Mice can adapt to many different living conditions. They are typically found near human dwellings, since they feed on human food and shelter in human-made structures. They can also reproduce at a remarkably fast rate and cause extensive damage to buildings.
One of the most ubiquitous pests worldwide, house mice contaminate stores of food, cause structural and property damage, and spread diseases. The rodents have poor eyesight and heightened senses of smell, touch, and taste to compensate. Since they rarely travel outside an area of 10 to 30 feet once they establish nests, house mice are extremely familiar with their surroundings and notice when baits and strange objects appear in their habitats.

Common Mouse Problems in Houses
- Only rivaled by rats as the most destructive pest in homes, mice can cause huge issues in the home simply because of their presence. They dig up freshly planted grains, mutilate crops before harvest, gnaw through containers of food in warehouses, and even contaminate packages with their urine and droppings.
- As they spend a lot of time in dumpsters, sewers, and other filthy locations, house mice are often riddled with pathogens and secondary pests.
- House mice are also capable of serious structural damage. Their teeth grow rapidly, and they must gnaw to keep the length under control. This leads to the destruction of wall insulation, stored items like books and paintings, and damage to support beams and walls that worsens over time. House mice also chew on electrical wires, which can lead to electrical shorts and even fires.
