Do Mice Really Like Cheese?

It is the classic cartoon setup—a mousetrap with a piece of yellow cheese, ready to tempt and trap a mouse in the house. But do mice really like cheese? If you are concerned about mice prevention, contact a mice exterminator and schedule mouse-proofing in Chicago, and then watch this video clip to learn if cheese really has the power to lure mice in.

If a mouse is hungry enough, it’ll eat nearly anything, including cheese. However, if other food is available, many types of mice will actively avoid eating cheese, especially types of cheese with strong odors. Mice prefer to eat grains, vegetables, and sweet foods over cheese and other dairy products. The misconception that mice like cheese may have arisen because centuries ago, many types of cheese were stored in the open in cellars, making the cheese more accessible to mice than other types of stored food.
