About Mice

A mouse is a small rodent characteristically having a pointed snout, small rounded ears, a body-length scaly tail and a high breeding rate. The best known mouse species is the common house mouse. Mice can at times be vermin, damaging and eating crops, causing structural damage and spreading diseases through their parasites and feces. Primarily nocturnal animals, mice compensate for their poor eyesight with a keen sense of hearing, and rely especially on their sense of smell to locate food and avoid predators.

Appearance

  • Size: adult head and body 80 – 100mm in length; Tail 70 – 90mm.
  • Weight: Male can weigh 25g, and the female 20g.
  • Sandy / orange brown fur on the head and back.
  • Yellowish fur on the flanks and white on the belly.
  • There is usually a small streak of yellow on the chest.

Mice Life Cycle

Their lifespan averages two to three months, but they can survive as much as 20 months in the wild, or two or more years in captivity. Breeding seasons are March/April to October/November and gestation lasts approximately 25 days. They grow their first fur after six days; their eyes open after 16; and they are weaned at around 18 days old. Survival of the young and adults is poor during the first half of the breeding season as adult males can be aggressive towards one another and to the young, who are then driven from the nest.

Mice Treatment

Mice are known for feeding often in small quantities at a time, for this reason it recommended to put down plenty of anticoagulant food baits located inside bait stations which should ensure your mouse problem is solved quickly and efficiently in around 2-3 visits. We can even proof weak spots in or around your property which is recommended to prevent future infestations.
