5 Strange Facts about Mice

Eek! Is a mouse in your house? If you saw a mouse, you likely have an entire family of mice hiding in your walls. Perhaps you didn’t see a mouse, but you are suspicious.

If you saw a mouse or have other signs of an infestation, it is not something to be ignored. According to the Center for Disease Control, mice (and rats) spread over 35 diseases!

These diseases can infect your family through bites, feces, urine, saliva, or through fleas and ticks that have bitten the mouse (Cdc.gov.)

Some tell-tale signs of mice are:

  • Droppings
  • Gnawing sounds
  • Tracks
  • Partially eaten food
  • Burrows and nests
  • Scurrying sounds at night
  • Smell of urine
