Common Problems Mice Cause
November 20, 2017
Most people would admit that seeing a mouse dart in front of them makes them jump out of their shoes. Mice are just one of those creatures that give us goosebumps, and we definitely don’t want to see one scurrying around in our gardens and storage sheds. As if that isn’t bad enough, it’s even scarier when a mouse is seen inside our home. Mice are an unwelcome and unpleasant surprise that can truly frighten us. Why are we so afraid of mice? They’re just small rodents, right? Our fear of mice is completely justified—though they are small they can cause big problems.
For starters, mice are natural chewers. They can chew through wires, which is a fire hazard, as well as chewing through just about anything else. This alone impacts the safety of your family and could potentially cost you a lot in repairs. House mice can bring diseases, ticks, and parasites into your home. They can also contaminate food and surfaces with their feces and urine. All of these are health hazards for you, your family, and even pets. One of the big problems with mice is that they breed quickly. One pair of mice can quickly turn into a full-blown infestation. The more mice there are, the harder it is to get rid of them. By the time you catch a couple of the mice in traps, they will most likely have multiplied before you even know it! The use of poison seems like a good idea at first but without a professional’s guidance most mice will crawl inside your walls and die there. The odor itself will have you wishing you had called a pest control company for help. Using poison also poses dangers to children and pets in the home if they get into it by mistake. All of these reasons show just how important it is to call a trusted pest control company at the first sight of a mouse.
