What Do Mice Eat?


If you put out a piece of cheese, will you catch a mouse? Despite what cartoons might tell you, this isn’t their typical diet. As omnivores, mice eat both plants and meat, and house mice certainly aren’t picky. They’ll eat:

  • Chocolate—it’s a favorite!
  • Fruit
  • Seeds
  • Grain
  • Cereal
  • Dog Food
  • Baking supplies
  • Peanut butter
  • And when times are really bad, they’ll eat each other. Eek!

Mice are frequent eaters, snacking 15 to 20 times a day somewhere close to their nest. Make sure all the food in your home, inside and out, is locked up tight so they don’t have a limitless supply.
