Fascinating Facts

The adult mouse, including the tail, is around 150mm long and they are omnivores; they eat anything! Mice are only pregnant for three weeks and the young are hairless and feed off the mother's milk for three weeks. The house mouse can have 5 - 14 baby mice in a litter and may have 8-10 litters a year. This means that a house mouse infestation can build up very quickly.

Mice urinate and defecate constantly, contaminating work surfaces or even food left out in the kitchen. An infestation of mice is quite easy to see because a house mouse typically does 80 droppings a day. Diseases associated with mice include Murine Typhus, Trichinosis and Salmonellosis (Food poisoning) and therefore pest control for mice is very important.

Good hygiene and proofing should be part of an integrated pest control management program. House mice in urban areas can be difficult to control as they may choose to avoid the bait, either mentally or physiologically, so different techniques for mouse treatments may be needed. Skill, knowledge, thorough training and the safe use of pesticides are essential for the successful control of mice.

House mice walk, run and stand on all fours. They can stand on the hind legs, as well, and are supported by the tail, which also provides balance while in motion. The house mouse has a sharp sense of hearing and communicates with other house mice through squeaks. Some of these squeaks are audible to humans, while others extend into the ultrasonic range. The common house mouse weighs between 12 to 22 grams and may grow up 20 cm in length. They are black to light brown or gray in color, with short hair and lighter bellies.
