        Habits

        The deer mouse feeds at dusk and dawn, preferring insects, seeds, nuts, berries and small fruits.

        Habitat

        Deer mice often nest in sheltered outdoor areas such as old fence posts, hollow tree logs or piles of debris. During the winter months, deer mice may invade homes, garages, sheds or rarely used vehicles to seek shelter. Inside, attics and basements make the ideal deer mouse habitat. The deer mouse also?builds its nest?in storage boxes, stuffed furniture, drawers and wall voids.
