Mice are a danger in every way that can be imagined. They are a danger both to the house, the inhabitants, and even to the exterior like your garden or your deck. They will invasively enter your home and cause non-stop problems that will drive you mad. Mice come in different varieties and knowing them is very important to your health and safety. Now all mice are dangerous carriers of the disease but some mice carry different illnesses and parasites. While house mice can bring Giardia and fleas into your home, deer mice can bring ticks that can cause Lyme Disease, there is no cure for Lyme disease. It’s a terrible illness that affects the brain and it only has a 24 hour incubation period before the sickness solidifies in your body. The symptoms and effects are debilitating and terrifying, watching a family member experience this illness, which is fatal, can be heartbreaking. No one should experience that kind of pain. This is why knowing what mice are in your home is so important. House mice are not nearly as dangerous as deer mice and field mice who also enter the home through completely different means. if you are experiencing a rodent problem, call Mouse Control Mississauga
The field mouse is the most unusual of the mice species common to southern Ontario. They can leap impossible distances allowing them to jump from tree to tree and onto your roof with absolutely no issue or difficulty at all. They can then enter your roof by simply flattening themselves out and sliding through the fascia vent or between a gap in the soffits. They can squeeze through any tight space just like any mouse and can condense their bodies down to one-third of the size. This allows them to enter the attic directly. If you have mice in your attic but not in the rest of your house it is very likely to be field mice or deer mice. House mice always enter through the bottom of the house often infesting the basement before even getting to the first floor. They tend to breed in a specific area and then as their numbers grow they slowly move up floors in the house. It takes them years but they will eventually get to the attic doing this. That means if you have a long-standing mouse infestation it may be very difficult to figure out what kind of mouse it is.
