What are the tell-tale signs of a mouse problem in my home or business?

Signs of mouse infestation include droppings, fresh gnawing or furniture, tracks and rodent sightings. House mice have a characteristic damp, musky odour. Mouse nests, made from fine shredded fibres such as paper, are often found in sheltered locations. Mice are occasionally seen during daylight hours, however, they will be active during night hours, especially in undisturbed areas.

Although there are over six varieties of Mouse living in the UK, the most serious damage by far is caused by the most common of these rodents – the ‘house mouse’ (Mus musculus). Small in size: with a total body length of between 3 and 10cm, the house mouse is a rodent pest that has been known to cause domestic and commercial damages by chewing through electrical cables, food stuffs, packaging, raw materials and boxed goods, and contaminate food or food preparation surfaces spreading disease, and actually breeding wherever they populate.

Mice have a very short gestation period: around three weeks, with litters reaching 16, the young in turn reach sexual maturity in as little as six weeks. This has earned the house mouse the title of the world’s most economic and industrial pest. It doesn’t take a mathematician to calculate that one pair of mice can result in 2,000 offspring in a single year.

  • Mice can fit through many tiny gaps

  • They don’t like the cold (well who doesn’t?!)

  • They have a very poor eyesight

  • Mice have excellent hearing

  • They love to gnaw and chew on absolutely anything

What can you do? Follow these simple tips to help prevent a Mouse problem before it happens. Or, for more information, read about signs of mice in your home or business.

Helpful Tips

Measures you can take to prevent a mouse problem in your home or business focus on steps to prevent entry. Mice are great climbers and can find a way into buildings through small gaps in walls and roofing. Follow these steps to protect your home:

  • Fitting bristle (or brush) to the bottom of doors will prevent entry
  • Seal holes around pipework to prevent access to wall cavities
  • Cover vents and exterior holes with wire mesh
  • Trim tree branches and avoid growing plants on the side of the property – mice use these to get onto roofing and enter the home
  • Mowing lawns helps to reduce shelter and food sources
