Mice

Scientific Name: Mus musculus

A mouse is a small mammal with short fur, a pointed face, small rounded ears, and a long tail. The best known mouse species is the common house mouse. It is also a popular pet. In some places, certain kinds of field mice are locally common. They are known to invade homes for food and shelter. Mice are typically distinguished from rats by their size. Mice are nocturnal, meaning they like to sleep during the day.

  • Damage materials such as food containers, wood, cloths, particle board, insulation and wiring through gnawing.

When homes are infested with mice, humans will often find chewed up wires, books, papers and insulation around their home. Mice aren’t eating these items, they are chewing them into pieces that they can use to make their nests. This is because mice nests are made from whatever the female mouse can find.

Mice are omnivorous (they eat both plants, fruits, seeds, grains and meat) and the common house mice will eat just about anything it can find. In fact, if food is scarce, mice will even eat each other. Mice have voracious appetites. They eat around 15 to 20 times per day, so they build their homes nearby places that have readily accessible food sources.

A female mouse give birth in about 19–21 days, and they give birth to a litter of 3–14 young (average six to eight). One female can have 5 to 10 litters per year, so the mouse population can increase very quickly. Breeding occurs throughout the year.

The pups are born blind and without fur or ears. The ears are fully developed by the fourth day, fur begins to appear at about six days and the eyes open around 13 days after birth; the pups are weaned at around 21 days. Females reach sexual maturity at about six weeks of age and males at about eight weeks, but both can copulate as early as five weeks. If the infants live in high temperature area from birth, they will be less-haired.

The lifespan of a mice can vary depending on the species. A house mouse may live 9 to 12 months where as a deer mouse may live 2 – 15 Months. The main cause of death is cancer and the kidney failure.
