soon breed.

A good quality ultrasonic device (one that switches frequencies) and a hungry cat sorted my problem.

Who does one call to control the pests who infest the SIC's staff though?
