House mice consume food meant for humans or pets. They contaminate food-preparation surfaces with their feces, which can contain the bacteria that causes food poisoning (salmonellosis).

Their constant gnawing causes damage to structures and property.

How Do I Know If I Have Mice In My House?

Droppings, fresh gnawing and tracks indicate areas where mice are active. Mouse nests, made from fine shredded paper or other fibrous material, are often found in sheltered locations.

House mice have a characteristic musky odour that identifies their presence. Mice are occasionally seen during daylight hours.

Although house mice usually feed on cereal grains, they will eat many kinds of food. They eat often, nibbling bits of food here and there.

Mice have keen senses of taste, hearing, smell and touch. They are excellent climbers and can run up any rough vertical surface. They will run horizontally along wire cables or ropes and can jump up 13 inches from the floor onto a flat surface. They can slip through a crack that a pencil will fit into (slightly larger than 1/4 inch in diameter).
