In the wild, house mice eat many kinds of plant matter, including seeds, roots, leaves, and stems. They will also eat insects (Coleoptera, Lepidoptera, and Blattaria) and meat if it is available. If house mice live near humans, they will eat any human food that is available as well as glue, soap, and other household materials. Many mice will gather and then store their food for later use.
