Though some have been domesticated, mice can be dangerous and destructive pests. They carry viruses, and bacteria and eat through everything in sight from cardboard boxes to your a/c ducts. As they wander through your house and pantry, they can contaminate your food and dishes through their saliva, droppings, and urine; so be sure to throw away any food whose container looks chewed through or open. Their pools of excrement, mostly left near nests, causes a terrible, musty odor that can spread throughout your house.
What Attracts Mice To Your House
Human homes offer a protection above nothing else a mouse can find. As long as they stay out of sight, there is no danger for them; your pantry is loaded with goodies for them to get into, and there are tons of materials to chew in the attic or basement, leaving them with nothing to worry about aside from reproducing.
Did you know a mouse can give birth to up to two thousand babies over the course of a year? That’s a heck of a lot of mouths to feed. If you notice mice running around during the daytime, you’ve probably already got an infestation on your hands. Mice are typically nocturnal but, when there is less space and more food competition, they will be active during the daytime.
