Mice are one of the most common pests in the world. Residents are finding that mice have contaminated food containers, caused structural damage, and more! Find out how to identify mice problems in your home.


House mice are small critters that weigh about .5 ounces and are between 8 and 11 inches long including the tail. Their fur ranges in colors from light brown to black, with light colored bellies. House mice have pointed noses, tiny black eyes, large ears, and scaly tails. Capable swimmers, jumpers, and climbers; House mice are quite nimble.


The ideal habitat of house mice will involve a sheltered location around human activity. House mice can nest underground, but prefer to nest within manmade shelters, including houses, farms, and warehouses. They will build nests into a hidden area made of paper, burlap, and other fibrous materials.

Mice Damages

House mice will enter homes in hopes of finding a sufficient food supply and warm shelter. Our homes create the most ideal place due to the house mice diet. Preferring cereal, grains, nuts, fruits, plant seeds, roots, meats, and trash, our homes provide their desired buffet.

Once inside, mice create damage that accumulates and leads to potential fire hazards. Food containers are contaminated during their foraging. By them running across countertops and foraging through you and your family’s food, it can result in the spreading of diseases, including salmonellosis, leptospirosis, rat-bite fever, and tape worms.
