WHAT DO I DO IF I HAVE MICE?
Many types of mice exist but the most common are the house mouse and the deer mouse. House mice tend to be more commonly found in urban and suburban developed areas while deer mice are more common in the rural areas. Mice are known for their “nibbling” of many different foods and they are naturally curious about new items placed in their environment. Mice reproduce every 19-21 days and a female mouse can have 5-10 litters a year. At 6 weeks old, the female house mouse is matured and is ready to reproduce. All rodents have poor eyesight and excellent hearing, touching, and smelling senses.
