Diseases Mice Carry

Diseases mice carry often have long-term effects on people and may even be fatal. Residents should be aware of the bacterial and viral infections linked to rodents, such as:

Leptospirosis – This illness spreads through food or water tainted with mouse feces.

Plague – While rare, a bite from a flea or rodent infected with the bacteria can transfer plague.

Salmonellosis – The pests spread this mouse disease through contact with food and kitchen surfaces. Their urine and saliva carry the pathogen that causes infection.

Hantavirus – Deer mice are the main vectors of this illness. Once inhaled, airborne particles from their feces transmit the virus.

In addition, mice can spread diseases associated with the ticks, fleas, and other parasites they carry. Residents in mouse-infested homes may be at risk for tick fevers and Lyme disease.

Getting Rid of Your Rodent Problem

Poison for Mice & Rodent Control

One of the myths surrounding rodent control is that poison is an effective means of extermination. Many people believe that rodents eat the poison and then become thirsty. They then search for water outside and die outside of your home. This is not true, however.

Poison is not an effective way to kill rats. Some rats will die, and some will not. It also presents a huge risk to children and household pets due to the poison entering their systems. Rodents who do die from the poison typically endure a very slow and painful death- it’s an inhumane way to go. Those carcasses will remain in your attic or walls or wherever they have nested until removed. To prevent reinfestation, pheromones present in rodent feces also must be eliminated along identifying and sealing off entryways.

Additionally, rodents are not known for being adventurous creatures. They will rarely venture more than 40 feet from their nest, and they do not go outside in search of water. If they have taken up residence in your home, they likely already have a water source nearby.

Do You Have A Rodent Problem

Signs of a Rodent Problem

1. Chew Marks
Rodents are known to gnaw on everything from baseboards to wires. These small rodents can leave chew marks on wood, cardboard, and other materials.

2. Musky Odor
Like all animals, rodents leave behind a distinct smell. Rodent infestations are normally accompanied by a musky odor that gets stronger as the infestation worsens.

3. Rotting Odor
Dead rodents can leave a strong odor that is hazardous to your health. We advise calling a licensed professional to locate and remove any dead rodents you find inside your home.

4. Odd Pet Behavior
Pets tend to act unusual when they hear or smell rodents in the house. If your dog or cat is scratching at the walls or acting unusually in a certain area of the home, it could be a sign of rodents. Make a note of where they exhibit this behavior look for other signs and contact a licensed professional.

5. Droppings
Rodent droppings are amongst the most common and easily seen signs of an infestation. Mice droppings are usually no more than ¼” in length and are small, dark brown, with pointed ends. Rat droppings can be anywhere between ¾” and ½” long and vary in shape depending on the type of rat. New droppings are shiny and putty-like in texture, while old ones are hard and crumbly. Varying feces sizes indicate that juveniles and adults are present, and lots of droppings may be an indication of a large infestation.

6. Tracks
Tiny rodent footprints are another obvious sign. Check for these where dust collects easily, along baseboards, in corners and near sources of food.

7. Holes
Both rats and mice are avid chewers, and their teeth never stop growing. Gnawed mouse holes are smaller with clear-cut edges, approximately the size of a dime. Gnawed rat holes are larger with rough torn edges, approximately the size of a quarter.

8. Allergies
The fur and droppings of rodents can cause allergic reactions in some people. 97% of allergists believe a pest-free home can help combat regular allergy problems.

9. Smear Marks
The oils on rodents’ fur can create grease marks, or streaks, on surfaces when moving. Look for greasy marks like this when inspecting for rodents.

10. Noise
Scampering, gnawing noises, and scratching and squeaking could all be signs that a rodent, or rodents, are in your home or business. Noises are often heard in attics, ceilings, and inside walls.

Whether you have an active infestation or believe you may be vulnerable to one, don’t hesitate to give us a call! Green Valley Wildlife Solutions offers poison-free rodent control methods and same-day or next-day appointments!
