House Mice often will eat fruits, seeds and grains. They eat both plants and meat, but the house mouse will eat almost anything it can find.
Mice are associated with a number of health risks. In fact, mice are known to spread more than 35 diseases. These diseases can be spread to humans directly, through handling of live or dead rodents, through contact with rodent feces, urine, or saliva, and through mouse bites. Diseases carried by mice can also be spread to humans indirectly, through fleas, ticks, or mites that have fed on an infected mouse.
