Habits And Behaviors Of Common House Mice

Mice are nesting rodents. They enter your home through the smallest of crevices in search of shelter. Once inside your home, they search for out-of-the-way areas of your home where they can collect nesting materials. They build nests in remote areas such as crawl spaces and attics. They may even burrow holes in your walls and build colonies of nests between rooms in your home.
A single nest can serve as a home to over a dozen mice. Once nests are full and the pups have matured to adulthood, they will branch out and build their own nests. Due to their quick, proficient breeding, nests tend to multiply, further perpetuating the infestation with more mouse pups that eventually turn into destructive adult mice.

You might have a mice problem and not actually see mice. These are nocturnal pests that avoid daylight. Instead, they opt to stay in their nests and only come out at night to forage for food. Our Pest-Pro technicians know the clues of a mouse infestation.

Why Mice In Your House Can Be So Problematic

Mice are dangerous pests whose presence in your home causes damage and danger. Their incisors never stop growing. That means they must file their teeth down by chewing whatever they find. In conjunction with foraging for food and gathering nesting materials, this causes untold damage to your personal possessions and the house's structure. 

Mice tend to cover nearly every bit of your home in search of food and building materials. That means they track disease and bacteria on surfaces and food items you will inevitably come into contact with and possibly ingest.

These rodents carry dozens of diseases, some of which can have fatal side effects. Hantavirus, for instance, can cause hantavirus syndrome, which can have deadly pulmonary side effects. A frightening fact is that you don't need to get bitten to contract diseases like hantavirus. It is more common to acquire this virus by inadvertently coming into contact with mice droppings, urine, or saliva.
