‘Tis the Season…for Mice!

You’ve recently switched the A/C over to heat? Great! Mice love staying warm & cozy! Got some yummy holiday foods baking? Perfect! Mice are always looking for new sources of food. Did you also know…
  • Mice can fit through an opening the size of a dime? True story!
  • Mice are little gymnasts who can easily jump up to a foot in the air allowing to them to easily climb onto kitchen counters or gain access to pantries? Yep!
  • Despite their tiny bodies, mice eat 15-20 times per day? (#MustBeNice #NoGymNeeded) I kid you not! That’s one of reasons they like to build their nests super close to their food source.
  • Mice aren’t potty-trained? Ok, duh. You knew that. But I bet you didn’t know that a house mouse produces anywhere from 40-100 droppings per day AND they constantly give off microdroplets of urine as they travel around. (Silver lining? Mice don’t vomit…although you might after reading this “fun” fact!)
