Detect Mice Infestation Fast! If only real life mice are as adorable as Stuart Little, as funny as Jerry, or as talented as Remy in Ratatouille, then no one would have a problem coexisting with them at home. Unfortunately, mice — outside the clever and ingenious world of animation — are pesky, disgusting creatures that gnaw on furniture, foul up areas with urine and droppings, and contaminate food. Mice are physically small but their presence at home carries a risk that’s a gazillion times larger than their size. These unwelcomed boarders can put your family’s health at risk. That’s why it’s very important to shut them out of your home at any cost. To help you detect mice infestation, here’s a list of signs you should watch out for: Rice-shaped black-colored droppings. Mouse droppings look like fat but nasty black candy sprinkles. They are typically found under the sink, along walls, and dark and cool areas like cupboards and drawers. Most of the time, these droppings are accompanied by a foul greasy stain that reeks of ammonia. Can you guess what that is? Yes, it’s urine and it’s full of unseen bacteria and possibly, viruses. Gnaw-marks. Mice don’t like their teeth long. So what do they do to keep it trimmed down? They chomp on practically anything they can clamp their teeth on. Inspect your wooden furniture, cereal boxes, cables, plastic items, and the like. Nests. Just like birds, mice love to lay down on nests, too. But instead of twigs and dried leaves, mice shred soft materials like cloth and paper to create a home not only for themselves but for their young. Mice are quite prolific in nature. So, don’t be surprised if you find squeaking mouse babies poking through the strips. Go around your house and look for these signs. If you find even just one out three, do something immediately. Control the problem before it gets out of hand. Your family could fall prey to salmonellosis, leptospirosis, lymphocytic choriomeningitis (LCM), and hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS) — diseases caused by mice infestation.
