Mice are small mammals and the most common invaders of the home. There are a number of varieties of mice, with the house mouse being the most common. They are prolific breeders, with their numbers increasing at an alarming rate in favorable conditions. Mice reach maturity in about six weeks, and can have a litter of up to 10 babies at a time, 8 to 10 times a year. Mice are good climbers and can commonly be found climbing exterior walls to enter homes by way of the roof line. Mice will store large quantities of food in inaccessible areas, and can be contributors to stored product pest infestations. Mice can carry a number of pathogens and spread disease through their urine and feces.

The local environment plays a large part in the possibility of mouse infestation. Conducive conditions include landscaping, wooded areas, nearby fields, and sometimes sanitation.
Mice are reclusive and will go to great lengths to remain undetected. The best form of detection is by a thorough inspection for droppings, urine stains, and active trails.
Sealing of openings has some effect, but removing exterior harborages around the perimeter of the home will yield the best results.
Mice can squeeze through any hole the size of a dime or larger…. they will migrate between units and travel to areas where they are not harassed.
Most rodenticides on the market today will go inert once ingested by the rodent. Only a few baits have acute toxicity that can be hazardous to pets. It is important to use only qualified pest control experts to place rodenticides in the proper places in order to protect pets and small children. Rodent baits should always be placed inside tamper resistant stations to protect non-target animals.
