If Mice Are Not Bothering Us, Can They Stay?

Mice are adorable and cute, but you should keep them as far away from your home as possible. They are destructive and dangerous. Unlike other animals that are dangerous for their poisonous stings or bite, mice pose a health risk to your loved ones. They also make the house smelly and dirty. Here are some strong reasons why you should keep mice at bay.

They Cause/Transmit Diseases

Mice like to mark their territory by defecating and urinating, providing an excellent breeding ground for bacteria and other disease-causing vectors. And since they like feeding on human foods, they’ll easily transmit bacteria to your food.

Mice also transmit viruses like Hantavirus, which are lethal to humans. They also spread diseases such as listeria, Leptospirosis, and salmonella through their nesting materials, saliva, droppings, and urine. That’s why you need to eliminate them from your home. Call for professional help rather than relying on DIY methods.

They Are Destructive

Mice can chew through almost anything except for metals. In fact, one way of knowing your home is mice-infested is by discovering chewed items, including furniture, electric cables, plastic items, shoes, books, etc. This destructive habit can be costly for you.

When building new nests, they have to chew their way through. To make matters worse, these animals multiply very fast. One mouse can produce between 5-10 litters every year. The young ones grow very first and start breeding. Meaning in one year, you’ll have hundreds if not thousands of mice in your home if you don’t control them.

They Will Eat Your Food

Having mice in your home means you’ll increase your food budget. Any food that you leave exposed at night will never reach the following day. Sometimes they can chew or tear their way to your stored foodstuff and eat them. For example, they can tear sacks in your store to reach your grains.

It’s quite evident that you need not keep mice in your home, no matter how cute they look. In fact, mice are associated with dirty and filthy places.
