Mice are common household pets, but in the wild they can become very bothersome household pests. Mice can sneak into homes through a hole about the size of a dime in order to find food or shelter from their natural outdoor habitats. Once inside mice make their homes in quite spaces out of spare materials, such as string and insulation. Once inside a home their diet consists of any spare food, but in nature they typically east grains, seeds and sweets. Mice do not need to regular drink water because they obtain it from the moisture in their food.
Mice are usually brown or light grey in color but different species can be lighter or darker. They have pointed noses, small round ears, and long hairless tails. Most mice range from 3-4 inches in length, but some can grow to be bigger depending on the species.
