The elusive mouse

I say elusive because a combination of its small size and exclusively nocturnal habits mean you will rarely see one; if they are seen in the daytime, that means that they are particularly desperate in their search for food.

Of the species found in the UK, the house mouse is more likely to nest in your home, especially if you live in urban areas. That said, all species will resort to searching households for food because they like to feed on scraps left by humans such as cheese, crumbs and cereal.

• Diseases: mice are carriers of a range of pathogens and bacteria that can cause serious harm to humans. When a mouse moves around, it will leave behind urine and faeces that contain bacteria that can cause Hantavirus and Lyme disease.
