What do mice look like?
The actual size of common house mice including their tails is approximately 5 to 8 inches long. They range in color from light brown to gray or black. Mice have slightly pointed muzzles and large ears.
Where do mice nest?
Outdoors, mice often nest in fields, tall grasses, dense overgrowth, and in shrubs.
Indoors, mice build nests in wall voids, ceilings, cabinets, appliances, attics, crawlspaces, and closets as well as other areas where there is less chance to be disturbed.
What are mouse nests made out of?
In order to build nests, mice will use whatever’s at their disposal. Outdoors, they’ll construct nests out of grass and other organic debris. When they nest inside, mice will use cardboard, insulation, clothing, and paper as well as other items pilfered from around the house or structure.
What do mice eat?
Mice are omnivores that will eat just about anything they can find including plant seeds, grains, and insects. Inside mice feed on almost any human food as well as pet food.
Are mice dangerous?
Not only are mice a threat to human health, spreading a number of serious illnesses through their feces, saliva, and urine, these rodents damage property. They chew on wires creating fire hazards, chew on furniture, drywall, and other building materials, and they contaminate areas with their feces and urine.
Unfortunately, mice also introduce ticks, fleas, and mites into homes and structures.
How did I get mice?
Mice are commensal rodents, meaning they rely in part on us for their survival. If your home provides food, water, and shelter AND they can get inside, the chances of having a mouse problem are quite high.
