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.

Mice Damage

Mice are known to be one of the most destructive pests. Wherever house mice are present, you can count on some type of damage to the property.

Mice need to constantly chew and gnaw on materials in order to keep the length of their ever-growing incisors under control. Mice will create damages by:

  • Digging up freshly planted grains
  • Gnawing through food containers
  • Contaminating cupboards/kitchens with their urine and droppings
  • Spreading diseases
  • Gnawing and causing structural damage

Mice Kitchen Damage

Mice will consume about three grams of food each day. While they forage through your kitchen looking for some cereal, grains, nuts, fruits, plant seeds, roots, meat, and trash, they will also contaminate your home with dangerous diseases and parasites that can be transmitted to you and your pets.

Mice Structural Damage

House mice teeth grow rapidly, so the rodents must gnaw to keep the length under control. Mice will destruct wall insulation, books and paintings, support beams, and electrical wires.

Keeping Mice Out

Your mice are gone. Now what?  Critter Control can help keep mice out of your home for good. Our quality exclusion and repair methods provide a strong and durable barrier against future entry attempts. We will thoroughly inspect your home and property to make sure all potential entry points are addressed.

Health Concerns from Mice

Mice contaminate homes with their excrement and urine and are carriers of disease. Chewed electrical wiring poses a threat of fire or electrocution. House mice can carry diseases and parasites, including:

  • Salmonellosis
  • Leptospirosis
  • Rat-bite Fever
  • Tapeworms
  • Fleas
  • Ticks

Mice Facts

Mice can have 5 to 10 litters each year, leading to an increase in population very quickly. Each litter can contain 3-14 young and breeding occurs throughout the year. No wonder mice infestations grow so quickly!

Not sure if you have mice? Look for gnaw marks near floorboards and droppings on counters and in dark, sheltered corners. If you are hearing noises in your walls, keep in mind that mice will scratch in walls and ceilings as they look for food and shelter.
