Why you should deal with mice as soon as you have an inkling they're in your home

You have just seen a mouse in your Warwickshire home. Should you call in professionals to deal with it or is one mouse nothing to worry about? If you are thinking that it is nothing to worry about, you should know that this is how most mouse infestations start. A homeowner spots one and does nothing about it and soon, the house is overrun with them. There are several reasons why you have to take action as soon as you are aware of the slightest evidence of mice in your home:

•    The first and most important is the fact that mice cause disease. In fact, they are responsible for about 25 different diseases including heart problems. Not dealing with mice professionally as soon as you spot them or evidence of their existence is putting everyone at risk.

•    Mice are great destroyers of things. The will gnaw on wooden items; they eat through insulation and beware, if they get into your wardrobe they will eat your clothes.

•    Mice multiply so fast that they can number in the hundreds before you know it.

But how do you know you have mice? There are several telling signs that you have mice in the home. The first, of course, is if you actually see them. They are usually more confident at night and you can catch them if you put on the lights suddenly. The second sign that you may have mice is the amount of noise that they make. If you hear unusual noise at night especially in the higher areas of the house you most likely have mice in the home. The third sign is you will see their droppings.

Some people recommend that you take care of mice in your home with a liberal dose of rat poison. True, they will die, but you will have a bigger problem in your house. When you poison mice, they tend to crawl away to small, tight spaces and die there. Soon, there is an unbearable stench in the house.
