Facts about the pest

There are four common mouse found throughout the South Coast

  1. The Western European House Mouse – Mus Musculus,
  2. The Wood Mouse or Long Tailed Field Mouse – Apodemus sylvaticus,
  3. The Yellow Necked Field Mouse – Apodemus flavicollis
  4. The Harvest Mouse – Micromys minutus..

Mice along with rats pose a serious risk to health. Typhus, Salmonella, Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome can all be extremely hazardous to health both in the home and workplace. Mice throughout the UK have an unfavourable reputation for causing fires and electrical damage as a result of chewing cables.

Being commensal (living from mans table) mice like rats are predominantly nocturnal (active at night). Touch,smell and hearing are favoured over eyesight enabling a quick response from predation.

Lifecycle – Sexually mature females at 5-6 weeks have a pregnancy of 21 days falling pregnant again immediately after giving birth. The weaning process coincides with the 21 day pregnancy where a litter size of 5 to 8 young will be born.

Understanding the Characteristics, Biology and Lifecycle is what allows TP Pest Control Technicians to deliver a Professional Service. All TP Pest Control Technicians hold the RSPH (Royal Society for Public Health) Level 2 Certificate and have undergone specialist training with the BPCA (British Pest Control Association). We are also members of the NPTA (National Pest Technicians Association).

TP Pest Control Services

Why choose us?

TP Pest Services are experts in removing mice and the proofing of buildings. Unlike many pest companies we do not use poison rodenticides within households as this can cause more serious issues with dead mice causing a nasty smell within cavities and under flooring, they then become an attractant for flies and rats which feed on the carcass.

We also offer CCTV inspections and use industry leading external poison bait boxes which utilise current technology making them as safe as possible.

Combined with ultra violet tracking dust and many years of experience we also have humane live capture boxes offering a guaranteed solution.

  • Recommend to anyone!

    We had mice and rats in our shed and garden. We found this out when we discovered a hole that the mice had made through the shed and grass seeds were all over the floor that were originally in a box! We called Terry and he and his dog max came to us within a few days. He explained what he suspected and informed us about how he was going to treat this situation. He placed some traps down (a bit different to the ones you imagine!) and explained how they worked. He came back the following week and concluded it was definitely mice and rats. He left it a couple more weeks and checked again. We found his knowledge to be brilliant. He is really nice too which is always good when you rely on a professional to help you. We would definitely use him again and recommend to anyone.

  • Thank you very much TP pest control!

    We contacted Terry and his assistant Max when we suspected rats. Terry with a full diary managed to fit us in straight away and was at the door in the same day. He was very polite, well mannered and talked us through the service he would provide. It was a quick and efficient job carried out by both Terry and his right hand man Max. He was on time and always went the extra mile! After a few visits the problem has been dealt with and we are extremely satisfied with the service we have received from Terry, he is a top bloke and also made us aware of how we can prevent these problems in the future. I cant fault Terry and the service TP pest control provided. I couldn't recommend him anymore!
