House Mouse, (Mus domesticus)



House mice will drink water if available but can survive on food with a moisture content of 15%. It is omnivorous, feeding from a number of different points.Whole wheat, which has been partly eaten by mice, has a kibbled appearance whilst whole grain, partly eaten by rats, has a cut or chopped appearance. However mice will eat almost anything they find in a house.

Where will you find them?

In a house you will find them in the kitchen, under units, behind fridges, behind bath panels, under stair cupboards and boiler and airing cupboards to name just a few places. In the past we have had to deal with a mouse chewing on a baby’s dummy in a crib although this is very rare.

How do we control mice?

We offer a free of charge survey that is carried out by our trained surveyors. They will offer our proposal and advice as to how to treat and how you can try to reduce the risk of reinfestation in the future.Our technician will initially talk through the problems you are experiencing and explain what our treatment entails. He will then carry out a thorough inspection of your premises prior to any treatment and assess the level and extent of the infestation. Once this has been established, he will carry out treatment to the appropriate areas. Once our treatment is complete we will detail our work in an inspection report and leave this with you, our technician will then arrange a convenient time to carry out a follow up visit.
