The house mouse is the most common rodent pest in the Calgary Area. They can breed rapidly and adapt quickly to changing conditions.  House mice live in structures, but they can live outdoors.  When the weather chills, the house mouse is attracted to the warmth and active food sourcse in restaurants and homes.  Even without open doors they can enter a building through a hole the diameter of a pencil bringing in fleas, mites, ticks and lice.   Mice chew through and contaminate what they come in contact with and micro droplets of their urine left around a home can cause allergies in children
