When trying to control mice and rodents, it is extremely valuable to have a knowledgeable service professional inspect your property and locate all nesting sites and conducive conditions that promote mice activity.

Mice and Rodent Control Education
The house mouse is a small, slender rodent that has a slightly pointed nose and small, black, somewhat protruding eyes. They have large, scantily haired ears and a nearly hairless tail with obvious scale rings. A very adaptable species, the house mouse lives in close association with humans, and therefore is termed a “commensal” rodent.
House mice eat many types of food but prefer seeds and grain. They are not hesitant to sample new foods and are considered “nibblers,” sampling many kinds of items that may exist in their environment. A single mouse eats about 3 grams of food per day, but because of their habit of nibbling on many foods and discarding partially eaten items, mice destroy considerably more food than they consume.
House mice are mainly nocturnal, although at some locations considerable daytime activity may be seen. Seeing mice during daylight hours does not necessarily mean there is a high population present (although this usually is true for rats). Mice have poor eyesight, relying more on their hearing and their excellent sense of smell, taste, and touch. They are considered essentially colorblind.
Mice may breed year-round and a female may have 5-10 litters per year, therefore mouse populations can grow rapidly under certain conditions. During its daily activities, a mouse normally travels an area averaging 10-30 feet in diameter, seldom traveling beyond this area to obtain food or water. Mice constantly explore and learn about their environment. They memorize the locations of pathways, obstacles, food and water, shelter, and other elements in their domain.
