To the point, the friendly experts at World Class Wildlife Removal will come out to remove the mice from your home. Mice are honestly not that scary, but we admit, it is frightening to see a mouse run through your house. Educating you on the type of mouse that could be in your Florida home is our goal. Then we can come up with a plan to be rid of the vermin once and for all.
There are several types of mice in Florida. What kind you find in your home largely depends on where you live and the “attractiveness” of your home to the mice in question. Let’s begin with discovering seven types of mice in Florida divided into two categories.
The most common mice are the ones homeowners see the most. They are quite invasive and adaptable to any living condition. Perhaps the most common is the House Mouse.
If you have ever been to a Florida beach and see the warning signs to stay off the dunes, you will know why after reading this section on beach mice. You see, beach mice promoting the health of our coastal dunes and beaches. The burrows they create help aerate the dune substrate and encourage deep rooting of dune plants. The deep roots of the dune plants keep our beautiful beach sand and coastline in place!
Additionally, beach mice eat the coastal plants, including seeds and flowers, which disperses these seeds promoting new growth and stabilize the dunes, making them stronger during storms. Furthermore, the beach mice eat insects that damage coastal plants. So, it is fairly obvious why we need these cute, tiny critters to stick around.
Now, for the bad news. Beach mice are on the endangered lists, according to NASA.gov,
“All of the subspecies of beach mice, with the exception of the Santa Rosa beach mouse, are listed by both the state and federal government as either threatened or endangered. The biggest threats to beach mice’s survival is loss of habitat due to human development and tropical storms and hurricanes. Additional threats are habitat degradation and fragmentation and predation from feral and domesticated cats.”
In response, World Class Wildlife has put together these identification descriptions for you to learn about the beach mice and help protect them.
The best policy here is to not handle mice invasions on your own if you live near the beaches. Have the professionals inspect the area and let you know if you have a common mouse or a beach mouse in the home. Then the mice can be dealt with appropriately.
