Mice can at times be harmful rodents, damaging and eating crops, causing structural damages and spreading diseases through their parasites and feces. In North America, breathing dust that has come in contact with mouse excrements has been linked to hantavirus, which may lead to Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS).
Primarily nocturnal animals, mice compensate for their poor eyesight with a keen sense of hearing, and rely especially on their sense of smell to locate food and avoid predators.
With the subgenus, Mus, Mice actually refers to a small rodent. They eat and contaminate food supplies and also can transmit disease. Their gnawing activities can damage structures or property
Small nooks and cervices can be gnawed on and expand as an accessible entryway to your home.
Good housekeeping within buildings reduces shelter and food for house mice.
Seal all structural cracks and openings larger than 1⁄4 inch. Use wire screen or coarse steel wool that mice can’t chew through.
Ensure all doors, windows, and screens fit tightly.
Feed pets only the amount of food they will eat at a single feeding.
Keep all food storage and garbage containers sealed.
Thin or remove plants next to or climbing up buildings, since house mice are excellent climbers.
