Dangers of a Mouse Infestation in your Home
Mice, like rats, like to burrow and store food. In their conquest to make your home theirs, they make quite the mess for you. Mice carry with them associated pathogens that can be introduced to the living area of a home through feces and urine, or physical contact with the mice themselves. When they are out exploring your home, they are also tracking around the germs and bacteria with them. Studies have shown that you share 40% to 60% of your air with your crawl space where these mice can live. This opens you up to dangerous airborne pathogens exuding from their nests.
