Other Names: Field Mouse, White-footed Mouse


Feasting on seeds, grains and fruit, Field Mice often aggravate farmers when they infiltrate grain silos and storage bins. These rodents are well-known carriers of the deadly Hantavirus which has caused numerous deaths in the United States.  As prolific breeders, they pose serious health risks for humans and pets.





Identify Damage

Droppings   |   Gnaw Marks   |   Sounds & Odors


Droppings, gnaw marks, and urine odors are just a few signs of mice activity.




Droppings are the most commonly encountered evidence of rodent activity. Even a small mouse infestation can produce literally thousands of droppings in a short period of time.


An adult deer mouse typically produces 50 to 75 droppings per day.  These fecal pellets are usually dark-colored, 1/4 inch in length, and pointed at both ends.
