Many of our homes and business premises echo with the small scurrying sounds of mice, particularly in winter. Some of us ignore this until too late. Mice pose a serious risk to health and property and should be eradicated by both common sense and law.
Although seen as small and cute, mice almost always carry the Leptospirosis virus more famously transmitted by Rats and several other serious diseases linked to food poisoning.
Mice invade kitchens and lofts with impunity and breed rapidly, gnawing on wiring and pipework, causing fires and water leaks. Mice also shred stored possessions especially photo-albums and clothes.
Mice enter through very small holes or gaps in homes and businesses and their control, eradication and exclusion should be a priority. If you hear that scratching contact your pest controller immediately.
