Mice can invade your home and cause structural damage and spread disease.
Adult mice range from 3 to 5 inches long with the tail length being as long as the body. On average, a mouse weighs 1/2 of an ounce. House mice are brown or gray-black, with a light colored underbelly. They have a pointed nose with large ears. The clearest indicator of mouse infestation is droppings; these are 1/8 – 1/4 of an inch and rod shaped. Another sign is gnawing; with their strong buck teeth they are able to chew through almost anything.
Why are they in my home?
- Mice do not hibernate; when temperatures drop they seek a warm place to live
- Unfortunately, they are able to fit into spaces as small as 1/4 of an inch
- With their heightened senses, they can be attracted to the smell of food in your home
- With their excellent mobility, mice can climb up vertical surfaces and jump up almost 13 inches
Are Mice a danger to my family?
- Mice can spread diseases such as salmonellosis and dysentery by contaminating your food and utensils with their urination and droppings
- Mice produce about 50 droppings throughout the day
- A mouse has no control over its bladder; that means it will urinate anywhere, anytime – like in your cupboards, utensil drawers, the pantry, and so on
- As mentioned above, mice will chew on almost anything. They have been known to damage electrical wires, and cause structural damage to homes
