Mice or House Mouse

Mice or House Mouse

About this project

The house mouse is probably the most common rodent pest in most parts of the world. In the Bay Area, mice not only live inside, but outside near foundations; in shrubbery, weeds, crawl spaces, basements, or garages. Mice eat almost anything, but prefer cereal grains, seeds, or sweet material requiring very little water to survive.

When the colder months hit they move inside nesting closer to a food supply. These nest are found in many places including: in walls, ceiling voids, storage boxes, drawers, under major appliances, or within the upholstery of furniture.  Mice are excellent climbers, jumping up to a foot high; however they are color blind and can’t see clearly beyond six inches. Remember the children’s song “Three Blind Mice?”

Day & Nite Pest Control specializes in the mice or house mouse treatments. If you reside in the Bay Area and think you have a mice problem, Contact us today!


Distinguishing Characteristics:
Adult mice are small and slender and about 1-2 inches long, excluding tail. They have large ears, pointed nose and small eyes. The tail is as long as the head and body combined. The fur color varies, but it is usually a light grey or brown, but could be darker shades.
