Number 1 Pest Control
The house mouse (mus domesticus) is the most common species found in London. Sometimes field mice also enter houses in the late autumn when conditions get colder. The adult mouse weighs less than 25 grams and has brown to grey fur on its back and grey to white underneath; it has large ears in relation to its body and small feet. Its tail is thin and the same length as its body.
Where and how do mice live?
Although mainly mice are house visitors, nesting under floors, and within wall cavities, mice may live outdoors for all or part of the year. Mice are more active at night. mice are good climbers and can squeeze through gaps as small as 6mm. This means mice can quite easily enter our homes. mice need less water than rats, mice can usually find enough moisture from their food.
Why are mice a problem?
Mice are a health hazard. mice are responsible for spreading diseases, eat food intended for humans, and ruin it with their urine, droppings and fur. Mice can also cause damage to buildings by gnawing through woodwork, wires, pipes and household items.
How do mice breed?
A mouse can live about nine months to a year, during which time a female mouse may breed up to ten times. The average size of a mouse litter is six. Breeding occurs throughout the year but especially in the spring and autumn.
How can I get rid of mice?
number 1 pest control can use traps and poisons to get rid of the mice.
If you have problems treating mice, we will visit and carry out a survey to advise on the best control measures. This could mean that we have to visit and treat a number of nearby homes at the same time, (block treatment). If poison baits are used, they should be left undisturbed. We will return to check these, and refill them if necessary. number 1 pest control will remove when the traps and bait when you no longer have a problem.
