Mice Will Try To Seek Shelter From The Cold In Your Indianapolis Home

No matter how prepared you are for the pest invasion this winter, these tiny rodents might catch you off guard. Mice are some of the most conniving critters in a backyard’s ecosystem. With an extremely flexible bone structure, they are able to squeeze through any opening their snout can fit into, making them difficult to keep out. Once they’ve found a place to settle down for the cold weather (like inside your attic) you can expect they’ll be there for a long time. And problems with mice only get worse as the winter continues.  

A Mice Malady 

Rodents are dangerous pests to have around due to their infectious potential. Mice have been known to spread over thirty-five serious diseases, some of them deadly.

  • Hantavirus
  • Typhoid 
  • Leptospirosis 
  • Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis
  • Salmonellosis

Cleaning up mouse urine and fecal matter can be hazardous to your health, especially if your property has experienced a recent infestation. Most mice-borne illnesses are transferred through moisture droplets in the air that are created when excrement is disturbed. Touching mouse urine or droppings, nesting materials, or the mice themselves can transfer serious illness. Virus strains can also be spread by mice crawling across surfaces and materials that are frequently used. Kitchens, bathrooms, and improperly stored food items are all at risk. 

Removing a mouse by hand is never recommended. A mouse bite has the potential to spread all of the above illnesses, as well as deadly infections. For the removal of mice from your property, call a reputable rodent control company.
