Mice are very harmful pests, damaging and eating crops and spreading diseases through their parasites and feces. There are two common types of mouse species that enter homes and businesses. The house mouse is a smaller rodent that has a slightly pointed nose; small, black, somewhat protruding eyes; larger ears; and are nearly hairless. They are generally grayish brown with a gray or buff belly. The deer mouse has white feet, usually white undersides and brownish upper surfaces. Their tails are relatively long, sometimes as long as the head and body. Their tails are also sharply bi-colored. In comparison to house mice, deer mice have larger eyes and ears.
Mice are commensal; that is, they share space with humans and partially depend upon us to survive. They require food, shelter and water in order to survive and therefore are always looking for these elements. They can enter a hole less that 1/4 of an inch in diameter. Most structures are not sealed appropriately, leaving many entry points for rodents.
Yes. The deer mouse transmits the potentially fatal Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome. The disease can be transmitted through contact with mouse carcasses, or by breathing in aerosolized urine droplets of infected deer mice. Micro droplets of mouse urine can cause allergies in children. Mice can also bring fleas, mites, ticks and lice into your home.
Getting rid of mice can be a tricky task as they are very elusive creatures. That's why our service includes the necessary products and follow up visits for one fee. Our treatment methods consist of the following:
Initial Service - Detailed inspection of the interior and exterior of your home, then a targeted treatment of all areas where activity is present. Each Initial Service includes the application of seven exclusive Pest Guard steps, designed to rid your home of unwanted pests and keep them away.
Follow Up - Quarterly interior/exterior or exterior-only services will be scheduled as part of our annual Integrated Pest Management program. All Schendel Premium Care customers enjoy the benefit of our PestZero Guarantee. If pests return in between visits, Schendel returns for free.
Schendel is 100% committed to helping you ASAP. In most cases, we can respond the same or very next day.
Schendel uses the least amount of material as possible while still resolving the problem. We utilize natural products, baits and mechanical means as a form of treatment as much as possible. When conventional materials are required, we follow very stringent guidelines for the use of the product so that it poses no threat to people, pets or plants. All products are found to be effective and registered by the EPA. Our service technicians will inform you of any specific safety measures that need to be taken.
We have standard pricing for all of our pest services, based on average size homes under 3500 square feet and where the infestation does not require more than the standard number of services.

"I have used Schendel Services for more than 20 years and Tom Hobbs has been my serviceman the whole time. In the 20 plus years, this is the third house Tom has serviced.
He is an exceptional man and I trust him completely to do a good and thorough job. I don't know what your other service people are like, but if they are all like Tom you are a very lucky man.
Thank you for employing such a nice and honest man."
