Not-So-Fun-Sized House Guests
Although many species of this furry rodent are becoming common pets across Europe and the UK, your average feral mouse is still considered a pest and public health hazard. Mice are smaller relatives of the rat and while they cause less damage during the average course of a day, they can still pose threats to our health and wellbeing. Transmission of diseases such as Salmonella and Listeria from mice to humans have been recorded countless times throughout history and it continues to occur to this day.
A single mouse needs only a tiny access point into your house or commercial building to start wreaking havoc. These critters will eat through food storage containers, electrical cables, pipes, and even woodwork; nothing is safe from their gnawing. Mice are constantly chewing on things because of a compulsive need to keep their teeth a certain length throughout their life. So, while they are not aggressive and may not intend to destroy your possessions, the risks they pose are still just as great.
