Danger Signs

Mice are usually nocturnal, so if you think you may have a mouse infestation the typical signs to watch out for are:

  • Mouse droppings (thin, spindle shaped approx. 5mm long).
  • Smears - grease marks from the mouse body as it is repeatedly brush up against objects.
  • Damaged stock and damage to the fabric of premises.
  • Nesting material — shredded insulation, cardboard, wood, plastics etc.
  • Distinctive smell - mice leave an ammonia-like smell, that is particularly strong in enclosed areas.

Potential Harm

  • Mice are known to spread infections such as Salmonella, Hantavirus and Weil's disease.
  • Damage to stock and buildings. Mice have sharp teeth and can gnaw through cables, plastic and wooden doors.
  • Contamination of foodstuffs and goods. On the underside of mice, the wet fur soaked in urine can transmit diseases to work surfaces, table tops or anywhere the mouse has climbed.

Business Consequences

  • Damage — to goods, foodstuffs and your health and hygiene reputation. Any Pest Control issues will have a negative effect on your Scores on the Doors food hygiene rating.
  • Alarm — immediate loss of customer and employee trust.
  • Cost — can be considerable. Temporary business closure may be necessary.
  • Legal — failure to comply with legislation, including Health and Safety at Work etc. Act (1974) and Food Safety Act (1990).

Immediate Steps to Take for Mouse Control

Use biocides safely. Always read the label and product information before use. Radar contains the active ingredient carbon dioxide.
