The house mouse is an inquisitive, sneaky, and very unwelcome presence in almost any home.

Homeowners are often the first line of defense when it comes to ensuring mice and other rodents can't gain access to living spaces.

Here are a few things you should know about a pest that, annually, invades an estimated 21 million homes in the United States:

Despite their tiny bodies (and even tinier stomachs), mice consume between 15 and 20 times per day. Because of their frequent eating habits, they prefer to construct their nests near food sources.

Mice are good jumpers, climbers, and swimmers. Mice can jump a foot into the air, letting them easily climb onto kitchen counters or to pantries to get food.

They are a germy bunch

You understand that mice can spread diseases like hantavirus and Salmonella, but that's just the start.

1 mouse can turn into many quickly

A female house mouse can create as many as 150 offspring in a single year. If you spot a mouse in your house, it is safe to assume there are more -- or there'll be soon.

How can you prevent your home from falling victim to an unwanted rodent infestation? The two most important steps are sanitation and exclusion.

If good sanitation practices aren't followed, the benefits of any rodent-control measures will be lost, and the rodents will quickly return.

Keep firewood, boxes, and other household products off the floor to reduce the suitability of the area for mice to hide.

Collect garbage, trash, and garden debris frequently, and make sure that all garbage receptacles have tight-fitting covers.

Store all pantry items in hard plastic containers with a tightly sealed lid.

The most effective form of rodent control in a residence is exclusion. Physically sealing off your house to deny rodents access is the best way to go.

Seal openings on the exterior with a silicone caulk, and fill gaps and holes inside your house with steel wool, wire screening, or lightweight sheet metal.

Because rodents are excellent climbers, openings above ground level (e.g., along the roof line and gutters) must also be plugged
