Mice in the Attic
Are you losing sleep because of scurrying, scratching, or squeaking? That might be a good indication that you have unwanted guests in your attic. The moment mice enter your property, you, your family, and your home become subject to destruction and diseases. Even if you can’t see them, if you suspect you have mice in your attic, take action immediately.
Keeping you up at night is not the only thing the mice in your attic will do. Give them enough time to multiply, and they’ll do hundreds of dollars’ worth of damage to the infrastructure of your attic. The damages you can expect include:
- Ripped and shredded attic insulation, which can lead to higher electric bills
- Damage to any stored belongings in your attic
- Frayed wiring which can lead to fire hazards
- Urine and feces build-up which will soak into your attic, staining your ceiling and walls.
Threats to Your Health
The tricky part about having mice in your attic, is that they can spread diseases without having to come into direct contact with you. Mice will step all over their waste, and as they wander around your home in search of food or nesting materials, they’ll track those germs around with them. If mice get into your food, you’ll want to dispose of it right away, even if it seems as though they haven’t eaten it. Additionally, mice can contaminate the air just by leaving behind their waste, so breathing it in can spread diseases like:
- Rat-bite fever
