The house mouse, deer mouse, and white footed mouse, are Michigan's smallest damage causing rodents, ranging in weight from ½ to 1½ ounces. The deer or white footed mouse will often invade buildings adjacent to fields and woodlands. Mice will nest in any dark, sheltered location. Nests are constructed of fibrous, shredded materials such as paper, cloth, insulation, or cotton and generally look like a loosely woven ball. Under optimum conditions mice breed year round. With ideal conditions, females may produce as many as 10 litters a year. At birth mice are quite undeveloped, weigh between 0.02 and 0.03 ounces and are nearly hairless. At about 3 weeks, the young begin short trips away from the nest and begin taking solid food. Though mice are active primarily at night, some day activity occurs. Mice are territorial and seldom travel more than 30 ft from their nest. A mouse can run up almost any vertical surface, if the surface is rough, like wood, brick, pipes, weathered sheet metal and wiring.
Food and water
Mice eat all kinds of food but would rather have seeds and grain. Sometimes mice will search for foods high in fat, proteins and sugars. Mice get much of their water from the moisture in their food.
Losses and damage due to mice
When mice infest stored food, the greatest loss is not what mice eat but what is thrown out because of real or suspected contamination. In six months, one pair of mice can eat about 4 lbs of food and deposit about 18,000 droppings. The amount of food contaminated by the mice is estimated to be 10 times greater than the amount eaten. Damage is not only to food, items stored in attics or garages may become damaged due to nesting habits. Urine and feces staining also cause much damage if left unattended. Mice also have the potential to transmit diseases and parasites to people and domestic animals.
Mouse spread diseases
Meningitis: Transmitted through contaminated food or dust.
Dermatitis and Rickettsial pox: Can be transmitted through mites which live on mice.
Ray Fungus and Tapeworms: Can be spread in mouse droppings.
Ringworm: Can be carried to humans by mice or contracted indirectly from mice through cats.
Trapping, Baiting, habitat modification, and exclusion is the most effective way to remove mice and keep them out. Trapping and removal of mice is possible but with mouse poison the mice may go off to die within the building, sometimes resulting in a fowl odder. Attics with mouse infestations should be inspected for possible bio hazard clean outs do to mouse droppings.
