Mice Droppings

Mouse droppings are considered hazardous because they may cause illnesses such as Hantavirus which can be serious and even lead to death if the victim is not quickly attended to by medical services. The Hantavirus which is caused by mouse droppings is identified by the following symptoms; fever, vomiting, nausea and headaches. This disease mainly affects humans but other animals such as pets may also be infected. It is also important to note that not all mouse droppings cause diseases and only the mouse that is infected may pass on the virus to humans.

The most common mouse species that has the Hantavirus is the Deer mouse. This means not all mice species pass on the disease. It is important to always take precautions as simply looking at the mouse droppings you cannot know the mouse species they came from. In any case, mouse droppings should be handled with a lot of caution to avoid getting infected.
