Mice Have an Appetite for Destruction
Like other species of rodents such as rats and squirrels, mice are plagued with incisors that never stop growing. To combat the genetic disorder, mice must constantly chew and gnaw on objects to maintain the proper teeth size. This means whenever a family of mice enters your home, any object in the clan’s path is fair game to destroy. Mice also chew on objects to build nests in attics and basements. The rodents start the destruction by chewing soft objects, including clothing newspapers, and magazines.
When the soft stuff runs out, mice turn their attention to hard objects like wooden support beams and the insulation covering electrical wires. With enough time and mouse power, a team of mice can severely compromise the structural integrity of the wooden support beams that stabilize the roof. Mice also expose electrical wires, which can cause a power outage or worse, spark a fire the quickly spreads through wall insulation. Considerable financial loses and the potential of putting your family in harm’s way are reasons enough to contact Brinker Animal Removal for efficient mice removal.
Hungry Mice Leave Behind Harmful Diseases
Mice enter Dallas, TX homes for three reasons: to find food sources, to enjoy warm shelter during winter, and to deliver a litter of babies. After building large nests, mice begin the search for food throughout the house. Fruits and vegetable left in bowls on a kitchen counter and or a dining room table is easy pickings for a pack of mice. The rodents also like to dive into dry food bags and scamper into pantries to find grains and pasta. After consuming your food, mice have to dispose of the remnants and that means urine and fecal matter spread throughout your home.
Urine and fecal matter contain potentially deadly pathogens that can trigger the onset of foodborne illnesses. Most of the illnesses cause diarrhea, high fever, and incredibly painful stomach cramps. The elderly and young children are especially vulnerable to foodborne illnesses such as Salmonella and Lassa fever. Symptoms can get bad enough to require emergency care at the nearest hospital. Mice place you and your family in serious jeopardy of contracting life threatening illnesses. Health concerns alone are reason enough to hire Brinker Animal Removal to catch mice in your Dallas, Texas home.

Not only does gas cause unhealthy symptoms, using gas often forces mice to endure several agonizing minutes of excruciating pain before death arrives. We have a much more humane way of trapping mice.
