A mice infestation is often taken too lightly, thanks to the size of the creatures involved. However, in spite of the small size of these rodents, mice can cause quite a lot of damage, to your property as well as on the health front.
As far as damage to your property is concerned, mice can chew up just about anything you can think of, from wires that are an integral part of the electrical circuit of your house to plastic hoses. In their search for food, they chew through walls and cabinets and when they set up nests, create quite a lot of damage in and around the area.
On the health front too, mice have the potential to cause a range of diseases. They carry several viruses and bacteria that are harmful to humans and pets and even their feces and urine could be extremely dangerous for our families.
Mice urine is also known to trigger serious allergies in some humans and even their feces could be the cause for the same.
Moreover, their ability to hide often means that you could catch a serious disease without even realizing that you have contracted it from mice!
For these reasons and more, you should always take a mice infestation very seriously, and if you’re sure you’re up against a serious invasion, the best solution to the problem is hiring the services of a professional mice exterminator. An expert will thoroughly investigate the extent of the problem and then provide a solution that is comprehensive in every way.
