Mouse Infestations on the Rise

Follow me on:

baby miceThe East Coast has been seeing an increase in mice over the last few years. But according to an article in the Newburyport Daily News, no one really knows why.

Sheila Haddad of Bell Laboratories is cited in the article as cited possible reasons as being "the unseasonably mild winter as a potential explanation for this season's sudden rise, a possible decline in predators or a reluctance to deal with the problem before it gets out of hand."

But regardless of the reason, mice and rats can spread disease and damage and should be dealt with as soon as a problem is suspected.
