The numbers of both mice and rats have remained consistently high in Manchester for some years. A combination of plentiful food supplies mild winters and mild winters have allowed populations to boom.
Mice are alot smaller than rats. A mouse is normaly about 9cm long,and a tail that is longer then its head and body. Manchester mice can vary from grey to dark brown. Mouse droppings are around 4mm long and are black or a dark brown. Mice can produce upto 70 droppings a day.

How to keep rats and mice AWAY
The following points may help to prevent an infestation:
- if you feed birds, use a bird table or a hanging net, and ensure any food that falls to the ground is cleared away;
- don’t leave food for other wildlife on the ground and clean up after rabbits, guinea pigs and other pets,making sure their cages are raised off the ground;
- make sure drainpipes are not broken,and drain inspection covers are in good condition;
- make sure gardens don’t become overgrown, and dont let rubbish build up outside(such as old mattresses and furniture) as this will provide protection for rats
- secure outbuildings and sheds so that rats and mice cannot get inside;
- don’t put meat or other non-fruit or vegetable waste onto open compost heaps, use a properly designed compost unit;
- when building a compost heap,use strong wire mesh on the base to stop rats digging underneath;
