This time of year, when the nights start getting down right nippy, mice will be triggered to start seeking warmer shelter. If you could see an infra-red image of your home at night, it might look like a sun. Mice pick up on this easily, and start exploring, and looking for a way in.
Mice are only limited by the size of their skulls when they are trying to get into something. As long as their skulls can get through an opening, they can squeeze the rest of their bodies through. A general rule of thumb is this. If you can get a pencil through, then a mouse can get through. This presents a great challenge as many buildings by design have opportunities built into them for mice to access. And to boot, mice can chew their way in. https://www.pestworld.org/news-hub/pest-articles/fascinating-facts-you-never-knew-about-mice/
