Mice are mostly active at night, but they can be seen occasionally during daylight hours.
A house mouse is an excellent climber and can run up any rough vertical surface. It will run horizontally along wire cables or ropes and can jump up 13 inches from the floor onto a flat surface.
Mice gnaw small, clean holes about 1-1/2 inches in diameter. Many times in kitchens you will find gnawing damage on the corner of boxes and paper, shredded for their nest.
Mouse droppings (feces) are about 1/8-1/4 inch long and rod shaped.
Do you have a mouse or a rat? A mouse’s head and feet are in proportion to its body size. A rat’s head and feet are proportionally larger than its body.
