Finding a dead mouse can be unsettling. You may not have even known you had a mouse around. Should you find a dead mouse, there are a few things to make sure you do. Above and beyond everything else, make sure you dispose of it safely. The last thing you want is that dead mouse attracting anything else to your home.
Do not touch the mouse with your bare hands. Put on some rubber gloves. If there are children or pets around who may try to pick up the dead mouse, keep them away from it until you have disposed of it properly. Use a folded up piece of paper towel to cover your hand and arm as you use another hand to scoop up the rodent as carefully as you can with an instrument such as tongs.
Place the dead rodent into a plastic bag without touching it directly with your fingers or hand. Mice carry diseases, so you want to avoid touching it at all costs. Choose a location for its final resting place outside where no one will be going to play around, such as a garbage can.
One thing you have to keep in mind is very rarely will you find a solitary mouse. In most instances, mice will live in families of 4, 8, 10, sometimes dozens or more. If you found a single dead mouse, chances are, you likely have more somewhere in or around your home. What you need to do is call in a professional exterminator who can take the time to go through your whole home looking for signs of an infestation. If one is found, you want them to remove the rodents quickly and easily. Turn to the exterminators of Mice Mob Exterminators if you want to be sure your mouse problem is taken care of.
