Mice try to avoid people and can slip through holes the size of a dime. So, to detect an infestation early on, look out for these signs:

  • Droppings that are rod-shaped
  • Scratch or chew marks around walls and furniture
  • Noises coming from inside the walls

If you spot any of these signs, it's best to get rodent control assistance right away because mice reproduce at rapid rates.

Along with being hard to deter and detect, mice are also dangerous. While not all infestations will make you sick, there is always a risk. Mice can transmit various diseases, including hantavirus and salmonella, and they don't have to bite you to spread sickness. Their droppings, urine, and fur can lead to ailments and also trigger allergic reactions and asthma attacks.
Along with being dangerous to human health, mice are also destructive. They chew through materials such as wood, drywall, plastic, pipes, and wires, so you could spend a lot of money fixing this destruction.
