What food attracts mice?

So What food attracts mice? Mice are omnivorous scavengers; they need to eat regularly, and they will eat whatever they can find. Most people know that leaving food exposed where mice can get to it is one of the best ways of drawing them onto your property, but not everybody realises that mice are much more attracted to certain foods than others. Anyone who has kept pets for an appreciable amount of time knows that mice are a constant threat to anyone who stockpiles food in their homes. With many people buying more groceries than usual thanks to lockdown, knowing which foods mice find the most alluring can help to avoid inadvertently luring them into their homes.

What food attracts mice?

Large stores of any food will attract pests, including mice, rats, and cockroaches, but mice and other rodents are particularly fond of dried goods, including oats, rice, pasta, and cereals. These foods are the most similar to those that mice eat in the wild, where their preferred diet consists of fruit, seeds, and nuts. Despite being dry and hard, mice have no trouble devouring as much of these food types as they can get their paws on.

Mice are also attracted to food that is very high in sugar and provides them with as much energy as possible. Things like dried fruits, seeds and nuts, jams, and other savoury snacks are magnets for hungry mice.

If you are going to stockpile any of the food types outlined above in your home, you need to ensure you can keep them sealed away where mice won’t be able to get at them. Avoid storing them in sheds, attics, or garages. Keeping your food anywhere rodents like to nest is just asking for trouble; you want to keep all your stored food well out of their reach.

We thought we had bedbugs but could find no evidence apart from what we thought were bites. I called Bon Accord and Gabriel was there within a couple of hours. He told us we had carpet beetle. Finding the evidence and showing us photos of the skin reaction which was exactly what we had. He advised and returned at a time to suit us to spray which was done thoroughly and efficiently. No sign of the little critters returning. Thank you Gabriel.

Top-notched pest control service!! Went above and beyond to eradicate the rats from our property. Gabriel even offered to further investigate the infestation issues for our neighbours. We found him to be extremely professional and easy to work with. We highly recommend Gabriel to anyone in need of pest control.

Gabriel was absolutely wonderful, a real life saver when I found a mouse by my bed at 10pm. He came in less than an hour and was able to catch the mouse and put my mind at rest so I could go to sleep! Highly recommend, fab service and lovely people.

Gabriel turned up with an hours notice one evening and immediately identified the issued. He works efficiently and professionally throughout with timely follow-ups to ensure the problem was resolved. Once completed he was kind enough to continue to check in to see that the issue had gone. Having had Rentokil previously that spent two years doing very little this was a complete breathe of fresh air and solved the problem in less than two weeks. We are grateful and would highly recommend his services.

We were lucky to have found Bon Accord, they responded very fast to our request and Gabriel was very helpful and informative. He made several visits and did his absolute best until the mice problem we had was gone. Highly recommended.
