The house mouse is the most successful rodent in adapting to live with people. It is found almost anywhere people are, feeding on human food, sheltering in human structures, and reproducing at a remarkable rate. It is the most troublesome and economically important vertebrate pest, contaminating untold millions of dollars worth of food, damaging possessions, and causing electrical fires with its constant gnawing.

Mice Description


Mice are small and nimble critters that weigh about .5 ounces and grow to be 8-11 inches long, including their tail. Due to their poor eyesight, mice have a heightened sense of smell, touch, and taste to compensate. Mice characteristics include:

  • Pointed Noses
  • Tiny Black Eyes
  • Large Ears
  • Scaly Tails


Mice create nests underground or another sheltered location wherever this is human activity. These animals most favorite place to nest is inside and around homes, farms, and other manmade structures. Mice are great climbers, jumpers, and swimmers so virtually no area is out of reach for them. Paper, burlap, and other fibrous materials are collected and used to build nests. Mice rarely travel outside an area of 10 to 30 feet once a nest is established. Making them extremely familiar of their surroundings.

Mice Control Problems


Mice enter homes in search of food and shelter. The food in your home, including cereal, grains, nuts, fruits, plant seeds, roots, meat, and trash, will serve as quite the buffet for these critters. The central heating in homes will give mice a warm and cozy home for the winter months.


Mice will create extensive damages in a short amount of time. Their numbers will multiply so quickly that a couple mice in your home can turn into a large infestation in no time. These rodents consume up to 3 grams of food a day, but the real issue comes from their nibbling habits.

Inside, mice will chew on floorboards, furniture, books, and more. Leaving behind unsightly gnaw marks. Diseases are transmitted while they forage for food and run across counters.

Outside the mice will wreak havoc on your crops and garden by digging up freshly planted grains, mutilate crops before harvest, and more!
