Have a House Mouse Problem?

Description

The House Mouse is a small mouse, with small eyes, a pointed nose, large ears, and a slender tail. Its underside is usually a lighter color.

Mice are opportunistic and adjust to what is readily available. They will eat just about anything and will make nests out of pieces of anything they can find. They reach sexual maturity within 2 months after birth and females can deliver litters of between 3 to 14 babies, as often as every 40 to 50 days.

Mice can carry diseases that are dangerous to humans and other animals. Some of those diseases can be deadly.

Color

Usually gray or light brown.

Size

2”-3”

House-Mouse

House mice are covered in short hair that is light brown or gray to black in color, with lighter bellies. Their ears and tail also bear hair, although much less than their bodies. Adult mice weigh approximately 12 to 30 grams and can grow up to 20 cm from the nose to the tip of the tail. Droppings are rod-shaped and pointed on both ends.

Control Advice

Seal openings to your home, cut back any tree branches that reach toward the roof of your home, clear away leaves and any dead foliage, and store firewood away from your house and off the ground.

Active Seasons

The House Mouse is most active in spring, fall and winter.
