Get To Know Your Unauthorized Occupant: Mice!

Imagine walking into your kitchen after a long day at work, only to be greeted by a furry little intruder darting across the floor. Or maybe you’re sitting on the couch watching TV when you see a flash of movement out of the corner of your eye. Mice are small, pesky creatures that can be a real nuisance in a home like a mice infestation

Not only do they contaminate food, but they can also cause structural damage as they gnaw through wires and insulation. When dealing with a mice infestation, it’s important to take action quickly to get rid of these pests. This blog will review some information about mice and how to get rid of them.

Get Familiar With Your Tenant

Mouse Behavior & Cycle

The mice’s behavior and life cycle are important to understand when getting rid of them. Mice are nocturnal creatures of habit and will often return to the same area if they find food or water.

Where Do Mice Live?

Mice generally live in small areas and build their nests close to a food source. Nests are usually made out of paper or other soft materials. Check for small piles of shredded paper or fabric if you suspect you have mice.

Types Of Mice In America

The different types of mice in the U.S. include:

  • Deer Mice
  • House(Brown) Mice
  • White-footed Mice

These are the different types of mice that can invade your home.

How Do Mice Spread?

Mice reproduce quickly and can have litters of up to 12 newborn mice, called “pups.” Pups are born blind and deaf and are fully grown in about six weeks. Mice can have several litters annually, so an infestation can quickly get out of hand.

The Damage Mice Cause

Mice are not only a nuisance, but they can also cause damage to your home. Mice will gnaw on wires and insulation, which can create fire hazards. They also contaminate food and spread diseases.
