You don’t have to come into contact or even see mice around your home to catch diseases from them. The most common way they spread their germs is by contaminating the air around them with their urine and feces. They can also track their urine throughout your home with their paws. Some of the diseases they carry and can transmit to humans and even pets include:
- Lymphocytic Chorio-Meningitis
- Lassa fever
- And more
Damage to Your Home
Health problems aren’t the only thing you need to worry about when it comes to mice in your home. Mice love to chew on rough things since their sharp teeth are always growing. Things like your insulation, wires, walls, wooden posts, and personal belongings are at risk for being ruined if mice live in your home. When your attic insulation is not doing its job, your house does not stay warm in the cooler months or cool in the warmer months, and will drive up your electric bills. Additionally, any frayed wires they may have chewed are a severe fire hazard.
