Wildlife & Birds

Mice – The house mouse is a Commensal rodent always found associated with humans and their structures.  No wild populations of the house mouse exist.  Mice live in a very small area within a structure, typically moving less than 20 feet from their nesting site to find food and water and are territorial, keeping other mice out of their home range.  These small ranges accounts for why mice can build large numbers in the same structure.  They feed on a wide variety of food but grains and seeds are favored.  Trapping and baiting is often needed to bring large populations under control.  Good sanitation and exclusion is key to keeping mice from entering structures.
