Where do they live?

Deer mice prefer to nest outdoors in things like fence posts, tree hollows, log piles, abandoned bird and squirrel nests, beneath decks, outbuildings or barns. When cooler weather arises they can be found indoors in basements, attics, storage boxes, furniture, wall voids, sill plates and structural corners and any tight spaces.
