Get the Mice Out with SFRC
Simple Four-Step Process
Mice require a unique approach because of their small size and how fast they reproduce. A mouse can squeeze through an opening as small as a dime to gain entrance into your home. SF Rodent Control takes a detailed fine comb approach that irradicates mice for good, with services that include mice removal, extermination, and prevention. We also provide specialized clean-up, crawl space decontamination, as well as attic decontamination.
We Eliminate The Trail Mice Leave
Much like rats, mice also leave a scent trail wherever they’ve been in your home, drawing more and more mice to follow! Since mice are so small, their existence many times goes unnoticed and the problem quickly becomes severe.
Mouse traps are not sufficient to eliminate the problem. SF Rodent Control knows how mice follow their smell back to places other mice have been, and how hard it can be to completely get rid of these scents. That’s why we attack infestation from multiple angles- sealing up entry points, neutralizing their pheromones and scent of direction, and cleaning up any possible health hazard they have left behind!

Crawl Space Cleaning
If you suspect mice in your home, it is important to know where to look and what signs to look for.
Rodents love water and will often be attracted to leaking pipes or drains. Another place to check is cupboards and closets where food is stored. These dark areas make the perfect place to hide.
Mice are tiny pests that have a major pooping problem. They can’t control their bowels, so they can leave as many as 40 to 100 droppings behind each day. While not all of these droppings are necessarily dangerous, mice may carry diseases, so all droppings should be treated as if they’re a hazard.
Adult mice make small poop pellets. They average around a quarter of an inch long or slightly more. They’re typically smooth and pointed on the ends, and they harden up into tough pellets after a few hours.
The majority of the time, mouse droppings are brown, but some will turn gray over time. Those who see black pellets should be warned that the problem may not be mice at all. Instead, the culprits could be rats.
Homeowners who have started to notice small, dark pellets around the home may not have realized what they were, but the reality is that they could be a sign of a rodent infestation. Our team can come out to identify the droppings, so homeowners can be sure of which pest is in the home and take steps to have them removed. Whether the pests are mice or rats, they must be removed for better health and safety in the home.
Mouse droppings are likely to be anywhere a mouse has been. Think about the pathways that a mouse might take through a house. They follow the baseboards, which means there could be a trail of droppings along those baseboards, around plants, under furniture and on pathways heading into the kitchen or pantry.
Some of the best places to look to check and see if there is a mouse infestation include:
Getting rid of mouse droppings is pretty simple because they usually harden up enough to be picked up with a gloved hand. It’s also possible to use a HEPA vacuum or sweeper to get the feces into a container that can be taken outside the home.
Note: Never sweep up feces without wearing a mask. It’s possible that mice droppings could contain the hantavirus, so if no mask is available, do not use a powered sweeper to clean the area. Instead, pick up the feces manually with a wet rag, like a paper towel, to avoid having hantavirus-containing dust get into the air.
Once the mouse droppings are removed, it’s important to clean up after them. Although they appear to be gone, we suggest using a disinfectant or sanitizing spray or a bleach-containing cleaning product, to wipe up urine and clean in the areas where the feces were present. Use the cleaning spray on a paper towel, so the entire towel can be thrown away as soon as the cleanup is finished.
