 The Christmas Mouse (Song by Erick Traplin)

One early Christmas Eve, before Santa came,
A mouse snuck out of his little hole and licked a candy cane.

Before he could escape, he heard the sound of little hooves,
It was Santa’s little reindeer, prancing on the roof.

Down the chimney Santa came and stood before the mouse,
And asked him if he was the owner of the house.

The mouse was very pleased and held himself up tall,
Said, “I am the little mouse, who lives inside the wall.”

And I scurry “round by night, looking for a bite,
A little scrap of food, to take home to my wife,

Who lives with me inside the wall, with my children all
Oh, I am the little mouse, who lives inside the wall.

Well, Santa laughed so hard, a tear fell from his eye,
To see a mouse so proud, and not the least bit shy.

He said I can’t recall, meeting one so brave and small,
As the little mouse, who lives inside the wall.

Santa wiped a joyful tear from his twinkling eye,
Then Santa asked the mouse, with what he could supply.

A fire truck, a tricycle, or a big red ball,
Anything at all for the mouse inside the wall.

Oh, it would be so nice, if I could have a slice,
A little piece of pie, to take home to my wife.

Who lives with me inside the wall, with my children all.
Said the little mouse, who lives inside the wall.

Santa reached inside his pack, brought out a pie so small,
That it would even fit, within the mouse’s tiny paw.

And every time you took a bite, it came back to its all,
And gave it to the little mouse, who lives inside the wall.

Then Santa quickly filled the stockings hanging in a row,
And with a merry Christmas, up the chimney he did go.

The mouse then sang a song, as he ran off down the hall.
Sang, I am the little mouse, who lives inside the wall

And I scurry ’round by night, looking for a bite,
A little scrap of food, to take home to my wife,

Who lives with me inside the wall, with my children all.
Oh, I am the little mouse, who lives inside the wall.
Oh, I am the little mouse, who lives inside the wall

Mice Control is More than Just Extermination

Here at Advantage Pest Control we are proud to offer our customers integrated pest management. For mice control specifically, treatment in the form of putting down bait stations and other extermination methods is only one aspect of our service. Our mice specialists offer a thorough inspection of the property being serviced along with recommendations based on the inspection on how to proactively prevent future infestations. One example of this is locating potential rodent entry points and making the appropriate recommendations on how to seal or cover such holes and openings.

Just the other day, one of our technicians serviced a home for mice with two very attractive rodent entry points.

Mice Entry Point: Cold Cellar Vent
Mice Entry Point: Vent for a cold cellar
Mice Entry Point: Dryer Vent
Mice Entry Point: Vent for a dryer

As pictured above, vents are definite easy entry points for both mice and rats. Rodents simply crawl through them and get inside your house. Dryer lint is especially attractive as well, as it is wonderful material for creating nests. In this particular case, our technician found droppings in both of these locations.

Therefore, when choosing a pest control company for your mice control needs, make sure you pick a company that offers more than just extermination services. Here at Advantage Pest Control Inc., we are proud to offer all encompassing services that not only help you to treat your mice issue at the present moment, but also offer you personalized recommendations for proactive preventative maintenance. This integrated approach along with our wealth of knowledge and experience makes our services truly unique.

So give us a call and speak to a mice control specialist today: 416-840-4040

Even if you do not currently have a mouse issue, our leading rodent control specialists are more than happy to provide you with a home inspection to help mouse-proof your home for the winter. As all pest industry professionals know, mice season is upon us and the best pest control is pest prevention.

Mice normally live outdoors during the warmer months and gradually move indoors as the weather gets colder. So if you are a home-owner in the Greater Toronto Area, an inspection is highly recommended, especially this time of year.

Business and commercial property owners, we are happy to service you as well!

For you we provide FREE inspections!
