Mice are rodents typically brown, grey, or white with long whiskers and triangular snouts. They have a long, hairy tail and large floppy ears. Mice can be found practically anywhere in the world, in a variety of climates. Adaptable creatures with large appetites, mice roam around looking to eat 15 to 20 times a day. If you’re discovering droppings in your home, finding holes in your walls, or hearing scratching and squeaking noises, you may have a mice infestation.
Mice reproduce and give birth at alarming rates, which is why it’s important to take care of infestations before they can intensify and become massive problems. A female mouse can have as many as a dozen baby mice in just three weeks, which means she could produce as many as 150 offspring in just one year. The longer the mice are in your home, the more damage they can cause, costing you a lot of money in repairs and possibly exposing your family to health risks such as salmonella.
