If you’ve noticed rodents like mice (or worse rats) crawling and scuttling about your home or business, whether at night or during the day, you should call a professional mice exterminator as soon as possible. Don’t give those mice time to reproduce and turn into your own personal plague! Mice and rats may appear to be small, harmless animals, but they can all too quickly become a health hazard.
Mice: Tiny Creatures, Big Trouble
They’re in your attic and in your walls, happily munching away on just about anything they can find, including wood, glue, and insulation. They may even work their way inside, where they’ll turn your furniture into nests and help themselves to anything they can find in your pantry.
They may even get inside of your appliances, where they will sometimes electrocute themselves on your control panel. That kills the mouse, but it also kills your appliance.
Mice will eat 15% of their body weight every day. That means they’re leaving lots and lots of unsanitary droppings and urine all over your home. Eventually your home is going to take on an unpleasant smell, both from their waste and from a mice or two that will inevitably die in your walls, attic, or some other hidden area in your home.
Their droppings aren’t the only source of concern, since their saliva is a potent disease-carrier as well. Mice carry salmonella, Lyme disease, meningitis, ringworm, and other pathogens.
You can get a cat, of course, but mice reproduce so fast they’ve been known to overwhelm cats too, which is the same problem you’ll find if you try to reach for DIY mouse traps: if you have a serious infestation, mouse traps just aren’t going to be up to the challenge. Not when mice have 2-7 babies every 30 days!
In six weeks, those babies are old enough to have babies of their own.
Mice are also smart (remember they’re the animal scientists keep running around in mazes). That means sooner or later they’ll know exactly how to avoid your traps. They’ve been known to use traps and other items used in home remedies as food and as nesting material.
