Professional Eccles Mice Control

House mouse, Mus domesticusWhere there are humans chances are there are mice. Human settlements provide food, water and shelter to these rodents. They, in turn, spread destruction and disease, profiting from human labour and ingenuity, whilst offering nothing in return.

Mice and humans often live side-by-side but the relationship is a competitive one, rather than a cooperative one. The mouse must hide from the human, an unwelcome guest in its home, in order to foul and physically damage the living or working space, whilst stealing from under its nose.

When facing mice infestation, the sensible option is to remove the vermin from the human inhabitation via professional mouse control treatment.

Due to the rapid breeding rate of mice, with a capacity for 5-10 litters a year with anywhere between 3 to 14 young in each litter, a mice infestation should be dealt with by professional Eccles mice control treatment as soon as it becomes apparent.

Mice are disease carriers

One of the most compelling arguments for Eccles mice control is that these rodents are vectors for zoonotic infection. Zoonoses, or pathogens transmittable from animals to humans, can be spread by their bodily secretions, particularly their urine and faeces, through the air, or by the parasites that live on or in them. To be parasitized by the fleas, lice, mites, ticks and worms that mice host would be grievance enough, to fall victim to the diseases they transmit would double the insult. Mouse-borne zoonoses include:

  • Rat-bite fever, caused by Streptobacillus bacteria, can be transmitted to humans from mice as well as rats. A human does not need to be bitten or scratched to contract it, as the disease is spread through urine, faeces and other bodily secretions.
  • Rickettsialpox, a multi-symptomatic illness manifesting most noticeably as skin lesions, is caused by infection of Rickettsia bacteria which is spread from mice to humans by mites.
  • Lyme Disease, caused by Borrelia bacteria, is spread to humans by ticks that can live on mice.

Knowing the diseases mice can transmit to humans, mouse removal should be left to professional Eccles mice control technicians. Amateurs attempting to resolve the problem risk infection from mouse-borne pathogens. Mouse control professionals have the ability to get rid of mice with minimum risk to themselves.

Physical and economic damage caused by mice

Mouse NestMice are a major cause of economic damage in the agricultural sector, due to their feeding on food crops in the field. Mice will eat food in storage, too, and contaminate it with their disease-ridden urine and faeces. Water supplies are also fouled by mouse excretions. Professional mouse control is crucial for the preservation of food and water for human consumption.

Damage can be done to buildings by mice infestation. Mice will gnaw at water pipes and electrical wiring, causing water leaks and fire hazards, and their burrowing can damage walls and flooring. Mice infestation should be professionally controlled to prevent further damage to property.
