Facts about Mice In Your Home

Mice are commensal rodents which means, " Living with humans". The problem is, we don't want them to be commensal, we want them outside. This is why we spend over one hundred and twenty million dollars a year on rodent control in the United States.
Once in the home, mice set up shop close to food. This usually means your kitchen is transformed to a Hilton Hotel over night. Mice will only travel about 10 to 25 feet from their home, which is why they can be found mostly in the kitchen. They will also snuggle up to a room, such as the bed room, if you are a bed snacker. Mice are also very active, if they find a snack, they will travel back and forth to this snack about 20 times a night. Mice are terrific at gnawing things and they also like to make a mess with their droppings. It is important to act quickly if you suspect a mouse problem in the home as they can reproduce e quickly and a few mice can grow to large numbers fairly fast. If there is one fact to remember out of all the facts about mice and that is they need to be eliminated from your home once they are found. Happy hunting!
