One question that is commonly asked by people who suspect that they have a rodent infestation in their home or place of business is "what do mice eat?". Mice are omnivorous, meaning that they will eat either plants or meat, but they prefer seeds and cereal grains.
If you find evidence of something eating stored seeds (bird seed, for example) or other food items, it could be a sign that you have a mouse infestation in your home. Another common item that rodents love (especially rats) is dog food, and many times these items are easily accessible to the mice or rats because they are stored in your garage or outside shed.
However, a better indication of rodent problems is their droppings. While a mouse eating seeds or a rat eating dog food may be noticed, there is no mistaking the telltale droppings that they leave behind. To a trained pest control professional, these droppings will reveal whether you have mice or rats and the extent of the infestation.
If you suspect that mice or other rodents are eating food items in your home or place of business, then you should contact a professional immediately. These animals can transmit diseases, in addition to doing damage to your home (mice gnawing electrical wires could even start a fire!).
