Since starting this site I have been getting some interest in my background and how I got started in mice extermination.
A little background about my self. I grew up in farm country for part of my childhood and was introduced to the “joy” of mice extermination at an early age. The worst incident involving mice was when I was around 12 years old which was the peak of our mouse problem. My parents had put traps every where and caught a decent amount but the mice just kept coming. I forgot to mention that before I lived in farm country I was living in a suburb where this wasn’t an issue. Needless to say mice extermination was all new to me. So any way, one night I’m in my bed innocently sleeping and I hear one of the mouse traps go off in the kitchen which immediately made me sit up. To my horror I felt something furry around my feet. As I lifted the covers I saw a tiny mouse run and jump off my bed and scurry behind my bookshelf. For years I was traumatised and I still get a little anxious when I see one even now.
Once we took control of the problem the mice still came around, just not as much. That’s when I decided I didn’t want to be living in fear anymore. I used to work on a small farm and decided to ask my boss if he had experience with exterminating mice and to my luck he had lots of it! He taught me some very valuable lessons. I decided to create this site to show the world what my boss taught me. My next post will discuss the top 3 lessons that helped me out so much.
