Out of all the different types of rodents that pester humans, the mouse is most commonly encountered and causes the most damage to businesses. A single mouse can make up to 200 trips to food sources each day, making contamination of food meant for humans and the spread of disease very likely. These curious, persistent creatures may be small, but they can have a huge impact on your operation.
Mice can easily find their way indoors, squeezing through gaps as small as a quarter of an inch (6 mm). We highly recommend contacting a professional pest control company at the first sign of activity. At the rate that mice reproduce, a small mice issue can quickly turn to a large problem and headache for your business.

Practicing good sanitation is essential for keeping mice away. Since a mouse needs access to food to survive, keeping your property clean can prevent your indoor environment from becoming attractive to mice.
Here are some tips to help prevent problems with mice:
Store food in rodent-proof containers and clean up food and beverage spillage.
Eliminate garbage piles indoors and outdoors, including discarded boxes or storage containers that could provide potential harborage areas.
Clean area around dumpsters and trash cans. Also, ensure lids are tight fitting and kept closed.
Regularly cut grass and vegetation around the property.
Seal any holes or cracks in the foundation or around pipe and electrical chases. Also, ensure there are no gaps over 1/4" around doors.
Keep doors closed as much as possible and keep areas near doors free of items that may become temporary mouse harborages.

Generally mice are omnivores. They will eat whatever they can find inside a building. In the wild, they will eat fruit, grains, seeds and other vegetation – meaning they have even been known to damage crops. Generally, mice like food high in carbs but will eat meat, insects and even other mice.
Mice generally have a lifespan of up to 18 months.
Female mice deliver a litter of about 5-12 pups. They can produce up to 300 baby mice over the span of their adult life.
There have been a number of serious illnesses that have been attributed to mice, as well as the parasites they carry. Some of these diseases include: Hantavirus, Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis, Salmonella and Lyme disease.
