There are millions and millions of viruses out in the world. The truth is, most viruses are not harmful and may leave you feeling sick for a couple of days, but then you bounce right back. However, there are also some more gruesome, life-threatening viruses that should be avoided at all costs. Among these viruses include the deadly Hantavirus, known for being transferred to humans by rodents, specifically deer mice. At Minnesota Wild Animal Management, Inc., we put your health and safety as a first priority. Deer mice have no place in the home or business and we are your local mice exterminators that can help.
Hantavirus is Transferred by Deer Mice Urine & Feces
This life-threatening virus is mostly contracted by humans through rodents. Deer mice, in particular, carry this virus and release it within their urine and feces. While it never makes the deer mice sick, human contact with this virus is deadly. Humans can get this virus just by breathing in dust from the deer mice droppings or even their nests. According to the CDC, the best way to prevent you and your loved ones from contracting this particular virus is to eliminate or at the least minimize contact with deer mice in the home or workplace. Prevention is key as there is no known antiviral treatment for this particular virus.
Other Deer Mice Damage
While Hantavirus may be the most deadly reason to remove deer mice from your home, it’s certainly not the only reason. Deer mice are nuisance rodents that can climb as well as squirrels. This makes them more difficult to catch and makes it way easier for them to spread out in and around your home and multiply. Just like any other mice, these rodents can tear through wires, chew up insulation, and put your home or business at risk for electrical fires. Deer mice have no place in your home and should be prevented or removed if you are ever at risk.
