Mice

mouse found in florida home

Mice have large ears and a tail that is covered in a velvety layer of light fur. Their fur can be gray, brown, or black with lighter coloring on their bellies. Much like other rodents, mice have incisor teeth that continuously grow. To keep these teeth from overgrowing, a mouse must constantly gnaw on objects. House mice are one of the most common pests you may find in a home or business and can grow to be anywhere from 5 to 7 inches in length.

Why do I have mice?

Mice love to live near humans because of the ready supply of food our presence provides. Once mice enter a home or building and locate a supply of food, they may build nesting sites in basements, attics, crawl spaces, and voids in walls.

Are they dangerous?

A mouse is a dangerous, unwelcome houseguest because of the sheer number of diseases they can carry and transmit to people. They spread their urine, feces, and other pathogens throughout your home as they travel while searching for food. Mice can trigger allergy attacks in some people, and they may also introduce other pests such as fleas, mites, or ticks into your space.

In addition to their health risks, mice can damage your home or business as they chew on electrical lines, siding, building materials, and other parts of your kitchen or pantry. They may also chew on food or food containers, ruining or contaminating what’s inside.
