Pest of the Season
In addition to mice being the pest of the season, below are some staggering facts about mice.
The most common winter invader is the house mouse. The house mouse looks for a warm, cozy place to spend the winter. Mice enter your home, business or building by squeezing through spaces as small as the diameter of a pencil. Once inside the home, they become destructive. They damage and destroy your home by chewing wires, which can cause fire along with eating and contaminating your food spreading disease. Mice carry over 20 different pathogens of human disease such as a salmonella, Hantavirus and asthma to name a few.
Mice usually live only for a year, but if all their offspring were to survive and reproduce at a similar rate, onepair of house mice have the potential to produce more than 500 young within a year! It is wise, to begin control earlier than later. Another shattering figure is the amount of droppings a mouse will produce. In one year, one mouse produces up to 18,000 droppings along with depositing hundreds of micro droplets of urine to mark its trails.
