No one likes to share their home with unwanted guests, including rodents, insects, and spiders. While they have a purpose in the ecosystem, we want these pests to stay outdoors because our house is our refuge. We go inside our homes to relax; we don't go home only to live in fear of something crawling over us at night, infecting our food, or biting us.

One rodent that no one wants to encounter inside the home is mice. Although they have a certain cuteness, we still don't want them getting into our Woodlands home. If you suspect mice are in your house, you need All-Safe Pest & Termite. We are your award-winning pest control in The Woodlands. When you call, we quickly respond and work to stop mice in your home.

Spotting One Mouse In Your House Usually Means Many More

A mouse in the house is indicative of many more. A female house mouse will start birthing new mice when she is only six to eight weeks old. She can produce six pinkies (babies) every three weeks for an annual production of 35 mice — and she is only one female mouse! One mouse in the house is an indication of a mice infestation.

It's Very Dangerous To Have Mice In Your Home

Although they are cute, you want to keep mice out of the house because they carry disease and contaminate food. Mice spread disease through their feces or by contact with a dead mouse. House mice are a mouse species that commonly invades Woodland homes. These are diseases mice carry:

  • Leptospirosis
  • Lymphocytic choriomeningitis (LCM)
  • Tularemia
  • Salmonellosis

Salmonella spreads through house mice droppings left on surfaces and food. Salmonella infection causes fever, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. You may or may not have symptoms from leptospirosis; however, if you do contract this bacterial disease, you may experience kidney damage and inflammation of the tissue around the brain and spinal cord. Tularemia is treatable with antibiotics, but if left untreated may be life-threatening.

House mice trigger allergic reactions in some children due to the bacteria in the feces. When a child inhales the dust of dry feces, they may have an allergic reaction or asthma attack. 

Mice in the house bring hitchhikers such as fleas, ticks, mites, and lice into the home. These bugs create their own set of problems for occupants of the house. Because of the various dangers mice pose to homeowners, you want to take action to get rid of mice in the house.

Why Mouse Traps Aren't Enough To Get Rid Of An Infestation

Hearing a mouse trap crack shut in the middle of the night gives one a sense of victory. Because of your effort, the mouse has met its maker, and you feel a sense of relief; however, that feeling ends when you see another mouse the next day in the same area.

The problem with mouse traps is that they do not get mice out of the walls. Killing a mouse does not stop the mice from reproducing and growing their colony inside walls.
