Pest World for Kids: Mice

Mice typically enter our homes between October and February, looking for food, water and shelter from the cold.

While these rodents may look cute, mice spread more germs than most people realize. Mice can actually carry as many as 200 human pathogens!

If you spot a mouse the house, it is safe to assume there are more or there will be soon. Female mice can give birth when they are two months old and are able to have babies 6 to 10 times per year.

Parents, teachers, and kids can find more mouse facts and information on rodent pest control at the official NPMA website.
