House mice in Maryland are very resourceful animals, as you might have noticed. They are small enough to fit through the tiniest hole, fast enough to travel unnoticed, and as long as you have food, they have it too. The problem is that mice can produce up to 35 young a year.
And while these mice might seem small and harmless, house mice can cause a lot of damage to your property and health:
- Their droppings can contaminate your food and food preparation areas
- They can transmit more than 35 diseases, the most common, salmonelle and other diseases, as well as bring fleas, ticks and lice into your home
- They can cause damage to insulation, drywall, food supplies and other items
- The electrical wires they chew are a major cause of house fires
How to Know If You Have a Mouse Problem
If you think you have a mouse problem in your home but aren’t sure, check and see if you notice any of these signs:
- Black rice-shaped droppings in cabinets, closets or other dark, secluded spaces
- Damaged food packaging in your pantry or stockpile
- Piles of food, such as pasta or dog food, stashed in odd places
- Scratching noises behind the walls or inside the ceiling
Trapping (or poisoning) mice is the means of population control, but it doesn’t solve the underlying problem – mice getting into your home. These pests can enter through foundations cracks, gaps around piping and windows, and virtually any hole the size of a pencil. Believe it or not, if its skull fits, the entire mouse can fit.
