Preventing house mice from invading your home is crucial. Not only is a rodent infestation a nuisance, it can also lead to several serious health risks. House mice can carry bacteria, spread diseases and contaminate food. Particles of their feces and urine can even become airborne, further spreading disease and potentially triggering asthma or allergy symptoms. Because house mice defecate so often, their droppings can accumulate quickly in hidden spaces within your home, like the interior of walls and attic spaces.
House mice can also unknowingly bring in other pests with them, including fleas, ticks, mites, and lice, which can also carry bacteria and diseases into your home.
