Deer mice are nocturnal pests, using nightfall to forage for seeds and other food. The rodents don’t hibernate, but they often stay inactive in winter months. To prepare for the dropping temperatures, they commonly hoard food and gather in groups. Unlike some other similar pests, deer mice are capable swimmers.

The pests are characterized by their two-tone fur and tails. Their coats are often gray or brown on top, while their underbellies are white. The same goes for their tails, which have a noticeable separation between the two shades. Commonly, their tails are equal to or longer than the entire length of their bodies.
These rodents primarily feed on seeds, fruits, and insects. When sources are limited, deer mice will also eat fungi and carrion. The pests store food in bulk within tree cavities and underground holes.
The deer mouse is found throughout most of North America, occupying forests, fields, and farmlands. Since they typically nest in holes below ground or under leaf litter and debris, the pests aren’t often abundant in busy city settings. However, cold weather and the fear of predators drive deer mice into residential areas, where they enter homes, sheds, and other buildings.
