Rodents 101: Part 1 Mice

Mar 20, 2017 -- Posted by : admin

Part 1: Mice

Mice are well adapted to thriving under a range of conditions. They are typically found in open fields, but can just as easily nest indoors in cluttered closets, behind walls or other compact spaces. Their small size makes eliminating all access points a challenge, often requiring a professional to inspect and seal the home up properly. They are also nocturnal, but will readily forage during the day.

The house mouse is far smaller than the Norway or roof rat. Adults weigh less than an ounce, and measure between five and seven inches fully grown. House mice have large ears and small black eyes, with fur that ranges from light brown to grey. Nests are commonly found in sheltered locations, and usually consist of shredded materials such as paper, cardboard and insulation.

Much like with controlling rats, controlling house mice also requires a combination of management strategies that are tailored to the behavior of the rodent. Our management methods are uniquely developed based upon the conditions of your home to provide the safest and most effective rodent control methods available.
