Professional Hyde Mice Control

Mouse NestOne of the worst domestic pests is the house mouse (Mus musculus) which is commensal with humans. It is better adapted to infiltrating human residences and living off their foraging efforts than it is inhabiting the wild, competing with rival species for survival. Mouse infestation has been a problem in human settlements for millennia and has made Hyde mice control a necessity.

The nuisance of mice

When mice find their way into a property, they can cause significant damage. A mouse's teeth continue to grow throughout its life, making it necessary to gnaw on things in order to wear them down. Stone, cement, brick, and wood are attractive substances for mice to chew on. Electrical wires, too, seem irresistible to mice and the resulting damage creates fire hazards, causes electrical appliances to fail and poses the risk of electric shock and electrocution. Mice also gnaw on water pipes and if they manage to chew their way through it can cause leaks. Mending or replacing damaged wiring and piping is time-consuming and expensive, repairing fire and water damage even more so.

Zoonoses, diseases that can be spread between species, are another danger posed by mice infestation. The main route of infection from mice to humans is urine and feces, which mice spread wherever they go due to incontinence. Leptospirosis, which can lead to Weil's disease, is one of the better-known zoonoses spread in this manner. Mice in the kitchen or pantry will contaminate any food they come into contact with and will foul drinking water. Numerous parasites live on or inside mice, such as fleas, lice, ticks, mites, flatworms, and roundworms, which can be transferred to humans. This cross-parasitism can result in zoonoses being spread from host to host. Murine typhus, for example, is transmitted from mice to humans by fleas.

Knowing the damage mice infestation can cause, it is worthwhile calling on professional Hyde mice control services to get rid of mice for you.
