As if mice invasions weren’t already bad enough, most people never even consider everything else that goes with them. Moreover, mice are dirty little creatures that multiply at an alarming rate. Having even just a few in your house one day can turn into hundreds of them in a matter of weeks. With each increasing generation come more problems and issues. Here are a few of the other unpleasant things that accompany these rodents:

When they get wind of the hordes of mice residing in your property, you could end up battling a pest war on multiple fronts.
Something else to consider when you are facing down a mice infestation is the effects they will have on the house (or office) itself. Mice gnaw and chew through everything.
