Deer mice are abundant, often among the most abundant mice of certain areas. Densities can reach 11 mice per acre. Many factors including availablity of food, water, and nest sites are thought to affect how many deer mice can live in an area. However, only the availability of food has been studied in enough detail to show it has an effect on population density.
