Professional Neston Mice Control
Mice are one of the most common pests found in households, with the house mouse (Mus domesticus) being the single most common species encountered in UK properties. Mice generally gain access through holes or cracks they find in the walls, foundations or floors of a building and bring with them a number of different issues.
Due to the fact that they can breed quickly and survive on relatively little food or water, Neston mice control can be difficult. Mice can spread a number of diseases, including Hantavirus, Lyme Disease, and Leptospirosis and have a tendency to gnaw and chew on things, leading to structural damage and even electrical fires.
As a result, if you encounter mice in your home, business or other property, it is important that you take swift Neston mice control action. Young’s Pest Control provides this professional mice infestation control service, which will eliminate infestations and limit the damage they are able to cause.
Although other species can infest UK households, the most common species causing mice infestation in the country is the Mus domesticus. These creatures are typically a brownish-grey colour and have long tails, with only a thin covering of hair, meaning the tail can appear bald.
The house mouse is able to breed extremely quickly, producing litters of up to 15 mice a time, with gestation lasting just three weeks. As a result of this short gestation period, the Mus domesticus is able to produce between 6 and 9 litters of young per year and each offspring is able to start reproducing from the age of around 7 weeks old.
Usually, mice will eat around 2 or 3g worth of food per day. Yet, mice are able to function on extremely small quantities of food and water. In fact, one pea will supply enough food and water to allow a house mouse to survive for 24 hours.
Signs of Infestation
The most obvious sign of an infestation is actually seeing a live or dead mouse in your property. However, they are small, fast and able to create undisturbed breeding grounds in less-visited parts of a building, so this is not always possible. Other common signs of infestation include:
- The presence of droppings, which are usually rod-shaped.
- Grease marks on the walls, which usually resemble a smear.
- Signs of gnawing, such as damage to food packaging, boxes, furniture, walls or wires.
- Unusual scratching noises, or squeaking.
- Footprints, especially in dusty environments.
- An unusual and strong smell of urine.
