If you don’t recognize the danger that mice can represent to you and your family, visit the Center For Disease Control website. House mice (mus musculus) can carry plague, murine typhus, leptospirosis, and rickettsial pox, Include the deer mouse, and you can add the hanta virus. There is a term, commensal, which describes the fact that mice live at peoples’ expense.
The small bones of a house mouse means that it can enter your home through a hole the size of a dime. Other favorite entrance points are your pipes and electrical wiring. They are social creatures, and do not live a solitary life. That means pairs of mice that can breed every 3 weeks, and before you know it they have taken over your house. Remember when you spotted that mouse scurrying over your kitchen counters? The diseases that they carry, plus the addition of the feces and urine they are depositing with each step, means you need to disinfect your food preparation surfaces every time that you feed your family.
Homeowners are not the only ones who need constant diligence from mice, as their presence in a restaurant can lead to the department of health shutting the doors for any commercial business that handles food and requires a clean bill of health.
Regardless of whether you are a homeowner or a commercial business, immediate care is required when mice are present. A frequent pest found in Modesto, Manteca, Oakdale,, Turlock, and San Joaquin and Stanislaus counties, mice have plagued homeowners of the Central Valley since settlers began arriving.
Domesticated mice are found both indoors and outdoors, as well as in garages, basements and open fields. The feces that accompanies their infestations can cause asthma, which can be debilitating. It is far better to recognize the signs early, such as the droppings left where they are found. Immediate treatment followed by a diligent maintenance program is your best bet to get rid of this unwanted pest.
Mice are famous for a short gestational period, reproducing a litter every three weeks. Start with one breeding pair, and your home cam be overrun by the end of the year. With the average litter size of 5 babies, you can see why it is important to curtail them as soon as possible. The babies will stay with their mother while scouts scurry around looking for food. That leads them to your kitchen, and this is one place you need to keep clean for the health of your family. Only quick treatment and preventive maintenance can stop them from overrunning your home.
