House Mice House mice
Habitat is usually indoors, found under floorboards, cavity walls and lofts. Their main diet is cereals, pulses and fruit but will scavenge for any available food source as they are omnivorous. House mice can have 7-8 litters/year which can contain between 4-16 young. Mice activity is very easy to spot due to a wide dispersal of droppings and gnawing damage.
Control of infestations is achieved through baiting, trapping and good housekeeping (cleaning food spillages daily) and sealing food packets in containers.
