Mice, cockroaches, rats, and other pests not only are carriers of dangerous diseases, but also producers of allergens, which can cause or trigger asthma.
Just like humans, those critters need shelter and food, and ususally they choose warm, dark dump areas, where they can safely live and reproduce.
About 75 percent of suburban homes actoss the nation were found to have detectible amounts of allergens produced by mice. This number seems extremely high especially when you consider that these allergens are very likely to cause allergic asthma, especially among children.
One of the best way for parents to monitor their child asthma and keep it under control is to keep home environment clean. This includes making sure that the house is pest-free.
Sometimes it is hard to detect whether or not your house is really infested with pests, howvever, there are some apparent signs of unwanted guests.
Droppings – is the first sign that will tell you about the problem. Mice leave a lot of dropping throughout the day and you will be able to find them along walls, in wall cracks, cupboards and other dark spaces of your house. Normally thise droppings resemble grains of brown rice.
Smell – have you noticed that strong ammonia smell that you cannot find a source of? This is another strong signal o the mice presence. Mice lprefer to live in dark environments, so the smell is their way to communiate and mark their routes.
Noises – are you hearing scrtachy noises? Chances are you are being introduced to your unwated neighbors, who will not pay the rent.
It is highly recomemmended that you use help of a professional animal removal service.
