Protect Your Home and Business From Rodents.
Rodents Found In Washington State
Did you know Seattle is one of America’s most rat-infested cities, thanks to rats’ ability to reproduce as many as 15,000 offspring from a single pair of rats each year? Rodents pose a huge threat to Puget Sound homes and businesses, from the dangerous diseases they bring with them to the hazard they can pose when they nest in your walls and find the food stored in your pantry.
What Do House Mice Look Like?
The common house mouse is a rodent with small, beady eyes and ears that are large in proportion to the rest of its body. An adult mouse can weigh up to 1/2 an ounce and can be as long as 5-1/2 to 7-1/2 inches in length, including a tail that is 3 to 4 inches long. Mice range in color from deep gray to light brown.
Where Can I Find House Mice?
House mice commonly dwell in undisturbed storage areas, shoe boxes, and closets. Common signs that indicate a house mouse infestation include tracks, sightings, droppings, and chewed-on furniture or other materials. It may also be possible to smell if mice are present in a home by the musty odors they produce.
How Do House Mice Behave?
House mice can squeeze through tiny spaces that are as small as 1/4 of an inch wide. They are excellent climbers and jumpers. In fact, mice can jump 12 inches, reaching shelving and other above-ground areas. Mice also have powerful senses of smell, touch, hearing, and taste. They feed as frequently as 15 to 20 times per day, eating any available food but preferring oats, corn, and wheat.
