Despite their small size, mice can be a huge problem for homeowners in NJ. Our NJ pest control company deals with many cases of mouse infestations. For one woman in Hackensack, a mouse became an ongoing problem that has ended up leading to a lawsuit.
A 58-year-old Hackensack woman filed a lawsuit after suffering trauma from a mouse attack at Home Depot. The woman, Annette Reaves, claimed that the mouse jumped on her and scratched and bit her. This incident has left her with lingering trauma, as well as permanent orthopedic and neurological injuries.
Reaves was making a delivery at a local Home Depot store that had an apparent rodent problem. According to the lawsuit, Home Depot should be held responsible for not doing something about the rodent problem on their property.
You shouldn’t have to deal with possible mice attacks when you take steps to keep your own home clean. Don’t leave food out that mice might go after, and get rid of piles of clutter that they can turn into nests or hiding spots. You should also seal up any areas that they can get into, such as gaps around windows or doors or cracks in your foundation. This will significantly lower your risk of mouse problems.
Don’t let mice give you nightmares. Contact Allison Pest Control, and our NJ pest control company will eliminate them from your property.
