Local Experts in Mice Control & Property Care
Mice are capable of causing considerable damage to your property. They will chew through wooden beams, floorboards, cupboards, fascias and more to gain access to your home and destroy your belongings, soft furnishings, and even loft insulation to build their nests.
Signs of a Mouse Infestation
If you’ve noticed one or more of these signs around your home, then it’s highly likely you’ve got yourself a mice infestation. But don’t panic! Contact us as soon as possible, and we’ll be out to deliver our expert treatments at the next most suitable time.
Mice are primarily nocturnal animals that will be most active during the early hours of the morning. Generally, this is when our homes are the quietest, with everyone in bed asleep, so as they venture around your property looking for food and water, you will be able to hear them. Listen out for scuttling noises as they run across your floorboards and scratching noises in the loft or cupboards as they rip up any materials they can find
If mice have entered your property, then it’s inevitable that they will cause damage somewhere across your home. Either they will have chewed their way through air vents, pipes, doors or fascias to enter the building, or they’ve ripped up your loft insulation to create a nest. They will chew through food packaging, paperwork, electrical wires, furniture and more, so look out for tiny teeth marks around your home.
Mice leave behind droppings wherever they go. Producing around 80 droppings every night, you’ll definitely begin to notice them over time. Mice droppings are smaller than rat droppings, measuring roughly 5mm in length, and are usually dark brown or black in colour. They will appear to be scattered randomly across all affected areas. If you see mice droppings, please take care when cleaning them up as they could contain dangerous diseases. Wear a face covering, disinfect the area carefully and make sure to wash your hands thoroughly afterwards.
As well as droppings, mice will also urinate throughout your home. Their urine has a distinctive and strong ammonia-like smell that will only worsen over time. Over time, their urine combines with the dirt and the oils from their body to create what is referred to as ‘urine pillars’. These structures look like small mounds of dust and typically measure around 4cm high. If you’ve noticed a new and unexplainable foul scent around your home, it could be mice. Pay attention to where the smells are stronger, as this can help to identify the problem areas of the property.

The job was completed very quickly which was of the utmost importance due to the biohazards found. I cannot recommend PestMax highly enough and out of the other two businesses I contacted claiming to be professional and responsive, Im still waiting for them to get back to me after three weeks! I realise that they were possibly not equipped for the job, whereas Dan and his experience in this kind of situation was the perfect guy.
Kieron came out to us today, he was very helpful and polite, he was on time and very professional. The service received was great
Fantastic work from Dan. Speedy quote and work completed quickly and efficiently. Great communication. Would recommend to all.
Dan came out the day that I called and dealt with the wasp’s nest quickly and professionally. So far we’ve seen no more wasps so I think he solved the problem! Would definitely recommend.
Called Dan who was great on the phone and came a day later to sort the problem. He is fantastic to deal with, explained what he was doing and why, and even cleared up as much of the dead wasps as he could. Great service, and would recommend to anyone who has a problem with wasps! Thank you
Polite & professional guys who got on and did the job required. I would definately use them again and would highly recommend them.
Dan got rid of a problematic wasp nest. Was super responsive, gave an overview about them and was done within 30 minutes. Great service and the best value out there
Can not recommend pestmax more! We had a very persistent ants nest in our bathroom, we called dan out when we first noticed them. Dan arrived on time and had the upmost professionalism whilst being friendly, Dan quickly located where the nest was and advised the best treatment plan as we have an under 5 in the house. Dan was more than happy to come back to lay more bait down when needed and was easy to reach with any questions we had. I am pleased to say the ants are no more thanks to pestmax! Considering the amount of time spent and product used for this we found the pricing to be very reasonable too which helps with the way of current affairs at the moment.
I had a problem with lots of maggots, which were coming into the house. I had tried everything, but they just kept coming back. I rung Dan and within 10 minutes he came round. The problem was linked to a wasp nest, which Dan explained in detail and he rectified the issue within an hour and a half. Dan literally is a star. He was friendly whilst remaining professional. He explained everything and discussed costs The whole matter has made me feel at ease in my own home. Would definitely recommend this company and would use again.
Submitted a couple of requests for quotes via Checkatrade to have a wasps nest treated. Dan from Pestmax replied by text within minutes. I called him and agreed the price, which was very reasonable and considerably less than anyone else who replied. He came out that afternoon, on time and sorted it out. I’ll definitely recommend him and use him again should the need arise. Cheers mate - good job
Just the most helpful kind people which I can’t thank enough highly recommend
We had A rat in our garden. Dan was soon out as I am petrified of them. He put poison down in a proper rat box and made sure everything was safe for our dogs. A week later came back to see if there was any progress. Sachets of poison had been taken back to the burrow. He put my mind at ease to tell me that with the amount taken any rats would be well gone. He took the remaining poison and box away for peace of mind with the dogs. A lovely, friendly and reassuring man. I wouldn’t hesitate to use again thoroughly recommend. Thanks Dan.
Dan was really helpful and friendly. Explained exactly what needed to be done, was efficient professional and the service was a reasonable price. I’m glad to say the wasps are gone!
Excellent response and service would highly recommend. Visited same day. Helped advise us of the best and safest course of action, wouldn’t hesitate to use them again. Thank you
