What Do Mice Eat?

what do mice eat in your home or business gga pest management

Mice eat various foods and crumbs found around your home or business. These sneaky rodents will search around your property for any easy supply of food available to support their nests. Mice are also fond of warm spaces like attics, wall cracks, and kitchens. So, if these areas of your property also provide them easy access to food (like the kitchen!), then there’s a high chance of an infestation.

What Do Indoor Mice Eat?

House rodents have adapted and will eat just about anything they can find, though they prefer snacks loaded with carbs. Rodents have tiny bodies and move fairly fast, so they generally like to eat foods that can be broken down easily to use for energy. For example, a mouse in your home would probably prefer snacking on some peanut butter over cheese.

Mice are fond of sweets, so they may decide to bite on sugary sweets such as chocolate, fruits, or candy. However, no matter what is actually in front of them, rodents will usually take a chance on eating just about anything.

The more “urban” mouse when gained access to your home or business, will eat almost anything that is left out, including:

  • grains
  • meats
  • cereal
  • oats
  • rice
  • fruit
  • corn
  • seeds
