Do you have deer mice in or around your home?
Deer mice are small rodents that get their name from their similarity in appearance to deer. These mice are found throughout California and are common in urban and rural areas. Deer mice are small, with adults reaching a maximum length of about six inches. They have brown or grey fur, and their tails are long relative to their bodies.
The deer mouse is an omnivorous creature like many mice, but their diet consists mainly of seeds, fruits, and insects. They will also eat small mammals and birds if the opportunity arises.
