Mice, Common Name House Mouse, Scientific Name Mus domesticus-House Mouse
The House Mouse is one of the most common pests we encounter in our homes. Field Mice- Apodomus sylvaticus seldom come indoors in urban areas.
Accessing from area to area through the tiniest of gaps, it can be extremely frustrating to get on top of an infestation of mice. Mice are primarily nocturnal, they feed on a variety of matter but will often consume food intended for human use such as biscuits and cereals. Due to difficulty accessing their nests, it can be very difficult to ensure that a mouse infestation has been removed. Meaning many DIY attempts at control fail to completely remove the problem.
A mouse infestation can get out of control quickly. Often you can have mice in attic space, mice in walls, mice under floorboards, mice in kitchens under presses and other hard to reach areas. Placing mice traps in the right locations is key to control of the mice infestation.
Furthermore, mice can pose a risk to human health as they can carry many foodborne pathogens, and Leptospirosis (Weils disease). Mice can cause damage to wiring and destroy and contaminate stocks of food.
