Its almost daily that I have a customer tell me of the advice that recieved from a contractor, handyman, or another wildlife control "expert". The reality is that almost none of these "experts' have received any formal training, or education. Here in Michigan, anyone can get their wildlife control permit. No, testing, no mandatory insurance, no training, just shazamm you are a wildlife control professional "endorsed" by the DNR. Its sad that the consumer thinks anyone can do this work while protecting both the people and the resource, all while being effective. Maybe someday this will change, but after twenty plus years of performing wildlife control services I am beginning to have my doubts. I am proud of my certifications, training, and degrees, and in knowing that I am providing the public with biologically sound and scientifically backed solutions to their problems.

You might not see the mice, but can probably hear them, mostly at night, as this is when they tend to be more active. Your pet may even paw at walls and other areas where mice might be hiding. Look for mouse droppings and nests in the kitchen, garage, basement and other storage areas. Mice will often stock pile their food. One client found acrons underneath the bed covers in their guest bedroom. How do you control mice?
