How Do You Control House Mice?
Looking for a new way to spell pest problem at your house? Try introducing the house mouse to the equation. The absolute biggest fear of many homeowners, mice can stay hidden for long periods of time, fitting through tiny openings here and there that you didn’t even know you had, and they’re some of the toughest pests in the world to eliminate from your home.
A Mouse Primer
Mice can live almost anywhere in your home. They often nest within the walls of a house, and they rarely leave those nests during daylight hours. As the population grows, though, you may see more of them all the time. You’ll likely hear gnawing and clawing sounds or even scurrying sounds late at night. You may also notice droppings or tracks in your kitchen or in other hidden areas.
Mice tend to reproduce extensively. They have litters of 5 to 6 just 21 days after mating. After just three weeks, they’re eating solid food, and by 10 weeks, they’re sexually mature and ready to breed again.
