Fun Facts: Mysterious Mouse
Mice and rodents will cozy up this winter inside 21 million homes in the United States alone. Yikes! Here are some there “fun” facts about these unwanted visitors.
Most rodents will enter sometime between October and February.
They are in search of warmth, food and water. (Although, truth be told, who isn’t constantly in search of this each winter? #Busted)
Mice eat 15-20 times EVERY. SINGLE. DAY! (How do they stay so tiny? I digress…)
Mice are little athletes! They are excellent climbers and swimmers…and can even jump one foot high into the air! (Olympics2020?)
In the wild, mice and rodents have many predators which causes their lifespan to average about 5 months. (In a no-foxes, n0-cats and no-snakes lab environment, they can live up to 2 years.)
Consider yourself warned: This one is gonna get gross. Mice produce 40-100 droppings every single day AND are constantly giving off micr0-droplets of urine. (Hey, don’t say I never warned you!)
A female mouse can birth up to a dozen babies every 3 months. Let’s do the math here — that’s as many as 150 babies in a single year!
Most importantly, did you know Blue Chip offers a rodent control program that will keep mice and other rodents out of your house year-round? Find more info on it here:
