Can mice climb walls?

Answer

According to the University of Nebraska's Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources, mice are able to climb rough walls. These include wood, brick, concrete and weathered sheet metal surfaces. Mice also climb wires, ropes, cables, vines, shrubs and trees.

Mice have many other skills that help them survive but are problematic to humans trying to control rodent infestation. Mice easily fit into and crawl through small pipes. Their strong jaws and teeth allow them to gnaw a wide range of materials, such as wood, rubber, vinyl, plastic and concrete block. They are capable of living and reproducing when temperatures drop as low as 24 degrees Fahrenheit as long as they have warm nests and food supplies.
