Control

  • mice are inquisitive and easy to catch with mousetraps. Bait with chocolate and peanut butter
  • combine traps with a number of mouse bait boxes. Mice eat little  and often, so multiple bait points each with very little poison bait is best. Move the bait points regularly to keep the mice interested. Use bait boxes.
  • remove any food sources that the mice may be eating alongside the poison, to make it take better effect
  • when the mice have gone, proof the area, blocking any holes with wire wool embedded in filler or with a product such as MouseStop
  • remember mice only need a tiny hole to gain access, 5mm is big enough
  • keep the outside of your property clean and tidy, removing potential harbourage
  • mice are very adaptable, breed rapidly and spread disease so deal with quickly

    Lifecycle

  •  in the wild, mice breed in spring, summer and autumn but inside they will breed all year round
  • breeding is prolific. Females are sexually mature at 6 weeks and breed straight away
  • the gestation period is about 21 days and litters are large
  • each female mouse is capable of producing 5-10 litters in a year
  • in the wild, a mouse would be expected to live about a year, but more like 2-3 years in the relative safety of a human dwelling
    • Habitat

    • all mice are happy living outside in the fields and hedgerows
    • house mice have developed a strong relationship with humans and they are more than happy to live alongside us in our cavity walls, lofts, basements and warehouses as the weather turns cold
    • field mice are more likely to find shelter in outbuildings, barns and sheds.
    • mice eat ANYTHING, but are particularly attracted to chocolate, peanut butter, cereals, birdseed and pet food. They nibble everything without consuming it so can quickly contaminate a lot of foodstuffs.
    • water is not a necessity as they obtain moisture from what they eat
