Professional Chadderton Mice Control

Mouse NestMouse infestation of human habitations has been an unwelcome feature of life in settlements for some millennia, the house mouse (Mus musculus) being the main culprit.

Mice are prolific breeders, with the females capable of birthing 5-10 litters a year and each litter containing an average of 6-8 young. The high reproductive rate of these rodents means that mice infestation will quickly get out of control as their numbers multiply. For this reason, mouse control should take priority earlier on to save time, effort and resources in the long run.

Damage caused by mice

Your house is an ideal place for mice to make themselves at home and once they are inside they can damage its structural integrity, lowering property values and costing you a fortune in repairs. Mice infestation is also a cause of economic damage in the agricultural industry and a nightmare for anyone in the catering industry.

  • Mice raid crops in the field and in storage, causing economic damage. They will find their way into kitchens and pantries, looking for food and drink. When mice come into contact with food and water, they contaminate it with their bodily secretions, making it unusable.
  • Mice gnaw at wires, stripping them of their insulation. Exposed wires pose an electrical hazard and fire risk.

Chadderton mice control is essential to counter the damage caused to property, food crops and supplies, as well as the hygiene risk, loss of business and reputation caused to caterers by mice infestation.

Diseases mice spread include:

  • Leptospirosis, an infection by Leptospira bacteria, can cause Weil's Disease, Severe Pulmonary Hemorrhage Syndrome and meningitis.
  • Lymphocytic choriomeningitis, a form of viral meningitis.
  • Murine typhus, an infection by Rickettsia typhi bacteria, is caused by bites from fleas living on mice
  • Tularemia, a particularly virulent disease, resulting from infection by Francisella tularensis bacteria.

The threat of illness caused by mouse infestation makes Chadderton mice control a matter of importance, to protect the health of everyone.
