It’s Rodent Season! Be Prepared: Mice Spread Germs and Diseases; Cause Destruction in Your Home!


Not only are they disgusting and intrusive, but a mouse can also spread germs that carry as many as 200 human pathogens. If you, unfortunately, find an infestation in your home, don’t feel like it is your fault and that your house is not clean enough. Simply put, the crisp fall air that most of us find refreshing is actually a signal to mice that it’s Rodent Season – time for them to find a home to hunker down in throughout the fall and winter months.

A rodent’s primary goal is to seek warmth, shelter, and most importantly food, which can mean:

  • Contamination of your food
  • Chewed wires
  • Droppings left on your floors
  • Oily marks left on surfaces
  • Holes in the walls


It’s important to clear up any infestation as soon as it’s discovered. Even if you find just one mouse, there may be many more to follow:

  • Mice can have a litter up to 10 times a year and can carry up to 12 babies in one litter, so just one male and one female mouse are all it takes for an infestation to occur!
  • Rats can mate around 500 times in a six-hour period and produce up to 2,000 offspring
  • House mice are said to be the most common mammal in the US, invading an estimated 21 million homes.
