Mice & Rats
Mice infestation is probably one of the most common pest control issues homeowner’s and pest professionals deal with. Rest assured, you are not alone! A female mouse can give birth when they are only two months old and are able to have up to a dozen babies every six weeks. Despite their tiny size, mice eat between 15 and 20 times a day and each mouse produces between 40 and 100 droppings per day!
In addition, mice constantly give off micro-droplets of urine daily as they travel their territory. They are good jumpers, climbers and swimmers. Mice can jump up at least a foot, allowing them to easily climb up onto counters or into pantries for food. Mice can squeeze through openings smaller than a dime! This means that a small crack or opening is like an open highway for mice. Although they usually only live about a year, mice can spread more than 20 kinds of disease organisms like Hantavirus and Salmonella and carry as many as 200 human pathogens.
