How are they harmful?
Mice control is critical. Mice carry bacteria, such as salmonella, on their bodies; the common white-footed deer mouse is a primary carrier of the deer tick, which transmits Lyme disease and is also linked to potentially fatal Hantavirus. Once inside your home, mice get into stored food products where their urine, fecal droppings and hairs quickly contaminate your cabinets, counter tops and cooking surfaces. Mice contaminate 10 times more food than they eat! They can also cause real damage to your home with their gnawing, even causing fires by gnawing on wire insulation. Repairs of mouse damage can be expensive.
Because mice can enter through a space about the size of a dime, exclusionary techniques as part of a Braman mice control program are also employed to help prevent future problems. If you think you have an infestation of mice, contact Braman immediately.
