Not a Creature Was Stirring…Not Even a Mouse: Critter-Proof Your Home for the Holidays

It’s cold outside, and the mice want in. Sadly, if you see one mouse in your house, there are usually several more hiding somewhere. And if that isn’t bad enough, mice are able to reproduce every 21 days! 

With that said, within a year, two mice reproducing could result in 5,000 mice in a single home. Yikes! If you need help with animal proofing your home, Skedaddle is the #1 wildlife control company to call. Our critter control Franchise Owners are kept busy all year round, offering humane wildlife removal solutions for people who love animals…just not in their houses!

About Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control

Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control was established in 1989 to provide humane wildlife control solutions to homeowners. President and CEO Bill Dowd believed there had to be better ways than the cruel and ineffective methods used at the time. From this conviction, his dream of a humane service for wildlife control was born.

We are committed to pioneering a new standard for humane pest control practices, focusing on protecting human health and the environment.

Customers want to know that the animals in their homes aren’t trapped or killed, but they also want assurance that they won’t return! Skedaddle provides humane, harmless wildlife management and gives wild animals a better quality of life.
