Don’t Let Mice Into Your Massachusetts Or New Hampshire Home

Mice may be small and look relatively harmless, but the truth is that these creatures create chaos wherever they go. From chewing through your walls, pipes, and electrical wires to spreading dangerous bacteria and other pathogens all over your house in their droppings, mice will cause significant problems in your Massachusetts or New Hampshire home.

Getting rid of a mouse infestation is rarely as clear-cut as you might hope since they are naturally cautious, prefer to remain hidden, and breed rapidly. Once they get into your house, they’re likely to quickly increase in number while remaining in hard-to-reach locations. To fully eliminate an infestation, you need the services of the rodent control experts at Freedom Pest Control. We’ve been solving mouse problems since 1994, are knowledgeable about the behaviors mice exhibit in a house setting, and have the skills and equipment necessary to make your house free of mice.

Diseases Mice Spread

To fully understand why mice must be removed from your house as quickly as possible, it helps to know about some of the diseases they can spread. Once you understand how dangerous they are to your family, we’re confident you’ll agree that their immediate removal is necessary.

Leptospirosis

Leptospirosis is a bacterial blood infection you can contract from the urine of mice. Symptoms range from mild to severe and can include headaches, fevers, rashes, vomiting, and more. Leptospirosis is treatable with antibiotics, but if left untreated, it can cause kidney or liver damage or even lead to death.

Salmonellosis

This familiar illness is usually contracted by eating contaminated food. The bacteria salmonella causes symptoms that usually include diarrhea, abdominal pain, and vomiting. Severe cases can lead to dehydration and can require hospitalization.

Tularemia

Tularemia is a rare but serious disease. It is a bacterium that can survive for long periods of time and is very infectious. Symptoms vary based on how it is transmitted. If it is treated promptly, people can survive a tularemia infection, but if not, it can be deadly.

Hantavirus

Hantavirus is spread by breathing in particles that become airborne from mouse urine or feces. Symptoms include muscle aches, headaches, chills, and abdominal issues, but these give way to coughing, tightness in the chest, and shortness of breath as the disease progresses. Hantavirus is extremely dangerous, with a mortality rate of over 35%.

Lassa Fever

Lassa fever is an illness that often has mild symptoms and goes undiagnosed. When symptoms are present they include a mild fever, weakness, and headaches. In about 20% of cases, the symptoms are more severe and death can occur. Deafness is the most common complication of Lassa fever.

Omsk Hemorrhagic Fever

Omsk hemorrhagic fever is caused by a virus that can be spread by mice. Symptoms appear suddenly and include fever, muscle pain, and abdominal problems. Most people recover after a week or two, but some have a second set of symptoms that can be more severe and include encephalitis.

Hemorrhagic Fever

Hemorrhagic fever is spread by contact with an infected mouse. It is extremely rare, but can become dangerous because it interferes with the blood’s ability to clot. Most people recover on their own, but sometimes medical intervention is necessary.

Our mouse control process

We’ll begin your mouse control with an inspection of your home and property. We’ll look for mouse activity, droppings, and entry points in order to determine where mice are getting inside, where they’re spending their time, and how widespread the infestation has become.

After our inspection, we’ll meet with you to discuss our findings, give you information about our treatment options, and provide you with some basic education about mice so that you know what you’re dealing with.

We use a variety of methods to eliminate mouse infestations. Traps and bait stations are two methods that are effective at getting rid of the mice in your house. We will place these in strategic locations to eliminate your mouse infestation without putting your children or pets at risk of coming into contact with them.

Eliminating your current infestation is only half the battle. We must also work to keep mice from being able to get into your home in the future. We offer exclusion work and can do small repairs to seal off entry points that we find during our inspection. This will prevent mice from getting into your house in the future.

Mouse Facts

Mice aren't all that discreet about where they do their business. Every day, a single house mouse leaves behind 40 to 100 pellets of feces (through which more than 35 diseases can be spread). But their liquid waste is even more alarming. Male mice constantly release droplets of urine to mark their territory.
