Talking Mice: Disease
House mice are too-often dismissed as pests because of their small size. Homeowners wonder what trouble they can really be since they keep to themselves and are so small. The answer to the question of why a mouse infestation should be eliminated as quickly as possible, however, is disease.
Yes, the common house mouse can bring a variety of diseases along with it, each of which can cause tremendous problems for you and your family. The diseases can come directly from the mouse via exposure to its waste, from the mites that all-too often come along with a mouse infestation, and from a third party in the form of house pets that come in contact with the mice.
