Mice Nuisance Concerns:

  • Can squeeze into 1/4 inch openings, giving many entry points
  • They love to nest in dresser drawers, closets, garages, kitchens, pantries, bathrooms, furniture, etc. They will gnaw on anything, including electrical wires, books and furniture.
  • Carry diseases such as salmonella

Mice Removal:

  • APCS will set up bait stations, using anything from blocks, pellets to seeds
  • Do not vacuum or sweep droppings—can spread bacteria
  • Cleanup is offered.

General Information about Mice:

  • Nocturnal
  • Usually will only travel no more than 30 feet away from their nest or food
  • Have 5-10 litters per year consisting of 5-6 babies per litter

Mice can contaminate food-preperation areas with their feces and can cause severe damage to structures.
