Dangers of mice infestation
Similar to rats, it is highly likely that mice will be carrying various diseases that can easily be transmitted to humans. These diseases are transmitted through their faeces or urine and thus can go undetected until its too late.
Through their gnawing activities mice can also cause structural damage to your home, and also cause fire hazards through chewing on electrical wiring. This can be expensive to repair and be a risk to your kids or family.
How to know if you have a mice infestation
Mice often stay hidden during the day and thus it is most common to identify an infestation through signs of mice activity. Common signs of mice infestations include:
Droppings (3-8mm long)
Marks of grease
Little piles of urine
