The house mouse is the most common mouse found infesting domestic properties in the UK. The house mouse (Mus domesticus) is brownish-grey with a thin tail that is longer than the head and body. Adults may weigh up to 25g. The house mouse has good climbing skills and may gain access to premises by a number of means. It can be found both indoors and outdoors and, once colonised indoors, will even use cavity walls to move around the premises and to create an undisturbed breeding environment.
Mice can breed very quickly and require a very small amount of food and water to survive (as little as one pea will supply the mouse with enough food and water for one day). Mice, similar to rats, may carry diseases such as leptospirosis, salmonella and campylobacter and cause structural damage to buildings by gnawing and burrowing. When mice infest food they may contaminate the food and make it dangerous to eat.
TREATMENT & CONTROL
Prior to carrying out treatment against mice, a thorough inspection or survey of the property, site or area should take place to decide on the extent and size of the infestation.
Adjoining areas should also be included in this survey (as rodents may travel from other areas to feed or drink then return to a harbourage).
Birmingham Pest Service will treat the mouse infestation using bait stations in safe locations. Mice are neophobic and may be reluctant to approach DIY bait stations. Our pest control operatives are experienced in identifying and locating runs and places of harbourage, and the placement and use of bait to overcome bait shyness. We also provide tamper-resistant stations, having regard to all the circumstances of the infestation, the premises, the people involved and with minimal disruption to business, where appropriate.
Birmingham Pest Control Service covers Birmingham, West Midlands and Sutton Coldfield. Contact us for more info.
