Mice

Despite their tiny bodies, mice eat between 15 and 20 times a day.

A house mouse produces between 40 and 100 droppings per day.

Mice typically enter our homes between October and February, looking for food, water and shelter from the cold.

While these rodents may look cute, mice spread more germs than most people realise.

Mice can actually carry as many as 200 human pathogens! If you spot a mouse in the house, it is safe to assume there are more or there will be soon. Female mice can give birth when they are two months old and are able to have babies 6 to 10 times per year.

Problems Caused by Mice

They spread diseases through their urine that can transmit to humans (Weil’s disease, Salmonella, Listeria, Toxoplasma Gondii and Hantavirus.)

They can cause structural damage by gnawing through cables pipes and even gas mains.

They can ruin a the reputation of businesses, especially in the food/catering industry.

Through the Prevention of Damage by Pests Act 1949, property owners have a legal obligation to keep their premises rodent-free.

Treatment of Mice
