 Even though these mice are tiny, they make it up for the amount they eat. Mice eat about 15-20 times a day and while raiding your house at night they can make about 30 trips each night. That’s a lot of midnight snacks. This food has to go somewhere and as an unfortunate result, the tiny, but might mouse can leave about 50-100 droppings a day. Mouse droppings are tiny and look like tiny pellets or chocolate sprinkles. They are black in colour and quite oblong in shape. They can be seen everywhere and is a very obvious sign of mouse presence.

So, know you know a bit about our tiny friend here. Do you probably wonder how it gets inside? Mice are very agile rodents that can fit in tiny holes throughout the perimeter. Even as narrow as a weep vent or weep hole. Mice enter through a lot of entry points. These can include foundation gaps and openings, uncovered pipes, utility gaps, and exterior vents to gain access. Foundation gaps are gaps that are formed through years of wear and tear. These are exposed to the elements that can be often seen at the base of the house. If you have a free-standing house, take a walk to the side, and see how there are gaps at the very base. These are called foundation gaps.

So how do they get up there? Mice can climb and they do it well. They climb up downspouts, scale tree branches to get to the roof, or find another way by going from the inside to the upper floors. 

To get rid of mice, there are a few ways to go about this. You can buy traps, you can buy mouse poison, or you can catch and release them.
