South Carolina Rodents – The House Mouse is a Reservoir for Disease

They are small and fast and can do a lot of damage to a home, plus they carry disease. We’re talking about mice and how these pests can infiltrate a home and make it their own. When this happens, the best course of action is contacting a Hilton Head mouse exterminator. At Island Pest Control, our Beaufort County pest control technicians are johnny-on-the-spot when it comes to eliminating these pesky rodents.

The Problem with Resident Mice

Out of the numerous mouse species, there are 3 considered to be the most common. These are the white-footed mouse, house mouse, and field mouse. Listed below are just a few of the reasons you’ll want to engage the services of a Hilton Head mouse exterminator.
