I own 3 guinea pigs and they have a 2x8 grid cage. In the past few months my family and I have been getting mice coming into our house. They first appeared to be downstairs which my room is upstairs. We set non kill mouse traps all around but they're still here. They ended up making there way into my room and somehow got into my piggies cage. I found a poop in the corner where I like to call there kitchen. This morning at 4 in the morning one of them, fat baby, had this random never like before loud wheek. It woke me up and made sure they were all alr, and perhaps thats when the mouse went into there cage and spooked her. There cages are on plastic shelf maybe a foot from the ground with wood platforms supporting the cage. There is Coloplast on the sides facing the wall that are zip tied to the cage to stop hay and poop from falling behind there cages. In the corner the Coloplast there has 2 tint bite marks obviously from a mouse... sorry I'm not to good at summarizing. I'm concerned the mise may transfer diseases to my piggies. Recently my younger guinea pig passed away from a UPI and I couldn't bear loosing another. Does anyone know of any illnesses and there signs that mice can transfer to other animals? Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm not very old and my mom isn't keen in doing much to get rid of the mice as she doesn't really care. So I am very limited to what I can do, but thank you very much to anyone who has suggestions or can help.
