Pest of the Month
Mice that live in or near human dwellings are called commensal rodents. Commensal, or domestic, rodents are of tremendous public health importance. They may eat or contaminate human food, carry ectoparasites such as mites and fleas into close human contact, cause allergies in sensitive individuals and be disease carriers. In addition to their uncleanliness, mice gnaw through stored food packaging, eating portions of the product and contaminating it with their feces, urine and shed hairs. They also (mostly at night) contaminate food preparation surfaces such as counter tops, table tops and cookware.
Wild mice transmit a serious disease called hantavirus pulmonary syndrome. This is a rodent-borne virus that can cause severe respiratory problems and even death. Hantavirus is spread through the urine, saliva and feces of rodents, especially deer mice. Humans contract the disease by breathing in dried particles of the rodent's urine or feces. This can occur when cleaning an indoor area that was infested by deer mice. Hantavirus causes a victim's lungs to fill with liquid. Symptoms can develop within one to six weeks and include muscle aches, fever and possibly chills, headaches, nausea, diarrhea, abdominal pain and coughing.
