House mice are avid swimmers, jumpers, and climbers who are very aware of their surroundings so are wise to many DIY attempts at pest control.

  • Some easily implemented and helpful activities you can do as a homeowner include cleaning homes regularly, sealing cracks in building foundations, eliminating clutter in attics and basements, keeping food stored in airtight and rodent-proof containers, and removing collections of debris in yards.
  • Act swiftly if you hear scratching noises in your walls or ceiling, a mouse problem can get out of hand if not dealt with in a timely manner.

Some of the house mouse's favorite places to nest are, in fact, in and around human homes and other manmade structures. Read on to learn more about common mouse damage.

Common Mouse Damage

Rivaled only by rats as the most destructive pest, house mice almost always cause some kind of damage to property or people where infestations are present.

  • Mice can eat about three grams of food each day, but destroy much more than that due to snacking.
  • Mice dig up freshly planted grains, mutilate crops before harvest, gnaw through containers of food in warehouses, and even contaminate packages with their urine and droppings.
  • As they spend a lot of time in dumpsters, sewers, and other filthy locations, house mice are often riddled with pathogens and secondary pests. The rodents have the capacity to spread salmonellosis, leptospirosis, rat-bite fever, and tapeworms and may carry fleas, ticks, and similar parasites in their fur. Humans can get diseases from mice by coming into contact with or accidentally consuming their urine and feces.
  • House mice are also capable of serious structural damage. Their teeth grow rapidly, and they must gnaw to keep the length under control. This leads to the destruction of wall insulation, stored items like books and paintings, and damage to support beams and walls that worsens over time. House mice also chew on electrical wires, which can lead to shorts and even electrical fires.
