Mice

MouseMice (House Mouse) - (Mus Domesticus)

The two most common rodent public health pests in Britain are the common Rat (Rattus Novergicus) and the house mouse (Mus Domesticus). These species have become so well adapted to living in close association with man that they have acquired a world wide distribution. The movements of rodents are mainly nocturnal and normal activity is at a minimum during daylight hours.

Life Style

The life cycle of rats and mice is similar. They are capable of reproducing at the age of about 3 months. After mating and conception there is a relatively short period of pregnancy (gestation). Birth is followed by similar time period, after which the litter is weaned. These rodents can birth every 24 to 28 days, and this can give rise to very rapidly increasing populations. One pair rats/mice can produce up to 60 offspring in their lifetime.

Structural Damage

Rodent's incisor teeth grow up to 5" per year and their constant need to gnaw can create significant problems when they enter a building. A large proportion of house fires have been traced to rodents gnawing electrical wires etc...

Contamination

Costs for a comprehensive pest control system work out far less than the contaminated/damaged products that they destroy each year.
