Is there a Mouse in your House?
Mice that infest houses or commercial building are typically 5-8 inches long including a long hairless tail. They have large ears, and their droppings are the size of a grain of rice. Look at the walls, ceilings, floor, and around wires and pipes inside of your house. Look for droppings around these areas to determine if your residence is being used as a mouse hotel.
Can House Mice be Dangerous?
House mice are rarely apt to bite someone, but their presence can be harmful to human health.
In the case of a Johns Hopkins study, more than 25 percent of the homes tested, contained levels of the mouse allergen high enough to aggravate asthma symptoms.
Being exposed can lead too:
- Asthma symptoms (wheezing, difficulty breathing, etc.)
- Full-blown asthma attack
Mouse droppings and urine can contaminate food, if the population is not controlled. House mice can cause contamination problems in places where they nest. Some diseases can be transmitted by house mice include but not limited to, lymphocytic choriomeningitis and food poisoning.
Some indicators that mice, and therefore airborne mouse allergen, may be present in your home include:
- Cracks and holes in walls or doors
- Open food in the kitchen
- Evidence of mouse infestation, such as mouse droppings
