Mice, like rats, are a hazard to health. They are responsible for the spread of disease.

Mice are voracious feeders, often nibbling on several different food sources at a time. They eat food which may be intended for human consumption and contaminate much more (which must then be disposed of) with their urine, droppings and fur whilst they feed. Mice droppings can easily be identified as small black rice like pellets and a single mouse can leave up to 50 droppings in a 24 hour period. In addition to this contamination, mice transmit several diseases and are great contributors to fatal cases of food poisoning. Mice will also cause structural damage to property by gnawing through woodwork, electrical wires, pipes and household items .

The life expectancy of mice is around one year during which time the female may breed up to six times, The average size of litter is six.

Mice prefer to build their nests in concealed positions that are close to a source of food, they are agile climbers, enabling them to gain access to higher levels of a building, through very small spaces.
