The mullet in Montreal, a ruthless rodent pest

The mullet, also called field vole,lives preferably in the fields. His invasion of residences and gardens in search of food and shelter, and the damage it causes, creates aversion among the inhabitants. Because it is quite difficult to detect and fight these small rodents,contacting Delta Extermination remains the reflex to adopt if you live in Montreal and you are experiencing a mule infestation.

We intervene in Greater Montreal, in the municipalities of Montreal, Laval, Longueuil, South Shore, North Shore for rodent control and effective control against their infestation.

Step 1: Mullet control

The presence of mules can easily go unnoticed by you before turning into an invasion. Their excrement and droppings, the strong bad smells, the gnawed wires, the noises (trotting, often nocturnal rubbing) of their movement indicate that these animals of the muridae family have begun to colonize your living space.

The mullet also likes to dig in the garden galleries that sometimes go up to 30 feet deep. The professionals of Montreal Rodent Exterminator manage to detect these dug tunnels that can weaken the foundations and structure of your buildings. In addition to these inconveniences, mules carry several kinds of bacteria and diseases that can cause harm to human hosts. The hanta virus in particular is widespread there.

Among the most harmful rodents, the Mullet Apodemus Sylvaticus or Scots Mullet belongs to the 3 main species in Canada. At Delta Extermination, we have quality equipment and expertise for the control and control of the presence of harmful animals and insects. We also carry out smoke tests to detect faults or other damage to your building.

Step 2: Capture or eliminate the small rodent with Delta Extermination

In the case of black mules,or one of the many species, this small rodent remains a pest to be captured or exterminated as soon as possible depending on the level of infestation.

When the number of individuals to be eliminated is small, capture can be done with mechanical traps such as the sticky trap. In the event of a more significant population of mules, the use of toxic products forpoisoning and the rapid and effective eradication of these pests may occur, according to the opinion of the expert exterminator, after control. Our Delta Extermination team makes sure to use the rat poison, equipment and traps to be used for each type of unwelcome rodent and the place where they have settled.

It is advisable to react quickly, because the damage caused to the piping and cables of electrical installations by the mule sometimes generates fires, pipe leaks and contamination of the water you use. Mules have a fairly short life, but reproduce quickly. Our Delta Extermination certified professionals guarantee complete satisfaction throughout the Greater Montreal area and rapid intervention, with the products adapted to each type of rodent, because a trap intended for a rat will lack efficiency, against a mouse.

The mule, what to know to better eliminate its invasion?

The mullet, gray, brown or yellowish in color, lives about 18 months, and reproduces 2-4 times during this period. Its weight between 20 and 35 grams and its length of 8 to 12 cm go hand in hand with agility and leaps of up to 80 cm. Particularly dangerous for the garden, it causes havoc because of its usual diet in the wild. Fond of seeds, berries, vegetables, insects and roots, it attacks your blackberries, raspberries, carrots, turnips, potatoes and useful earthworms, creating serious damage to your growing ecosystem.

Odorous repellents, such as the urine of natural predators of the mullet for example, the smell of elder manure, or that of castor cake lined up around your plantations (also toxic if in human ingestion) offer some effectiveness. Some natural predators that you can encourage nearby in your fight include the cat, the weasel, or the boosel …

The majority of mules disappear during the autumn, but only occasionally, because in the face of winter rigor, they return to homes and gardens to enjoy hiding places and your crops.
