The house mouse is a small rodent with light brown to dark fur and a white belly. The mouse lives in wooded areas and fields but seeks out a place with more shelter and warmth during the winter. Once these mice make their way inside they rarely decide to leave on their own and can cause damage with their chewing and spread disease. House mice are famous for their ability to reproduce at a rapid rate.
Common signs of these rodents is their droppings, which are small, pointed cylinders. They often have bits of hair embedded in them from the mouse grooming itself. Other signs are footprints, the mice themselves, and shavings from where the mice chew on objects. Rodent’s teeth never stop growing and they must constantly chew in order to file them down.
