House mice will live in any room were food is stored, prepared or handled. Mice normally stay within a radius of 10-25 feet of their nest, and in any convenient space within walls, cabinets or furniture. Mice make their nests out of shredded paper, cloth or leaves. Normally there will be only one opening in the nest. The nest will often be found between bags, cartons, or stored material. Mice will eat almost any food man eats. Mice are nibblers and their feeding habits are best described as light and erratic. They may eat small amounts of a variety of available foods at many times during a 24 hour period.

House mice have dusky gray fur with a small slender body. Their tails are semi-naked and about as long as the head and body combined. Their ears are moderately large and very predominant. Weight is about 1/2 oz. Their young resemble the adults but they're smaller in size. There are usually 5-6 young in a litter and they produce about 8 litters a year. Their average life cycle is about 1 year.
The best way to get rid of mice infestation is to trap and remove house mice. This usually takes 1 to 3 weeks to eliminate the population. We maintain prevention using baiting management techniques in the crawlspace and other inaccessible areas of the building.

"Chuck's pest control does a great job. A year ago we had a problem with ants coming into the house. We tried different products which did no good and then called Chuck. They are very professional and came out several times during the year to re-treat and make sure we weren't having any more problems. Haven't seen an ant in the house since..."
