You may want to subscribe to his channel if you enjoy this video! Very dramatic, entertaining and educational!

When it comes to food, few cities serve up as much great fare as Winnipeg. Our dining scene is diverse and exciting, with fresh new restaurants popping up every month, serving food inspired by cultures from all around the world. There’s a lot that goes into running a restaurant, from finding the perfect location to paring down your menu to only the most delectable dishes, to getting your name out there and setting the right price. The enterprise is expensive, and costs are mitigated through only one avenue: people eating there, every night. That’s why having your restaurant closed for any amount of time can spell disaster. About 30 restaurants were closed due to health violations in Manitoba in 2018. Among the violations? Failure to prevent the presence of rodents. Continue reading

What type of damage can mice cause? Well, the mouse exterminator pros at Gilles Lambert Pest Control covers that subject below. Mice may cause structural damage to offices, apartments, homes, and pretty much any kind of structure through defecation, nest-building, and gnawing:
- Mice chew on virtually anything they see as helpful in nest-building. It might be books, cloth, paper, wood etc.
- A mouse will burrow and gnaw into upholstered furnishings – or seats of vehicles – to create a snug, hidden nest.
- Insulation isn’t safe from mice either. They’ll tunnel into insulation inside attics and walls, either to collect soft materials for nesting or to make a home.
- Also, mice chew on insulation that surrounds wires. It has been well-known to cause a fire threat.
- They’ll build their nests in big electrical appliances, chewing through or on wiring and insulation, which may cause the appliance to malfunction, short circuit, or lead to a fire risk.
- The mice don’t have any respect for any item … they’ll gnaw into and on virtually any chewable object that’s stored inside the closet, garage, basement, or attic– which includes valuable paintings, irreplaceable family heirlooms, and critical documents.
Learning how to eliminate mice starts with one easy choice: do you want to do things the hard way or the easy way? Helping eliminate mice may be as easy as making a call to Gilles Lambert Pest Control’s mice control service, otherwise, it may seem like you are chasing invisible mice inside walls. For all those brave folks who want to face the disease-carrying rodents by yourself, here is what you should know about how to eliminate mice.
Eliminate entry points
Rodent-proofing your house, or building mice out, is an efficient method of stopping mice infestations from spreading or ever happening in the first place. You can defend your home from mice by eliminating easy access and points of entry. It may be challenging due to a mouse’s capability of squeezing itself inside even the smallest of openings. One good rule is if it’s possible to fit a pencil inside an opening, hole, or crack a mouse is able to get through it.
