Mouse Health Concerns
Accumulations of mouse feces can spread bacteria. Mice can also contaminate food sources and add to allergic reactions in humans. Once mouse fecal matter becomes dry, it can be very hazardous to breathe, potentially spreading diseases such as Hantavirus, Bubonic Plague, Salmonellosis, Rat-Bite Fever. Therefore, sanitation and decontamination are an extremely important part of mouse control after removing the mice and excluding them from the structure. Never sweep up dry droppings as this aerates the dust and makes it easier to breathe. If vacuuming, be sure to use a vacuum equipped with HEPA Filtration.
