Dangers of Mice
Having a mouse infestation can be very dangerous. Mice are good creatures when in their natural habitats, but once exposed to us in our own can pose a potential threat that could cost us health risks and replacement costs for many of the problems they can pose. The potential dangers are:
Mice carry with them many very harmful diseases that, once spread to us through various means, are extremely dangerous for us. Among the myriad of potential diseases that could harm us, three major ones stand out the loudest.
Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis. Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis is a disease that humans can get through the inhalation of aerosolized particles of this disease, by ingesting contaminated food, or by haivng direct blood or fluid contact with the portions of this virus that are contained in the feces, urine, and saliva of many mice that commonly infest and invade human homes and businesses. Do not expose any cuts or open wounds to contaminated or virus infected blood. This very harmful disease, as stated by the CDC can be a cause of neurological disease, mainly as aseptic meningitis.
Hemrrohagic fever. Hemrrohagic fever is a particularly dangerous disease that is commonly caused by direct contact with mouse feces, urine, or saliva. This disease that is carried by mice damages the overall vascular system, severely impairing and restricting the body’s natural ability to regulate it’s self. Many of these harsh symptoms are paired with hemorrhaging, or bleeding. Though the bleeding its self is, in many cases, rarely life threatening, it can cause other symptoms that majorly effect your body. Some severely afflicted patient cases can also show their bodies going into shock. This disease can cause your nervous system to malfunction, you to go into a coma, you to have severe delirium, and even seizures. Some types of hemrrohagic fever are associated, and have been known to cause kidney failure.
Hanta Virus. The Hanta virus is also a major virus that is linked to contact, or exposure to mice and other vermin that could infest your home or place of business. The Hanta virus has been known to be the cause of major heart disease in it’s human hosts that can prove to be fatal.
Another of the major dangers of mice infestation is the overall damage they can do to much of the property you or your business owns. Most of the damage they can do to your property is due to their need to constantly chew things to keep their teeth from growing too long. The teeth of mice and many other rodents are constantly growing, and it doesn’t ever really stop. The only solution mice and other rodents have to keeping their teeth from getting too long and being uncomfortable for them is to chew on anything they can get their teeth on.
When your home or business has been infested with these mice, the options they see as best for keeping their teeth growth in check is chewing on things like walls, furniture, cords, cables, wires, ceilings, and even flooring. The feces and especially urine of these vermin are very acidic and can cause much damage to anything they come in contact with.
If you are faced with the dangers of mice infestation, it is best to take this problem exceptionally seriously. This can cause so many problems to you, your business, those that do business with you, your family, and your co-workers that it is best to get rid of this problem as quickly and effectively as you can.
