The House Mouse is usually the most common mouse in Tennessee, having short grayish-brown fur on the back with a lighter color on the belly. These small rodents have large ears with a mostly hairless tail. The house mouse is omnivorous feeding on anything from seeds to human food.
Problems and Damage
Lawns provide meals for mice, they then use homes or buildings for shelter. Mice can enter through vents around the home, gaps at the roof line, or any space large enough to force their way inside. When mice make their way into your home, a single mouse can leave behind in excess of 50 droppings per night which quickly contaminates the area. Mice will also chew on electrical wires, putting households at risk of electrical fires. Mice are known to carry Salmonellosis, Leptospirosis, and LCM. However, not all mice carry diseases but any scratches or bites should be treated immediately by a medical professional.
