Everything You Need to Know About How Much A Mice Exterminator Costs
We get asked “how much does an exterminator cost for mice” all the time. In Dallas, there are plenty of mice, and depending on your situation, the cost will vary. Unless you have a severe infestation of mice, the problem can usually be fixed with your quarterly pest control treatment, which is around $500-600 a year. If you’re looking just for mice treatment, you can plan on paying less. You can see our mice extermination pricing here for more specifics.
Really, it depends on how bad the problem is. If it’s one or two mice, you can get treated quarterly and that should get rid of them. If you’re dealing with an infestation, pest control technicians will need to come out weekly until the mice are gone, which can be pretty costly. The longer you wait to get the infestation handled, the more expensive it will become.

How do exterminators get rid of mice?
At Vinx, we often get asked how do our exterminators get rid of the mice in your home. The answer is clear. We use bait and traps. The bait we use is always used away from children and pets, and since most mice problems in Dallas and Fort Worth occur in the attic, there isn’t any worry about children and pets getting it.
The bait that the mice eat makes them thirsty. They go outside of your home and look for a water source to satisfy their thirst. Once away from the home, they die and don’t come back inside. However, we also set traps inside the attic so that any mice that don’t get the bait can be handled. We use traps most often when there is an extreme infestation, and our service will include us coming back out to grab the traps for you a week later. You won’t have to deal with the mice at all!
Finally, we do a rodent exclusion service. This is where we go through and seal up any holes around your home that mice are using to get into the house. Since they can fit through a hole the size of a pencil, it’s important to seal them up!
How do exterminators get rid of mice in the walls?
Do you have mice in the walls? Our exterminators have experience with mice in the walls, and we have the perfect way to get them out. If there are mice in your walls, it requires a special trap. The trap will be filled with bait so that they want to get into it. The trap is a box that will be set against the wall, and we’ll drill a small hole where the mice can access the trap.
Once the mice are in the trap, they can’t get out. This gets mice out of the walls and ensures that no mice die within your walls, which would cause a pretty large problem.
