Pest Control / Just a House Mouse!

Adult mice are about 3 1/2 inches long and their tail is close to the same length. They only weigh 1/2 - 1 oz. Mice can run along beams, pipes and wires and adapt to new places and foods easily.  They usually will not stray more than 12 ft - 30 ft from their nest.  A house mouse can climb well, are good swimmers and can jump 12 inches.  They can crawl through openings as small as a 1/4 inch wide.
If you decide to attempt to catch it yourself  please wear gloves when disposing of the critter. That "just a house mouse" is a rodent that carries diseases. You can refer to my blog " Rats & Mice "Oh My! for more information or rodent disease.
