Top 10 Diseases You Can Get From Wild Mice

Mice are one of the most dangerous rodents that one must look out for. They are dangerous and disgusting creatures that are carriers of many diseases, some of which are life threatening. They transmit diseases to other animals, including human beings via droppings, biting, ticks and lice, mites and fleas. When they run over food items and bite into them, germs are left behind. Consumption of this food leads to catching the infection because the food is now contaminated.

Top ten diseases that you can get from wild mice include

  1. Salmonella
  2. Rat-bite fever
  3. Hantavirus
  4. Typhus
  5. Plague
  6. Pox
  7. Leptospirosis
  8. Lassa fever
  9. Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome
  10. Hemorrhagic Fever with Renal Syndrome

The above diseases are just as scary as they sound. Some of the more dangerous ones can cause severe respiratory distress such as the Hantavirus. A rat-bite fever is dangerous because the fever can relapse for several months. Salmonella, also known as food poisoning, causes intestinal disorders. The plague attacks both the respiratory as well as the circulatory symptoms. None of these diseases are easy on the body or fast to get rid of.

It is not just the wild mice but the pet mice too that are capable of carrying diseases. One must ensure that the pet mouse is vaccinated and kept clean to avoid pet owners from being infected. The wild mice need to be kept out of the home. Utilizing mouse control Glasgow is one of the best ways to keep the mice out.

You need a professional agency who will not only remove the rats from your home but also tell you the preventive measures to keep the rats out. Preventive measures are just as vital as the treatment. There is no point in hiring a pest control agency if you are unable to keep the premises clean and healthy.
