Mice (Mus Musculus)

rat

Size

This little rodent can be up to 5 cm in length (excluding the tail).

Colour

The house mouse can be brown or grey.

Description

It has a tail longer than its body and head, around 10 cm. It has a great reproductive capacity throughout the year and can have around 5-15 litters a year with 4 to 8 babies per litter.

Diet

Its diet is based mainly on plants, but can sometimes feed on meat or cheese.

Habitat

House mice are very shy animals which make them nocturnal species; they are also excellent climbers and love to live in groups. They are characterized by their ability to adapt to the most difficult environments and their close cohabitation of humans hence the term “domestic;” all these features make this species one of the most widespread mammals on earth.

Consequences / Dangers

This mouse can seem harmless because of its small size, but do not be deceived!

Mouse urine can cause allergies in children and they can contaminate food and living areas with their droppings.

In addition they may carry ticks and fleas, which in turn can transmit diseases.

Prevention

But don’t worry, there are habits to adopt, measures to be taken, and treatments to follow to solve a rat invasion problem.

Prevention is better than a cure! So consult an extermination specialist by checking out our prevention guide below.
