Mice prefer cheese over other food

The most common myth about mice is that cheese is their favourite food. This myth, which has been repeated time and time again, implies that cheese is the preferred bait for traps when exterminating mice. However, mice enjoy a wide variety of foods and eat whatever they find in their path.

With the ability to forage for food up to 20 times a day, this small omnivorous rodent enjoys fruits, seeds and high-carb foods. In fact, peanut butter or pea butter should be used on mouse traps to attract them.

Mice only live in dirty environments

Of all the myths about mice, this is one of the most believable. In reality, mice can live anywhere, no matter how clean the place is. So if you think your well-kept home is a safe haven from these little rodents, think again.

In their search for food and warmth, mice will do anything to get inside homes, businesses and other establishments in any city. Fortunately, you can find an exterminator in Repentigny, Laval, Montreal, or any other region.
