Why Mice and Rats must be removed from your home or office.
Did you know that Mice and Rats carry and transmit dozens of diseases to humans? Mice are the primary carriers of the ticks that have the Lyme Disease bacterium. Mouse saliva, urine and feces can also cause several health problems in humans. The House Mice can also cause fires by chewing on electrical wires. The House Mouse is most commonly found on Long Island, NY, along with other rodents like the Norway Rat, Deer Mouse and White-footed Mouse. Rodents, like Mice and Rats nest in wood piles, holes in the ground, your garage or shed or stored yard equipment. They love warm weather. A Mouse or Rat can squeeze through holes as tiny as a quarter to enter your home looking for food and water.
Here are some signs of Rodent activity in your home:
Are you seeing droppings and urine stains? The dropping of a Mouse looks like small pellets with pointed ends and the dropping of a Rat is larger in size with blunt ends. The smell of urine has a noticeable odor and stains will be noticeable on wood floors.
Do you see teeth marks or shavings around your home? Mice need to chew frequently to keep their teeth trimmed down. You may see tooth marks or shavings on or near your baseboards, moldings, cabinets or around pipes.
How about tracks from these rodents? Mice have bad eyesight, so they tend to stay along walls during travel. Mice usually stay on one memorized path to their food and nest. You may see footprints, or a worn path, or a dirt tail along your walls.
Or even possibly a Rodent nest? Inside your home, mice like quiet places usually in walls, ceilings, attics, garages and basements. Outside they like to nest in vegetation, leaves, under piled bricks, or wood. Their nests can be made of shredded fabrics or other fine material, or leaves. You may often find droppings and seeds near the nest.
