A Crash Course On Deer Mice

Origins

While deer mice  are generally found all over the world in arid and desert regions, they are believed to be endemic to this area. However, some deer mice can be found in grassland and forest. They more or less inhabit every arid desert and scrublands excluding the  Southeastern United States and some coastal areas of Mexico.

The Life Cycle

Deer mice can have many litters in a year. Although, it is common for these mice to not reproduce during the winter months. The pregnancy of a deer mouse  lasts from 22.4 to 25.5 days. Deer mice may have litters containing from one to eleven young with typical litters containing from 4-6 babies. In captivity, deer mice can live as long as eight years, but in the wild, life expectancy usually less than a year.

Behavior & Personality

Deer mice spend most of their time on the ground. Their activity centers around nesting and stockpiling their food.

Season and Times Most Active

Going with the trend of the majority of the pests in the Las Vegas and Clark County area, deer mice are known to invade your safe space at home or work year-round but less active during the winter months. Come the winter months, 10+ mice may congregate together to conserve heat. During this time they may also enter a state known as torpor, which helps reduce body temperature and conserve their energy. Deer mice are also nocturnal, making them out to be more active throughout the night.

Preferred Habitat and Diet

Deer mice prefer arid desert biomes, but species of them can be found across the globe in semi arid, tropical, dry forests and scrub except for Southeastern United States and some coastal areas of Mexico. Deer mice commonly eat insects, seeds, fruit, flowers, nuts, and other plant products.

Risk Factors

Although deer mice may appear harmless, they are known to carry dangerous diseases that can be spread through mouse parasites or contaminated food. Hantavirus is a pulmonary syndrome that is passed through deer mice droppings.
