During the cool winters in Fort Wayne, IN, mice are serious pests as the harsh weather and scarcity of food drive them inside local homes. Since the pests are tiny, they can force their way inside via holes around outdoor piping, vents, and damaged window and doorframes. The most common species in the Fort Wayne area are white footed mice and house mice. Infestations of mice cause structural damage thanks to their gnawing, the spread of diseases, and unpleasant odors due to the accumulation of urine and droppings.
