mouseMice are very sneaky rodents and carry safety and health concerns when you let mice continue to roam free in your home. We’ll cover 5 safety and health concerns of why you need to have Beeline address your rodent problems when living in Utah

1. Mice and disease transmission

Mice can carry and spread diseases such as salmonella, hantavirus, and Lyme disease, which can be dangerous to humans and pets.

2. Mice and allergies

Mice can cause allergic reactions in some people, due to the proteins found in their urine, droppings, and saliva.

3. Mice and contamination of food and surfaces

Mice are known to contaminate food and surfaces in homes, leading to potential food poisoning and the spread of disease.

4. Property damage

Mice can gnaw on electrical wires, wood, and other materials, causing damage to a home’s structure and potentially starting fires.

Gnawing: Mice have constantly growing incisors that they need to gnaw on to keep short, so they gnaw on various materials including electrical wires, insulation, furniture, and other structures within a home, potentially causing short circuits, fires, or structural damage.

Nesting: Mice often build nests in attics, walls, and other areas of homes using materials such as insulation, paper, and fabric, which can damage those areas.

Urine and droppings: Mice leave urine and droppings wherever they go, which can not only create unpleasant odors but also stain and weaken surfaces over time. Overall, mice can cause significant damage to a home and should be dealt with promptly to prevent further problems.

5. Mice cause additional pest infestations

Mice can attract other pests such as cockroaches and fleas, leading to larger infestations that can be difficult to control.


Overall a simple mouse problem should be dealt with quickly by a professional

A simple problem can become much larger due how fast mice can reproduce. A Female mice can become sexually mature at 6 to 8 weeks of age and can give birth to litters of 5 to 10 young every 3 to 4 weeks. This means that a single pair of mice can produce several litters in a year and result in a large population of mice in a relatively short amount of time. The speed at which mice can reproduce makes it important to address mouse infestations promptly to prevent their numbers from growing out of control.

Reviews from Utah Residents

I have had Beeline spraying my house for several years now. Adam is the best to work with. Very knowledgeable, thorough, respectful of my home and friendly. If you have any bug issues, I would highly recommend calling.

Tanner is very efficient and pleasant to work with. He has treated our properties several times. We started using Beeline several years ago when we had an ant problem in our house. Since we started using Beeline, we don’t have that problem any longer.
