Are Mice dangerous inside your House?
A short answer is- Yes. Several severe illnesses and diseases are directly linked with mice. An infection may spread to humans directly. An indirect way of transmission is when a flea or a mite feeds upon an infected mouse, the disease factors are transmitted to the flea, and humans get infected when bitten by a flea. In this way, a flea or a mite behaves like a vector of disease transmission.
