A house mouse is capable of walking on a thin wire and squeezing itself through a hole the size of a quarter. With this in mind, it becomes obvious why just a single mouse in your home can quickly turn into a real hazard. When you add to that the fact that mice breed incredibly fast, the only conclusion is that even a single mouse is a signal to call a mice removal company for your Milwaukee home.
Milwaukee Mice Control: How Do I Know I Have A Mouse Infestation?
There are countless different ways a mice infestation may occur in your home or on your property. Among the most common signals of a mouse infestation are:
- Small chew marks on food packages like cardboard cereal packages
- Hearing noises in the walls or above the ceiling at night when you are sleeping
- Seeing a mouse scurrying around your home
- Noticing mice droppings in a cupboard or on the kitchen counter
Why Should Even A Single Mouse Be Considered A Problem?
Many homeowners commonly believe that having just one or two mice running around their home is not an urgent problem. However, that is wrong. Why? Because even a single mouse in a home can typically leave up to 9,000 droppings all over your home every year. Add to that the fact that a female mouse can have up to 10 litters each year, each of which can contain up to 6 mice. As a result, you could be looking at an explosion of the mice infestation in your home to a number of 50 or 60 mice in a short period of time. That is why it is important to act immediately.
Surely Mice Can’t Be That Dangerous?
Yes, they can. Mice are actually carriers of viruses, parasites, diseases, and bacteria. A mice infestation in your home means the critters are leaving behind patches of their urine in addition to their droppings. If you breathe in the dust polluted with house mouse urine or droppings, you can easily contract LCM (lymphocytic choriomeningitis). It is a viral infection that has the symptoms of a number of other illnesses, including nausea, headaches, a lack of appetite and fever. LCM can result in neurological disease if left untreated. Keep this in mind when thinking about whether or not you need professional mice removal services for your Milwaukee home.
