Rodents, specifically mice, are a major menace in many homes. Once they find their way into your home, dealing with them can be a very difficult task. Since they are tiny, they can hide in floor cracks and many other out of the way places. The mice are commonly found in the fields while some of them could be found dwelling in places such as forests, plains as well as old rural homes. They range in color depending on the species and they can be black, brown or white with different tail length sizes. They are extremely curious animals.
If you do not get an exterminator to get rid of the mice on your farm, they will start feeding on any food item that is available to them. They are prey to dogs, cats, snakes, bears, rabbits and owls. They are usually nocturnal in nature and they will venture outside only after they have cautiously and fully assessed their surroundings. It can be quite hard to spot them since they use their coats to camouflage and blend in with dried leaves and rocks. The only thing that makes them not to survive for long is the fact that they are often consumed by predators.
But the rate at which the mice multiply is really fast, so you cannot sit back hoping that predators will consume them all in case they have infested your farm. The females are able to become pregnant on a monthly basis so you can imagine what is going to happen if you do not get them exterminated in a few months. The baby field mice are usually born blind, deaf and bald. However, in just a few weeks, they will have reached maturity and they will also start mating. This tells you that their population is going to increase really fast if you do not do something to get rid of them.
When the mice become too many, some of them will start finding their way into your house. That is a hazardous situation since the mice can spread diseases and also cause property damage inside your house. The accumulation of feces from the mice can spread bacteria, trigger allergic reactions to family members and also contaminate food sources. When the feces become dry, they can have side effects to those who breathe it in. Moreover, mice droppings can also spread diseases and viruses such as Hantavirus, bubonic plague, salmonellosis and rat-bite fever.
