Also known as the house mouse, or the long tailed field mouse, a mouse/mice infestation in your home or work can be both dangerous and frustrating and the best way to get rid of mice is to employ the services of a professional mice control company, such as The Rat Catchers.
The Dangers of a Mice Infestation
Like rats, mice need to gnaw in order to wear down their constantly growing incisor teeth, and as a result, cause extensive damage to electrical cables, water and gas pipes, woodwork and packaging. This damage is a major cause of flooding and fires in the UK each year and can put businesses, homes and families in severe danger.
Diseases and the Eating Habits of Mice
Mice are sporadic feeders, often nibbling on several different food sources at one time, but they contaminate far more food than they actually consume, as they defecate and urinate incontinently whilst they feed. Mice droppings can easily be identified as small black rice like pellets and a single mouse can leave up to 50 droppings in a 24 hour period. In addition to this contamination, mice transmit several diseases and are great contributors to fatal cases of food poisoning. Mice found in food related businesses, will cause health and safely officials to close premises and prosecute owners and so mice infestation can also present major financial loss.
Again like rats, mice are avid breeders and become sexually mature at just eight to ten weeks of age. A female mouse may produce up to eight litters a year, each containing up to sixteen young. This means that the rate of infestation can grow rapidly and in one year, one pair of mice may be responsible for an infestation in excess of 16,000 mice.
Mice seek the warmth and shelter of buildings, especially in the winter when more people become aware of their mouse infestation problem. They prefer to build their nests in concealed positions that are close to a source of food, and they are agile climbers, enabling them to gain access to higher levels of a building, through very small spaces.
