Anypest will do a thorough inspection of entire house and most importantly the attic.

The Anypest technician will seal any holes or voids with wire mesh and spray foam to ensure your home is sealed. Simply removing the mice from your home won’t be enough and we will also ensure they are not able to re-enter your home.

Mice can also climb up your exterior walls and get into your attic then gain entry to your home,  we bait the attic with poison packets inside bait boxes.

Anypest can also clean and disinfect mice feces with Eco friendly sanitizer. Contact us now if you want to remove mice for good.
