Find & Seal Mice Entry Points
If you think your home is impossible for a mouse to get into, think again. Mice have the ability to squeeze through a hole that is the size of a dime. Think about that, and then perform an exterior inspection around the perimeter of your home and you’ll be blown away with just how many access points you discover that mice can use to get inside of your house. Once inside of your home, mice will immediately begin searching for a reliable food source and an area where they can build a comfortable nest. Once a comfortable nest has been established, breeding will begin. A female mouse will go into heat every 4-5 days, gestation is 21 days long and a litter can be anywhere from 5-6 pups per litter. The average number of litters produced per female mouse is about 8 per year. After giving birth, the female can be in heat again within 24-48 hours. The young mouse is sexually mature as early as five weeks of age.
