Often overlooked and labeled as not a threat due to their smaller size when compared to rats, mice actually carry with them significant dangers and concerns. While they may look cute and cuddly, mice tend to find their way onto private properties and cause damage, leaving you to pay for repairs.
Mice will often find a nice safe spot in your home, whether it be your attic or in your walls, and nest there. Once they declare their area, they quickly become familiar with it and will catch on to any changes such as traps or poisons laid out to catch them. This aversion to new elements in their environment makes them very difficult to trap. When facing mice in your home, your best option is to call on the experts at Critter Control® of Tallahassee for effective removal.
Unfortunately for you as a homeowner, your home is the perfect oasis for a mouse seeking shelter. Food and water can be found in abundance for them, and now they have shelter from predators. Once they have all of that, their main goal is reproducing. Mice reproduce at an alarming rate, which means that a few mice in your home can quickly become a full-on infestation in a short time. They are also very elusive as their small bodies allow them to squeeze through openings as narrow as ¼”.
Mice are also known for carrying illnesses, which can be passed on to humans, and in some cases, a bite is not necessary. If a mouse were to get into your food supply after walking through its own urine, its paws could track germs with it. If your food containers show signs of being clawed or bitten open, they should not be trusted, as they might have been contaminated.
