There is no cuter pest than a mouse. Unfortunately its cuteness is outweighed by how problematic they can be. Mice can eat through wires, wood and cardboard, they leave feces that can produce diseases, they reproduce quickly, they are smarter than your average pest and they are highly adaptable to their surroundings. This makes for a very frustrating extermination process. One of the most successful ways to get rid of mice is by using mouse bait.
