Deer Mice Prevention & Removal MN

Image of a deer mouseDeer mice are named due to the white under-belly that resembles a white tailed deer. A deer mouse can climb much like a squirrel, so they can be more problematic to prevent and get rid of. The other big issue with deer mice is the fact that they are the number one carrier of the Hantavirus.

Hantavirus in Deer Mouse Droppings

Hantavirus can be in the deer mouse’s urine and fecal matter, and is most easily transmitted to humans by inhaling dust that contains the rodent’s fecal matter. The Hantavirus can start like any simple cold or flu, but is deadly in 50% of human cases where the virus gets into the lungs. If you get any flu-like symptoms after possible contact with deer mice droppings or urine call your health care provider immediately.
