House Mouse Infestation (Mus musculus)
Breeding and Lifecycle:
- These mice produce 4-15 in every litter and have 6-9 litters per year.
- Mice can breed after 7-11 weeks of being born.
- A usual pregnancy period of three weeks before inception.
Where Mice Live and What They Like to Consume:
- Mice are extremely efficient climbers and can be found in high crevices.
- Their preferred food source is cereals.
- They will consume 2-3g over a 24 hour period but are content enough to survive without water. Nevertheless, if their food source is particularly dry, they will drink up to 4ml a day.
Field Mouse or Wood-Mouse Infestation (Apodemus sylvaticus)
Lifecycle and Breeding:
- A field mouse has an average lifespan of around 2-3 months but has been known to survive as long as 21 months in the wild.
- They have a breeding season that commences in March/April and terminates around October/November. The pregnancy period of the average Field Mouse is around 24 days.
- Field mice are predisposed to feed on the seed crop of certain trees such as beech, oak, sycamore and hawthorn.
- They will feed on small insects if other food sources are not readily available.
- They are known to protect their food for a certain time period before finally consuming it.
Before we undertake infestation jobs, we carry out a full survey on the property to establish the full extent of the problem. In essence, this will help us choose what treatment will be the most effective and give us the chance to discuss it with the customer. We also look for external entry points and reasons for the initial onset of the infestation.
Our team offers professional advice on Malpas mice control and mouse removal to avoid further infestations in the future. We centre our advice on sensible and proactive housekeeping throughout properties to ensure the prevention of further infestations. Furthermore, we provide equipment as part of future mice control/mouse control and talk through how to use them properly.
