Mice mature when they are between 8 and 10 weeks old and can produce 16 young per litter. Mice can produce up to 8 litters per pair per year, that’s a lot of mice for you to deal with!
Mice can climb very well and squeeze through almost any small gap, their presence is usually noticed by dark coloured droppings or when there is damage to stored foods in a household.
These nuisances have a compulsive need to gnaw away at stuff to keep their ever growing teeth from getting too long. This means that they often chew through wires in houses and can cause problems with water and gas pipes too!
Because of their sporadic habits, traditional baiting techniques often don’t work.
Rodenticides like Warfarin are often used in combination with rodent proofing as much as possible to eradicate these pests.
Blocking all means of entry for mice is a great way of keeping them out and away from your home. Blocking holes with wire wool and concrete or fitting metal strips to damaged wooden doors all help with keeping mice out.
