The ground may be covered in glorious white snow in New Jersey and it may look peaceful and calm as the birds flitter about and the squirrels pounce up and down throughout the snow, but don’t be fooled, pesky home invaders are still trying to make their way indoors to seek shelter away from the cold chilly weather.
The holiday time period brings about great fun for certain. We spend ample time preparing fabulous meals and baking special sugary treats to share with family and friends. It’s at this time of year that our kitchen is turned upside down as many cooking items that lay dormant throughout the year come into play for our festive creations.
While digging through the bottom of two kitchen drawers that are not frequented very often, I discovered the unpleasant surprise of newly left house mouse fecal matter left behind among my kitchen gadgets. I must say, it’s a brave mouse that decides to take up residence in my home, especially with four cats roaming about.
All cooking had to cease of course as the entire area required immediate disinfection. Mice feces and urine can contain dangerous pathogens like Salmonella, which can cause food poisoning and Hantavirus, which can cause a serious illness or even be fatal. Proper and swift clean-up and removal of any New Jersey house mouse infestation is essential.
