The house mouse is a prolific breeder, they reach sexual maturity within 35 days. Pregnancy lasts an average of 19 days. There are about 8 litters a year with an average of 6 young per litter. A mouse requires about 3gm of food per day and 1.5ml of water although this can be extracted from the food they eat.
For both mice and rats we use a powerful bait containing chemicals which once ingested, will kill within minutes. Bait is laid in child-proof bait boxes, although we do recommend children and pets be kept away from the bait. We also find the point of entry into your property and seal it up with strong materials to prevent the rodents returning.
They carry disease, the worst being Salmonella, via their droppings which number on average is 50 per day. Over a 6-month period a pair of mice will eat about 1.8kg of food, produce 18,000 droppings, and 355ml of urine.
They eat many kinds of food but prefer seeds, they will always try new foods. Nesting materials include paper products, cotton, packing materials, wall/attic insulation fabrics etc.
THE HUMANE SOLUTION
For additional charge we will capture the rodents alive in a cage and then let them free into rural areas.
