Studies have shown that mice are developing behavioural and chemical resistance to common methods of extermination which include traps and rodenticides. We have labelled these as 'super mice'.
One of our solutions is called CARE, which stands for Canine Assisted Rodent Eradication, or other words, Archie. Archie is a specially-trained sniffer dog who has been trained to indicate exactly where a mouse enters and exits a building, and to identify specific areas of high use, such as regularly-used mouse ‘runs’. When Archie finds current mouse infestations, he will indicate by pointing his nose and standing very still in the exact location of the mice.
This method allows our rodent control technicians to place traps and rodenticides much more accurately, avoiding any guesswork. This reduces the quantity of toxic poisons, and can significantly reduce the time required to achieve eradication.
Ultimately you get a clearer view of where the infestation lies and the extent of the mice infestation.
Archie is able to:
- Identify and specifically locate active mouse infestations with a high level of accuracy compared with other methods;
- Ignore old infestations and focus only on current activity;
- Ignore the scents of other types of rodents and sniff out only mice.
