The History of Mice

Mice are thought to have originated in Central Asia and have been reportedly found in this country as early as the 9th Century. As agricultural practices improved man’s harvests, the need for greater storage facilities were created thus providing more food and nesting sites for mice and rats.

House mice will drink water if available but can survive on food with a moisture content of 15%. Mice will eat almost anything they find in a house.

Problems Caused by Mice

The most common problems come from the common House Mouse. As well as spreading disease, contaminating food and water, mice are also destructive to property and will chew on almost anything.

Identifying Signs of a Mouse problem

In the home you will usually find mice in the kitchen, under cupboards, behind fridges and appliances, behind bath panels, under stairs and behind boilers or inside airing cupboards, although they can get into most places within the home.

Most commonly you will either hear them scratching or spot signs of mouse droppings first, which look like tiny brown pellets. You will often see signs of the damage they leave behind where they have chewed through things, often food containers.

Mouse tend to be more active after dark, so you may spot them scurrying between hiding places.

How Mice Get Into Your Home

Although they look big, mice are capable of squeezing through very small holes or cracks within walls or between window frames. It is said that a mouse can squeeze its body through a hole as small as 1cm.

Mice can also climb very well so may enter through gaps in facias, although most common points of entry are low down around shin height.

Treatment of a Mice Infestation

There are a few different methods for getting rid of mice. The method used will depend on the severity and location of the infestation. Your pest controller will be able to offer the best advice once an assessment has been carried out.

If you have any questions or are worried you may have a mouse infestation please contact us for advice or to arrange a visit.
