Rodent Realizations – Should You Worry If Find A Mouse In Your House?

Our professional exterminators understand how unnerving it can be to find mice in your Omaha or Council Bluffs home. Discovering that you are sharing your home with some unwanted visitors is never a pleasant experience and something that every homeowner will want to avoid. Whether you are living alone, with friends, a partner, or family, it’s crucial that you react accordingly when you find a mouse in the house.

The big question that most homeowners have when they see a mouse in the house, is whether or not they need to be worried. At Genie Pest Control, our advice is not to worry but to take action right away. Calling our professional exterminators to deal with the problem as soon as possible is the key as failing to take action could result in a number of worrying issues developing over time.

Below, we share some potential causes for concern if you find mice in your Omaha or Council Bluffs home. Ideally, taking immediate action by calling a professional exterminator is always recommended.

You Could Become Ill

There are many different species of mice that can come into your home but they all have one thing in common; they can make you sick. Mice contaminate the areas where they eat, roam, and nest. They can spread a range of different diseases such as salmonellosis, listeria, and Hantavirus, which can be harmful to your health. To avoid this worry simply schedule an inspection today if you suspect there are mice in your home.

Mice Have Big Families

Did you know female mice breed year-round? What’s more, they can have anywhere from five to ten liters in a single year and each litter can have up to eight babies. That means that mice multiple very quickly! If you see a single mouse in your Omaha or Council Bluffs home, it’s safe to assume that the rest of their family is not too far away and they too will soon have a family of their own.

Home Destroyers

Another reason you might worry if you see mice in your home is that they are not the best tenants to have. Not only is watching them scurry across the floors unnerving but they can quickly destroy your home. A mouse has teeth that are strong enough to gnaw through a range of materials such as aluminum, concrete, timber, soft concrete, drywall, plastic pipes, and other materials commonly found in homes. They can also chew through electrical wires, which can cause house fires. We are huge believers in peace and tranquility when it comes to pests of all kinds. Rather than worrying about having any pests, you can jump into action by scheduling an inspection so professional exterminators can eradicate the issue.
