Brown or grey mice in BC are often brown or grey on the upper side, with lighter coloration on the underside of the body. Deer mice also have brown or grey coats, however, they have white bellies and tail ends. Both species have large ears in relation to their size; typical length ranges from 150mm to 170mm.
The unusually long tails of mice are another source of the body length. The house mouse’s tail typically doubles the body length, but the deer mouse’s tail accounts for less than half of the entire body size. Deer mice have white-colored feet, which differ from the house mouse’s pinkish-buff tints.

In living spaces, droppings and urine, as well as the detritus tracks rodents create on a daily basis, contaminate surfaces.
Deer mice may transmit and carry Hantavirus, a dangerous respiratory disease. This illness can be fatal in people and there is no known cure. Even the tiniest droplets of deer mouse feces in the air might infect others.
In general, mice contaminate ten times as much food as they consume. As a result, house mice may spread diseases such as salmonellosis, which causes diarrhea, fever, and vomiting, and parasites like fleas and mites that can cause dermatitis.
Mice in BC can also gnaw or bite through inorganic and generally indigestible materials like as books, plastics, aluminum cans, drywall, insulation, siding, and wallboards to cause damage to products, property, and the building’s structural integrity.
Deer mice keep food in holes near their dens and may hide caches in basements, attics, and crawl areas. As the rodents grow and become more active, nearby walls’ small openings may be gradually enlarged.
Mice can also chew through electrical wiring, resulting in building power outages, fire ignition, and costly repairs.
A mouse infestation may severely hurt a company’s reputation, contaminate and harm its food and facilities, as well as jeopardize its operations.
Mice in BC can breed at a rapid rate, making it difficult to entirely get rid of an infestation. House mice may produce litters of six young mice twice a year up to 12 times per year. Deer mice can have litters of up to 12 newborns once every four months.
After a month or two, newborns reach sexual maturity. Mice breed all year in the wild, which means a mouse infestation can quickly get out of control if left unchecked.

Mice in BC do not hibernate in the winter, but instead, seek shelter in nests to avoid the cold. Houses are an excellent way to keep warm during the chilly months since they offer a variety of hidden nooks, warmth, and food. Vents and other entryways into basements and attics provide pests easy access to nesting sites.
Deer mice are small, brown, or grey rodents with a white underside and feet. The tail of a deer mouse is around the same length as its tiny body, whereas the hind legs are longer than those in the front. These pests have bigger eyes and ears than house mice, which aids in their identification.
Deer mice and house mice are the most frequent species of mice in Canada. They come to your home looking for food, water, and warmth, particularly if the temperatures start to drop during the winter. Mice can be found in a variety of habitats, including subarctic tundra and arid deserts. Some mice like to burrow underground in the wild, while others live in nests on the surface. House mice like wooded areas, pastures, meadows, and farmland because they hide in bushes or other dense vegetation such as tall grasses, shrubs, and vines.
