The house mouse is the most successful rodent in adapting to live with people. It is found almost anywhere people are, feeding on human food, sheltering in human structures, and reproducing at a remarkable rate. It is the most troublesome and economically important vertebrate pest, contaminating untold millions of dollars worth of food, damaging possessions, and causing electrical fires with its constant gnawing.

Identifying A Mouse Problem

Appearance and Habitat

House mice weigh about .5 ounces and can grow between 8 and 11 inches long, including their tails. These rodents range in colors from light brown to black fur, and have light colored bellies. House mice have pointed noses, large ears, tiny black eyes, and scaly tails. These animals are able to climb, jump, and swim!

House mice nest underground or any other sheltered location, making your home the ideal place for house mice! Their nests are built from anything including paper, burlap, or other fibrous materials found around homes.


Mice are able to reproduce only 35 days after birth. A female mouse produces 5-8 offspring, and mice continuously breed regardless of season and climate. In one year a female can have 30-35 babies. This will create an extensive infestation in a very short amount of time.


Mice are one of the most destructive pests. They consume up to 3 grams of food each day and will contaminate pantries, food containers, and ruin crops before harvest! Since these dirty animals spend so much time in dumpsters, sewers, and other gross locations, they help transmit diseases and parasites by walking across counters alone. Mice have constantly growing teeth and must gnaw to keep the length under control. The gnawing habits will lead to structural damages and damages to personal items like books, paintings, and more!


When you have a mice infestation, the mess will be extensive. Droppings and urine will be all over your home and create a stink and terrible stains. House mice will pull apart insulation, newspaper, and other items for creating a nest. The more mice you have, the worse the mess will be.
