Talking Mice: Introduction
Today, we’re going to start talking about one of the most common home pests that you’ll see, with new infestations coming every winter: the common house mouse.
Everybody knows what the little, furry rodent looks like, and the chances are good that at some point in your life, you’ve seen one running around inside a house. Just like any other rodent, they’re looking for three things to survive: shelter, food, and safety, and your home typically provides all three. Given their size, stealth, and ability to squeeze into places you can’t see, mice in your home might go undetected for a long time before betraying their presence via droppings or a mistake in exposing itself when you’re around.
Mice cause several problems in your home, given their prodigious breeding rates, affinity for many of the same foods that humans enjoy and keep stocked, and the diseases they can spread to their human roommates through their droppings and urine. While they might not seem like a large problem, left unchecked, a mice infestation, as with any other rodent problem, can cause issues in your home and for the health of your family.
Next week, we’ll be posting a three-part series going into more detail on what kinds of issues mice can cause and how you can better protect yourself, your home, and your family from them.
