Like a typical human teenager, mice are undeniably nocturnal and voraciously hungry. They become more active at night and are always looking for food sources. That’s where the similarities between the lovable adolescent and the less-than-adorable house mouse end.
Habits of the typical house mouse merit nothing less than an eviction notice. A mouse will travel no more than 30 feet in diameter from its home during daily activities – meaning that the little tiny paw prints in your kitchen came from a mouse living just a few feet away. What do they eat? It’s safe to say a mouse is perfectly content dining on any food consumed by humans and their pets.
Mice communicate with urine. A dominant male mouse may mark his territory with thousands of microdroplets each day.
Mice can survive long periods when water is scarce. Most of their water requirements can be met by the food they consume.
Mice do not have a need to go outside and be exposed to predators.
