Deer Mouse Pest Control
As a professional exterminator company, we take mouse and rodent activity seriously. Deer mice have been found in rural King and Snohomish counties and are common east of the Cascades. The deer mouse is an especially harmful mouse species that typically take up shelter in the cold, winter months. Suspected mouse infestations should be treated with caution.
Deer mice are similar in appearance to the house mouse, but there are some distinct differences within the mouse species. Coming into houses, buildings, and structures through small openings and cracks, if you see a mouse in the basement, garage, or attics with the following characteristics, you need pest control services.
Deer mice infestations are serious rodent issues as they are carriers of hantavirus. If you see any of the following signs of a deer mouse infestation, please call a pest control service specializing in rodent extermination immediately.
Call professional mice exterminators if you see any signs of these pests. Mouse control specialists will help to determine the best course of action for any rodent infestation including types of baits, traps, and trap placement.
One of the significant concerns of deer mice is the diseases they carry. The mouse may look cute and harmless, but contact with their feces, urine, or saliva and create serious health issues in humans.
The most serious of these diseases is hantavirus. Hantavirus is contracted through mouse carcasses or inhaling air-borne urine droplets, droppings, or saliva of infected deer mice. Often this happens when cleaning vacated buildings, spring cleaning, or sweeping nests in basements, attics, and other areas of your house. Touching items or eating foods contaminated by the mouse can also lead to exposure to Hantavirus.
Suspected deer mice infestations should be treated with caution as 50% of all Hantavirus cases result in death. Call a pest control service that specializes in deer mouse control & extermination immediately. Professional pest control companies & exterminators will help you determine the best course of action while keeping you and your family safe.
