    Do beach mice infest properties and do they need special treatment?

      Beach mice are not known to infest properties but beach mice are protected depending on the species. If you do have a mice issue, I would suggest calling a pest control company that deals with small mammals. They have trained professionals that can identify and follow proper procedures depending on the species.
