Do Mice Prefer Cheese?

Do Mice Prefer Cheese?

Have you always heard that mice prefer cheese? When baiting a trap, do you first use cheese? Although many people believe this, the truth is that mice prefer chocolate, peanut butter, or bacon. Mice are not picky eaters though. They like to nibble on any food source available to them throughout the day.

House mice like to make your home their home, especially in the fall when outdoor temperatures become colder at night. This is why it is important to prevent them from coming inside your home.

Ways To Mice Proof Your House

  • Eliminate openings through which mice can enter. Seal cracks and openings around vents and pipes.

  • Make sure your windows, screens, and doors fit tightly.

  • Seal openings that are larger than 1/4″.

  • Store food in glass jars, metal containers, or resealable airtight containers.

What Our Customers Say

Sharon P, Waterproofing & Repair

We had extensive water intrusion that our inspector did not see. Thompson Brothers had to engage in grading, extensive digging, reinstallation of French drains, and install a new drainage field. The work was excellent. All personnel is polite, on time, and very professional. Highly recommend.
