Mice

The mouse found commonly in buildings is the house mouse. The fur colour varies between light brown and grey. Body length varies between 60-90mm and the tail can add an additional 100mm. The most common first signs of a mice infestation are the small black droppings about 5mm-8mm in length – similar in size and shape to a grain of rice. Other signs include chewed holes in woodwork, plastic ducting and other building materials. At night time in particular, the scratching and scuttling noises of mice can be heard when the rest of the building is relatively quiet. Mice breed all year round and the female will have 5-10 litters every year. It is easy, therefore, to see why mice can become a major problem if undetected in commercial buildings. Their favourite foods are cereal products, although they will eat almost anything. They also foul food with urine and droppings. Mice will gnaw their way through wood to get to sources of food.
