Pest Control Kent Services

Discreet and quick response commercial and residential pest control in Kent.

Hyden UK offer an Kent and nationwide service to attend and carry out reactive or routine pest control.

The most common rodent here in the UK is the 'house mouse' (Mus musculus). This pest is small in size generally between 3 and 10cm in length. The house mouse is a rodent pest that has been causing damage to both commercial and residential properties for years, chewing through electrical cables, food stuffs, packaging, raw materials and boxed goods. They even contaminate our food or food preparation surfaces spreading disease, and actually breeding wherever they populate.

Mice are known to feed on virtually any available food source. Mice are great climbers, incredibly agile, good jumpers and are capable of fitting through openings much smaller than their own bodies and can fit through a gap no bigger than the end of a ballpoint pen.

Mice have a very short gestation period around twenty one days, and can have as many as 16 young. The young reach sexual maturity in as little as six weeks. Just a quick calculation tells you that one pair of mice can result in 2,000 offspring in a single year.

How to Recognise Mouse Infestations

Signs of mouse infestation include droppings, gnaw marks on furniture, tracks and rodent sightings. House mice have an easily recognisable damp, musky odour. Mouse nests, made from fine shredded fibres such as paper and other household items are found in quieter less obvious locations. Mice are generally more active at night however they are also spotted during daylight areas especially those that do not generally have a high footfall.

Treatment and Prevention of Mice

Pest Control Bait Box Kent

Following a survey by one of Hyden UK's trained and qualified pest control Kent professionals, we will agree a treatment plan, which may include placing plastic tamper-resistant baiting points in numerous and varied locations, the use of tracking powders and any other treatment deemed necessary throughout the infested areas to coincide with the activities of the offending pest.

Mice are omnivores, feeding little and often. Effective pest control can only be reached by intense baiting, often linked with proofing measures, to prevent further ingress. However, considering a fully grown mouse is able to squeeze through incredibly small gaps, complete prevention of access to a building may be somewhat difficult.
