Rats and Mice Control Tip

Mouse droppings and health risks - The mouse droppings health risk is attributed to the numerous diseases that are associated with rodents. Rats and mice are no exception to this rule, despite their diminutive size. While it may take some time for mouse waste to accumulate to noticeable levels, even a small amount of fecal matter can prove dangerous. Mice and other rodents carry illnesses that can be transmitted to humans through contact. Contact does not have to by physical. If you practice improper cleaning methods when dealing with mouse droppings, the health risk to you and others in the area becomes significantly more severe. Vacuuming or sweeping can push dangerous particles into the air where they can then be inhaled. Even some less-common diseases, like Leptospirosis, can aerosolize and be breathed in. You should never handle mouse droppings with bare hands or without proper pulmonary protection. It may seem like an extreme measure to wear goggles and a mask for a few droppings, but you will be glad of the protection when you learn about the numerous deaths caused by Hantavirus annually. It is true that the fewer the droppings, the less the risk; however, catching and removing rodents before they become problematic is the real solution for zoonotic disease.

Mouse deterrent - do moth balls work? - Oh, if only moth balls were the super-killer legend has made them out to be, then perhaps the hundreds of people suffering from rodent infestations would find relief. As you have probably guessed, moth balls are not a good mouse deterrent. The original plan for this round chemical was to have it placed inside areas where moths gathered to eat valuable cloth. To this purpose scientists created a mixture of deodorants and fumigants to effectively kill and prevent the propagation of insects. To this day, moth balls are excellent at the job they were initially tasked with. The potent aroma of moth balls had some interesting side effects, one of which was that people around the country discovered they hated the smell of the chemicals. If they couldn’t stand it, it made sense to assume that no creature on the planet would be able to tolerate the odor either. And so the legend of moth balls was born. In reality, moth balls are only effective at what they were created for. When used in any other capacity on nuisance animals, moth balls fail to stand up to the myth of grandeur that encompasses them. Mice are not as hardy as rats, but these little animals can go almost anywhere inside of a home. To think that a box of mothballs in the attic will push them out of a home is unreasonable. The fumes from a moth ball will never reach the areas where mice spend most of their time.
