Mice


Small field mice can be a problem in the residence halls in autumn, despite the preventative measures of Facilities.  To minimize or eliminate this problem, residents are asked to:

  • Clean up crumbs and spills as soon as they occur and remove left-overs from your room and dispose of them properly.  Your favorite foods–peanut butter, pizza, soda, french fries, and cookies–are also popular snacks for field mice.
  • Avoid storing or placing beverages and food on the window sills.  Spills into the heating/air conditioning unit will attract mice.
  • Store all snack foods in plastic storage containers.  Plastic bags and other wrappers do not deter mice.
  • Use a refrigerator to store as much of your food as possible.  Mice are resourceful and persistent, but they cannot open the refrigerator’s door.
Report any signs of mice to your RA or RHD.  The University will do whatever is necessary to alleviate this problem quickly.
