chances of getting sick from mouse droppings

Mice are a virulent and aggressive species, they will eat from any food they can access and a closed cupboard door is no impediment. If you have food stashed in the basement or the garage you are inviting mice to consume it and in the process urinate on it, cover it in their toxic saliva and cover it is hard to find droppings that can look like sprinkles on a cake. Mice can enter your home from anywhere. House mice can get into your home from the garage, the foundation if it has cracks and openings. The deer mouse can climb up trees and drain pipes and enter the house through the drip edge getting total attic access right away whereas house mice have to work their way up the house over years. Both of these mice leave countless droppings and their dropping is a source of half a dozen diseases all of which can be fatal without immediate treatment.
