What To Know About A Deer Mouse Infestation

There are too many mice in the world to describe in this article, but one particular variety sparks a lot of interest and a great deal of fear. The deer mouse is a species of mouse that lives in the woods and creates nests in bushes and piles of leaves and foliage. They are known specifically for the fact that they carry ticks, unlike most other mice who tend to frequent grasslands, the deer mouse lives in forests. If you have a deer mouse infestation in your home the first thing you need to do is get everyone checked for ticks. Ticks in their final stage are easy to see and kill but the second stage of a tick is only a small black dot that can be very hard to find or identify and just as hard to remove. If the tick remains on you for more than twenty-four hours then you will contract Lyme disease and will be at the stage of the disease that is incurable. There is no way to slow it or stop it, all you can do is check and get checked for ticks whenever you go into the wilderness, or play in a pile of leaves.  if you are experiencing a rodent problem, call Mouse Exterminator Toronto   

When deer mice come into your home they bring the forest with them. They are often covered in ticks and any interaction you have with them, say if one gazes your foot, you will have to be dealt with by a medical specialist. These mice rarely enter the home, however. They tend to enter the attic as they are very good climbers. They will enter the attic often through the downspout and up to the eaves where they will enter through a fascia vent or the drip edge. It is very unlikely that they would ever even enter the home properly but in the winter they may get desperate for food. 

If you have an infestation in the attic it will be very hard to get rid of. If the mice are chewing holes there could be water damage and if they chew wires there is a chance of them starting a fire. If that is the case then you will need to act fast. Call Mouse control for a skilled and experienced technician who can find out the cause of your infestation and resolve it. He can then bait for the mice and exterminate the ones present without the risk of more coming in.
