Mouse Profile


Description:

Although very small, the mouse is a widely feared pest, probably due to its unpredictable and quick movements. If you have a mouse in your house, you may hear scampering feet above your ceiling or inside your cavity walls at night. Or you may discover mouse droppings or gnawed cereal boxes in the kitchen. Another tell-tale sign is the distinctive odour that mice emit.

When it comes to solving a mouse problem, it does not really matter what type of mouse infestation you have. All the different types of mice have the potential to bring infection and destruction into your home.

 

Distribution:

House mice primarily feed on plants, but they will also eat meat and dairy products. They will drink water but require very little of it. They will eat their own droppings to acquire nutrients produced by bacteria in their guts!

Just like rats, mice carry disease and can contaminate foodstuffs with their fur, eating and urine, which can cause salmonella poisoning and gastroenteritis. In addition, they can damage your property by gnawing through wood, cables and into containers to get at food.

Life Cycle:

The house mouse is the most common rodent pest in most parts of the world. A female house mouse can give birth to up to a dozen babies every three weeks. That’s 150 babies a year! House mice are very common in Manchester.

House mice live in structures, but they can live outdoors. They breed throughout the year and often share nests with their "relatives". The House Mouse can quite easily inhabit your home or property, therefore the house mouse is a marjor problem in Manchester.

About Mouse Control


Mouse Control Methods

Even the smallest amount of mouse urine can trigger allergies, particularly in children because their immune systems are still developing. Mice spread disease through bite wounds and by contaminating food and water with their waste products. Mice can also spread disease thanks to parasites, such as ticks, fleas and mites. These parasites bite the infected mouse and then spread the disease by biting humans.

  • Mice eat 15-20 times a day, so keep your homes clean and do not leave food out.

  • Be sure to empty kitchen and household garbage cans frequently.

  • Make sure that your home and storage areas are clean and dry.
