Deer mice are more often found in rural properties. They can easily destroy many materials, but they are most dangerous as they can spread the potentially fatal hantavirus. Though they don’t eat much, they contaminate your food stores with their urine and feces and may pose serious risks if they chew through power lines. It is best to have a plan when dealing with an infestation of deer mice.
Deer Mice Habitat
They can live in forests, grasslands and manmade structures easily. Mice typically make a burrow underground if they live out in the wild. Their burrow helps protect them from predators. They often seek refuge in garages, barns cottages, and homes.
Deer Mice Prevention
Good sanitation will also reduce food and shelter for existing mice and in turn make baits and traps more effective. Pay particular attention to eliminating places where mice can find shelter. If they have few places to rest, hide or build nests. Eliminate all openings through which they can enter a structure. All places where food is stored, should be made mouse-proof. All food should be stored in glass jars, metal canisters or other resealable airtight containers.
