Mice in your home can spell disaster for the cleanliness and sanitation of your home. They typically hide in basements and in crawlspaces which give them ample opportunity to find their way into your nice warm vents. There they contaminate the air you breathe in your home with feces and urine. As much as mice eat this will occur often.
What do mice eat?
If you believe what you see in cartoons, you would think that mice eat cheese. Actually, they like to eat fruits, seeds and grains. They are omnivorous, which means they eat both plants and meat, and the common house mice will eat just about anything it can find. In fact, if food is scarce, mice will even eat each other.
Mice have voracious appetites. They eat around 15 to 20 times per day, so they build their homes nearby places that have readily accessible food sources.
