Professional Billinge Mice Control

Mice are significant pests to humans and the house mouse (Mus musculus) is the most common species to infest habitations. Capable of accessing openings as narrow as a pencil, once mice get inside a building they are likely to stay, causing destruction and spreading disease. Mice in a building need to be removed with professional Billinge mice control treatment and prevented from returning. Disinfection of affected areas should follow successful mouse removal.

Reproduction

The life of mice is fleeting, seldom exceeding 3 years, yet they are prolific breeders. In the wild, their life expectancy is less than a year but they can reproduce several times in a matter of months. Females are able to birth litters of 3-14 offspring, averaging at 6-8 young, 5-10 times a year. A solitary mother reproducing at maximum capacity and living beyond the average life expectancy could leave as many as 420 progenies in her wake.

The difficulty of Billinge mice controls increases with the mice population in terms of time and resources. Professional Billinge mice control should take priority as soon as the presence of these pests appears.

Destruction

House mouse, Mus domesticusRodent incisors continuously erupt and mice are no exception, necessitating the wearing down of ever-growing teeth on abrasive materials. Brick, cement, stone and wood get gnawed by mice, as do gas lines, water pipes and electrical cables. Damaged plumbing causes water damage, gnawed gas pipes produce dangerous gas leaks, nibbled wiring induces electrical appliance failure, presents fire hazards and carries the risk of electrocution.

Professional Billinge mice control treatment is essential to the maintenance of the property in a decent state of repair. The fatal hazards of a mice infestation make professional mice control a matter of life and death.

Contamination

The presence of mice on a property poses a severe contamination risk to anything these rodents come into contact with. Whether in bedrooms, libraries, living rooms or studies, dining rooms, kitchens or pantries, the further a mouse infestation spreads, the wider the range of contamination. Affected materials may need to be discarded. Contamination is caused mainly by the bodily secretions of mice, such as mucous, faeces and urine.

Some of these pathogens can infect humans if the germ is absorbed through skin lacerations or if food and water are contaminated. Diseases spread to humans via mouse secretions include Hantavirus, Leptospirosis, Salmonellosis, Streptobacillus and Lymphocytic choriomeningitis.

Both the roundworm Ascaris lumbricoides and the rodent tapeworm Hymenolepis microstoma are capable of parasitising mice and humans, as is the parasitic protozoan Toxoplasma gondii which causes Toxoplasmosis. Fleas, lice, mites and ticks on mice may shift host to humans, transmitting pathogenic microorganisms in the process. Murine typhus and Rickettsialpox are examples of diseases carried from mice to humans by parasites.

Professional mice infestation control operatives are able to avoid disease risks when performing mouse control treatment due to their training and protective clothing.
