The best known and biggest rodent problem affecting homes and businesses today is the Common House Mouse (Mus domesticus), which is usually 2-4 inches long and light brown to black in colour, mice will eat virtually anything. They contaminate far more food than they consume and spread many diseases, particularly food poisoning.
As well as being a significant source of infection, they can also cause a large amount of damage to property. They will chew anything, from furniture to structural woodwork and plasterboard. They will also chew through cables causing a potential fire risk.
The life cycle of mice
The House Mouse is a prolific breeder. They have a gestation period of just three weeks, with litters of up to 16. Newborn mice are blind and furless but 3 days after birth, hairs will start to grow and at about one and a half weeks their eyes will open.These young will reach sexual maturity in around 8 weeks and be able to have litters of their own.
The treatment of mice
Mice feed little and often, sometimes even up to 25 times a day. For this reason it pays to put down plenty of anticoagulant baits located in tamper-proof bait stations, which should ensure that your mouse problems are solved in around 3 visits. Proofing of potential entry points is always recommended to prevent infestation returning.
When treating mice infestations, we endeavour to use the most environmentally friendly products.
