House Mice Facts

Mice are small rodents, typically gray or brown with a pointy snout, small rounded ears, a body-length scaly tail and a high breeding rate. The common house mouse is the most well known species to infest homes looking for food and shelter. The house mouse is considered one of the most troublesome pests in the United States as they can thrive in a variety of conditions. Adult mice weigh about a ½ ounce and are 5 ½ to 7 ½ inches long, including a 3 to 4 inch tail. Mice are nocturnal and have poor eyesight. However, they have a keen sense of hearing and rely especially on their sense of smell to locate food and avoid predators. They are excellent climbers and build burrows for homes and to reproduce. A female mouse can give birth when they are only two months old, and they are able to have up to a dozen babies every three weeks. This means she could have as many as 150 offspring in a single year! Signs to look for if you suspect an infestation are droppings, fresh gnawing and tracks indicate areas where mice are active. They also have a characteristic musky odor and you will occasionally see them during the daytime.
