Which means, they can destroy your wires, clothes, furniture, and everything they think worthy of destroying, faster. It has been found out that one tiny house mouse can excrete 3,000 microdroplets of pee per day. This pee contains a large group of infectious pathogens such as bacteria and viruses.
