Professional Alsager Mice Control
Mice may look harmless, but their presence in a building poses a serious risk to property and human health. Mice cause widespread destruction and spread disease wherever they tread, and for these reasons, their presence should not be ignored. They can enter a building through a 1/4 inch gap, and once they get inside, they will likely return. Once a habitation is known to mice, they may become permanent residents.
A mouse infestation can happen at any time of the year but is most likely during winter when mice struggle to survive the harsh conditions outside. Human residences are also appealing to mice because of the stockpiles of food available, compared to the meagre foraging opportunities and stiff competition they face outdoors. Although mice do not require much water, they may get their fill from condensation buildup on indoor surfaces.
Although the lifespan of wild mice is short, between 1-3 years or less, they can reproduce many times in their brief lives. Litters of 6-8 young 5-10 times a year are not uncommon, and a mice infestation can reach chronic levels in a matter of months if left unchecked. Professional Alsager mice control should occur as soon as a mice infestation becomes apparent to save trouble down the line.
Destruction and disease caused by mice
Mice do not like to travel and will likely establish their nests near sources of food and water. Building a nest by a kitchen or pantry means having all the provisions needed right on their doorstep. The consequences of mice in food storage and food preparation areas (and the wider building in general) can be devastating to humans due to destructive behaviour and contamination.
The main cause of mouse-related destruction indoors is gnawing, partly due to a rodent's need to wear down its incisor teeth that continuously grow. Abrasive substances such as brick, cement, wood and stone are ideal for this. When mice gnaw electrical wires, it poses a threat of electrical fire and electrocution. Gnawed gas pipes may result in gas leaks, making a building inhospitable to human life and turning it into a time bomb.
The most common route of infection for zoonoses transmitted from mice to humans are parasites, urine and faeces. Humans can catch fleas, lice, mites, protozoa, roundworms and tapeworms from mice. Humans contract murine typhus and Rickettsialpox from mouse fleas and mites. Salmonellosis, Leptospirosis and Streptobacillosis (Rat-bite fever) are three diseases spread by mouse urine or droppings.
The destruction and disease caused by mice call for professional Alsager mice control. Experts in mouse control can perform successful Alsager mice control treatments and prevent their return. Furthermore, our Alsager mice control technicians can conduct mouse removal procedures without becoming infected by zoonoses. Professional mouse control will eliminate mice from a property so that non-professionals, with great risk to themselves, do not have to perform ineffective do-it-yourself mice control techniques.
