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.
Usually gray or light brown.
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.
The House Mouse is most active in spring, fall and winter.
