Health Risks of Having a Mouse in Your House [INFOGRAPHIC]

Mice may sometimes look furry and cute, but when it comes to your health, they’re anything but friendly. Mice infestations mean major health risks to your family. Mice themselves can transmit diseases via feces, urine, and bodily fluids, while the fleas and ticks they carry on their bodies can also carry diseases that may be transmitted to humans. If you have a mouse in the house, your family is at risk for diseases like salmonella, Lyme disease, Hantavirus, and even plague. That is why it is so important to call an exterminator for mice removal after an infestation and to take steps to mouse-proof your house. In this infographic, Mice Mob Exterminators, a mice exterminator serving Chicago, explains the health risks associated with mice. Please share this information so people everywhere know the importance of reacting quickly when they see mice at home.
