Tampa Mouse Removal & Extermination
Tampa Pest Wildlife ™ - to be honest, mice are very rare in the Tampa Bay area. Rats, Roof Rats specifically, are far more common. We do get many calls about "mice", but in all likelihood, you have actually seen a juvenile rat, which look almost identical and are very common. Some people also prefer the term "mouse" to the term "dirty stinking disease-ridden puke rat", but the truth is that the scampering in the night is not Mickey.
- Mice most commonly enter the walls or attic.
- You may hear scratching or scampering in the ceiling at night.
- You may find tiny mouse droppings or few gnawed on.
- We eliminate all mice and seal off all areas of entry.
- We clean up the mouse waste after we catch them, and clean the attic.

Hi, David, I just read your info on the internet about trapping mice. I am not in your area, but I am interested to hear about your fees. How much do you charge to trap the mice who are nesting in the house? I am a real estate agent in Williamsburg, and one of my homes has mice nesting in the roof of the porch. The mice have chewed through the trim (board was not in good shape). My clients are out of town, and I am taking care of the house for them while it’s on the market. I called a pest control company, but they don’t do mouse removal. So, they gave me the name of a guy who could take care of it. $2000 later… I think the mice are gone. This guy trapped 19 mice on the ground…at $75/mouse… some days 2 or 3 mice. And $45/visit… one visit each day. The job has taken over 2 weeks. Please tell me if you think this is normal and/or reasonable? I should have written for advice prior to agreeing to work with the guy, but he said that there are typically 2 adults and 3-4 juveniles… so 6 mice didn’t sound like the cost would be this extravagant. I’ve now found out that it makes more sense to put the traps on the roof (not on the ground as this guy did). By the way, it doesn’t appear the mice have gotten into the attic… just the roof of the porch. Thanks! Susan
What company did you hire? Yes, I don't see much of a point in setting traps all over the yard. In cases in which I deal with animals in a building, I usually mount a trap or one-way exclusion door right on the mouse hole, and solve the problem in just two service visits (1 setup visit, 1 takedown visit). Well, what's done is done, no use crying over spilt milk.
