HOUSE MOUSE
Adult house mice vary in color from light brown to grey.  Under optimum conditions, house mice will breed year round.  While mice are active primarily at night, some daytime activity does occur.

Mice tend to travel over their entire territory daily, covering the same route over and over again.  Mice have relatively poor vision and are color blind.  They rely on smell, taste, touch and hearing to detect and escape danger.

It is difficult to mouse proof a home or building without understanding the rodent's capabilities.  A mouse can jump 12 inches vertically and 8 feet horizontally.  They can travel for some distance hanging upside down and they are very capable of swimming.  The house mice feeds on a variety of foods, (cereal, nuts, chocolate, butter), and their two main feeding times are dusk and just before dawn.  A mouse usually does not travel more than 30 feet from its' nest.  Mice droppings are usually the first signs of evidence that mice are infesting.

United Spraying Service has years of experience with controlling invading mice.  We initially inspect the premises for anything that may be attracting mice and for any entrances that may need sealing.  Our elimination involves the successful placement of baits and traps.
