Mice are tough creatures, can endure much of the harsh living conditions and have some surprising athletic abilities.
Mice are one of the world’s most common pests as scientists have revealed that Mus musculus domesticus first approached humans some 15,000 years ago. Today they are found virtually everywhere. They are rodents and can be very destructive when they infest your property. Prodigious breeders, a couple of mice can quickly turn into dozens. It won’t take them long to scurry behind the refrigerator, the walls, around baseboards and into furniture. Mice can chew through fabric and crawl into cabinets and drawers to find food. In short, they are a nuisance.
Mice damage property, leave a mess wherever they decide to nest, and are even known to spread diseases such as the hantavirus and salmonella (food poisoning). They also carry fleas and ticks that can spread diseases like Lyme Disease, Colorado Tick Fever and more. Not to mention the droppings they leave behind, a disgusting common sign of a mouse infestation.
The typical mouse habitat remains a mystery for many homeowners because mice are so elusive. If you’re lucky – or unlucky, as it were – you might catch a glimpse of a mouse scurrying across the kitchen floor when you turn on the lights. But in many cases, it’s only the damage that mice cause that remains in plain sight. So, where do mice
These small rodents are sexually mature at six to seven weeks of age. After becoming pregnant, the female mouse will endure only 19 to 21 days of gestation, although it may last 28 days if the female is mated in the first heat following parturition. Each litter usually consists of 8 to 12 pups, with an average of 7, but they can reach up to 20 pups. A curious fact: the largest litter of a mammal in the wild was that of a female mouse in 1961: 32 offspring!
The number of litters per year varies between four and eight.
Mice construct their nests by harvesting materials that are plentiful and readily available. Mice are shy creatures, and they tend to confine their activities to a small radius. In fact, mice are rarely spotted more than 25 feet away from their nests. Paper, fabric, string, fiberglass insulation, mattress and pillow batting and plant material (e.g., straw) can all be easily shredded and transported by mice for the purpose of nest-building. House mice prefer to form their nests into rough, ball-like structures, about four to six inches in diameter. A mouse nest may also look like loose piles of those same materials or like collections of wood chips, pellets and “fill” found in hamster cages and guinea pig enclosures. Mice are not clean animals, and they often leave droppings and scatter bits and pieces of scavenged food around their nests.
Eliminating mice from a property can be very difficult because mice are nocturnal, shy, and elusive creatures. Completely eliminating mice from your property requires the knowledge and experience of a trained professional. The highly trained exterminators at Pespro understand the habits and habitats of mice, and after a thorough inspection, we will provide a tailored rodent control solution that will meet the needs of your specific property.
