What are the symptoms of a mouse bite?

If you are bitten by a mouse, you may experience symptoms similar to other bites, such as those from bed bugs or cockroaches. These can include itching, redness, swelling, pain, and even infection around the bite area. Additionally, mice can carry many diseases which may be transmitted through their saliva or feces. If you have a mouse bite we recommend that you see a doctor.

Cheese is not the ideal mouse trap bait. Since mice are omnivores, they eat a variety of foods, including seeds and fruits. Peanut butter or chocolate are great options for attracting mice to your traps.

The best time of year to get rid of mice is typically in the late summer or early fall. During this time, mice have already established their nests and are less likely to be able to find a new place to hide. However, mice can be an issue year-round so if you have mice in your home, we recommend calling a pest control company to mitigate the issue before it gets worse.

Mice typically have a lifespan of two to three years but can live up to four or five years in captivity. They usually have six to eight babies at a time and can get pregnant again in just five days after giving birth. Mice are nocturnal, so they are most active at night and less active during the day.

Mouse pest control refers to the methods used to prevent and eliminate mouse infestations in homes, buildings, or other structures. It can involve using physical traps, baits, and other chemical solutions to eliminate the mice population and keep them from returning. The goal of mouse pest control is to ensure the health and safety of people and animals and to prevent damage to buildings and property.

Yes, mice can have rabies. However, it is very rare for them to transmit the disease to humans. Rabies is a viral disease that primarily affects mammals, including mice. It is primarily spread through bites or scratches from infected animals, as the virus is present in their saliva. In the case of mice, their small size and lack of aggressive behaviour make it unlikely that they will transmit rabies to humans. However, it is still possible, so if you have been bitten or scratched by a mouse, it is important to seek medical attention immediately. Additionally, it is a good idea to avoid handling wild mice, as they may be carrying other diseases that can be harmful to humans.
