Hantavirus has become a major treat to humans with spread of rodents in the US. One of the major carriers is the Deer Mouse (Peromyscus maniculatus). This rodent looks deceptively cute and does not look threatening at all. It has large ears and eyes with a body size of approximately 2-3 inches and a tail another 2-3 inches. With white belly, rest of the body color range from reddish brown to grey, based on age of the rodent. This mouse prefers wooded areas, but will try to enter a dwelling in October - November to stay warm. Given the ability of this mouse to slither through a very small opening (hole size of the dime) it is very difficult to completely proof a house or a building completely against a rodent invasion and infestation. Appropriate steps must be taken to control rodent population outside of perimeter of the house during warm summer and fall month to prevent mice and any other rodent from migrating into human habitat.

Hantavirus causes hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome! HFRS is a group of clinical illnesses caused by a variety of hantaviruses (Bunyavirdae family) and includes epidemic hemorrhagic fever, and nephropathis epidemica. Those viruses found throughout the world, but in the US hantavirus causes desease known as hantavirus pulmonary syndrom.


mice and rat exterminatorPeople usually become infected with these viruses be being exposed to rodent urine and droppings, but also saliva and nest's dust. Extreme precautions must be taken when cleaning and removing mouse droppings and nests. Transmission of hantavirus may occur through a broken skin or mucus membrane of the mouth, eyes or nose. Rare cases of rodent bites also can transmit hantavirus. There is a slight chance of human to human transmission, but it is extremely rare. Other known carriers of hantavirus is a Norway or brown rat (Rattus norvegicus) and stripped field mouse (Apodemus agrarius).


After a previously discussed exposure to hantavirus symptoms will occur usually within  1-2 weeks after exposure, but in some rare cases disease may take up to 8 weeks to fully develop. Initially symptoms will include severe headaches, fever, abdominal and back pain, nausea, chills, inflammation of the eyes. Progressive symptoms may include acute shock, low blood pressure, and acute kidney failure. Recovery from illness is prolonged and may take weeks. Depending on a type of hantavirus death rate ranges between 1% to 15% of patients.


Primary prevention technique is proper rodent control. Rodents (mice and rats)should be removed from human habitat (home) and proper cleaning procedures should be utilized. When cleaning after rodents it is highly recommended to wear respirator, proper rubber gloves, protective goggles. Vacuuming of rodent droppings should be avoided unless it's done with hepa filtered vacuum cleaner.

A foot note to this paragraph: To a lot of people mice look like cute little animals and we understand some will feel bad, that those animals will be killed. However rodent is a dangerous pest that will create a range of serious problems for homeowner, and those issues include health related and economic problems. Those are not the same rodents that are sold in the pet stores. Domesticated rodents are bred to be around people and they do not carry diseases associated with their wild counterparts. Removing rodents from a human habitat should be a first priority.

There are some inherent dangers in unwanted rodent population in households with small children. As children crawl on the floor there is a danger of exposure to a hantavirus even if there are no visible mice or rat droppings on a floor. As rodents travel they leave a trail of tiny urine drops along the trail. This the way they mark their path to find a road back home to their nest and also allows other rodents to follow. Urine trail is not visible under normal lighting conditions and usually can be identify by experienced rodent control technician, using ultraviolet light. Rodent urine is a major reason why rodents must be exterminated as quickly as possible. 

There are relatively few varieties of rodents that are common in the United States that pose any type of rodent related risk. They are: the deer mouse, house mouse, Norway rat, and roof rat
the deer mouse
The deer mouse is found mostly in rural and suburban areas and not specifically known to invade homes. They prefer to live outdoors but will inhabit detached garages and sheds. Preferred habitat for the deer mouse is a rotten hollowed-out lumber or piles of debris. When this rodent does invade inside of a home it prefers to make a nest in the area's of the house that is undisturbed, such as attic. The deer mouse transmits a dangerous hantavirus as discussed earlier, which can cause a serious illness.

The house mouse is the most prevalent rodent through out the U.S. It has the ability to breed rather quickly and has a potential for serious infestation if left unchecked. House mouse is highly adaptable to almost any environment and will inhabit wall voids to make a nest that they can share. Also can carry different diseases and will contaminate food stock. It is know to cause allergies in children that come in contact with it's urine and can bring parasites such as fleas, lice, mites and ticks into human habitat. It ranges in color from light gray to black and about 2 inches long

Norway Rats
also known by their Latin classification as Rattus norvegicus. Approximate size of a Norway rat is about 7-8 inches for a body and 4 inch tail. Norway rats live throughout the United States. Rats can climb wide variety of surfaces and will try to enter homes as weather gets cold and food supplies become scarce. Unlike it's cousin a roof rat, Norway rats are bottom dwellers. They live in the sewers, also known to make burrows in the roots of trees. Diet will encompass just about anything organic since Norway rats are omnivorous. They are capable of spreading a number of diseases due to their activity and propensity to live in the sewers. Norway rats are not as shy as roof rats and if cornered known to attack it's enemies including humans. Presence of a rat inside a house can be recognized through it's droppings, which are about 8-10 times larger than that of a house mouse   Rats will beroof rat able to get their body through a hole no bigger than a quarter. Aside from potential diseases rats pose another serious threat to buildings by chewing through electric wires which can start a fire. This is especially troublesome in New Jersey since electric code does nor require a BX (metal) shielded wire

Roof Rats are also common in the United States and prefers to live in the trees. Will inhabit attic of the house especially if there are trees overhanging the house. Roof rats are generally vegetarian and feed primarily on berries, fruits and other vegetation. Main reason roof rats like to live in the attic, besides the obvious warmth of the dwelling is it's access beck to the trees. So proper trimming of branches overhanging the house is very important. Just follow a trimming regiment specific to that tree, so it does not get damaged. Roof rats ate mostly black ans somewhat smaller than Norway rat  with a body size of about 6-8 inches long with equally long tail. Roof rats are mostly vegetarian and prefer diet of berries and fruit. They have poor vision, but acute sense of smell, touch, hearing and taste. As Norway rats the roof rats can also cause damage to structures by chewing through wires, siding and stored food. With their highly flexible bodies roof rats can squeeze through a hole no bigger than half an inch. It was roof rats that spread bubonic plague in Europe in the middle ages. Roof rat bodies are storage tanks for many different ectopic-parasites and are known to urinate on food stocks. Killing rats is nor as simple as killing mice. Rats are a lot more intelligent than mice and do detect patterns. Alternating treatment techniques will produce desired results in killing rodents and reducing infestation levels. In summation mice and rats do not belong in a human habitat and should be removed as soon as possible, once detected.

Q. If a mouse or a rat was killed in a snap trap, can I reuse it?
A. No, in most cases mice and rats usually will not  go to a trap that has an odor of a dead rodent. Rodents (both mice and rats) have acute sense of smell.

Q. I found a lot of mouse droppings should I vacuum them up?
A. Absolutely not unless you have a vacuum with a HEPA filter. A regular vacuum will make viruses and bacteria present in the rodent  feces in the droppings airborne and disperse them through out the area. Droppings should be picked-up with a damp paper towel, while wearing rubber gloves. A chlorine clean up  will disinfect the area with rodent droppings.

Q. Why do I see mice hide mostly under the stove and refrigerator?
A. Those appliances produce warmth that is favored by rodents.

Q. Why is my rodent problem is always worst in the winter?  
A. Most rodents that live in the immediate outdoors seek to enter a warm dwelling in late October, as nights get colder. With high rate of reproduction, few mice that may have entered your house quickly will create infestation.
