Facts About Mice

Posted on October 14th, 2019 by Knockout Pest

If you’ve ever had mice in your house, you may think you are an expert on them. However, there are plenty of little-known facts about mice. Keep reading to find out what they are. 

Mice Eat Frequently

You may have assumed that mice do not eat a lot because they are so tiny and compact. This could not be further from the truth! In fact, mice eat anywhere from 15 to 20 times a day. Talk about a healthy appetite!

Mice Can Squeeze Through Small Openings

When you discover a mouse in your house, you may have wondered how they entered your home in the first place. This is due to the fact that mice can squeeze themselves through cracks that are the size of a dime! To keep mice out of your home, seal any openings with caulk and fill gaps with steel wool.

Mice Are Good Climbers

Not only are mice good at squeezing through small openings, they are also good climbers. Since mice eat so frequently throughout the day, you might spot a mouse climbing up your kitchen cabinets in search of food. Store food in tightly sealed plastic containers to prevent mice from eating your next meal!
