A silent threat could lurk in the corners of your home or business, posing significant health risks many underestimate. 

Mice, often dismissed due to their size, are not simply nuisances but are carriers of diseases and contributors to unhealthy living environments. 

SWAT Wildlife emphasizes the urgency of addressing mice infestations promptly to safeguard your health and property.

Understanding the Health Risks Of Mice Infestations

Mice infestations bring along several health risks, some of which may cause long-term complications:

  • Disease Transmission: Mice are vectors for numerous pathogens capable of spreading diseases such as hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, leptospirosis, salmonellosis, and listeriosis. Transmission can occur through direct contact with mice feces, urine, or saliva or indirectly through ticks, fleas, and mites that have fed on infected mice. These illnesses range in severity, potentially leading to hospitalization or, in extreme cases, death.
  • Allergies and Asthma Exacerbation: Mice dander, droppings, and urine contain allergens that can trigger allergic reactions and acute asthma attacks, especially in vulnerable individuals like children, the elderly, or those with pre-existing respiratory conditions. It’s not uncommon for individuals living in infested homes to experience chronic sneezing, itching, and other allergy-related symptoms without recognizing the source of their discomfort.
  • Parasitic Infections: Beyond the pests themselves, mice often harbour ectoparasites, including fleas, ticks, and mites, each capable of transmitting their array of diseases to humans and domestic pets. These secondary infestations compound the health risks posed by the initial mouse presence, making swift action even more critical.

The Hidden Costs: Structural and Property Damage

The presence of mice infestations transcends health concerns, extending into potential structural and property damage. 

Their constant need to gnaw can lead to chewed electrical wires, a leading cause of unexplained fires in homes and businesses. 

Furthermore, mice damage insulation, woodwork, and personal belongings, contributing to considerable financial loss.

SWAT Wildlife’s Proactive Approach to Mice Removal

Recognizing these risks underscores the need for professional intervention. SWAT Wildlife approaches mice infestations with a comprehensive strategy that prioritizes both immediate removal and future prevention:

  • Humane and Eco-Friendly Removal: We use environmentally sound and humane techniques to safely remove mice infestations from your premises. Our methods underscore our commitment to wildlife preservation while addressing your immediate concern.
  • Exclusion and Preventative Measures: Eliminating the current infestation is only part of the solution. We implement effective exclusion techniques to seal entry points and recommend best practices to deter future infestations. This includes advice on food storage, waste management, and clutter reduction to make your property less appealing to mice.
