House Mouse

Why are mice considered pests?

The main reasons mice are considered pests are through the diseases they spread, the damage they can cause and as a legal obligation.

Mice and Diseases

Mice can carry many nasty diseases which can often include:

  • Salmonella
  • Listeria

These have the potential to spread to humans, normally through urine, droppings or bedding.

Mice have to mark their territory with their urine and with their sporadic eating habits, will build nests near food sources. They carry dirt and bacteria around with them, leaving it everywhere they travel. This represents a significant risk to public health.

Property Damage

These gnawing nuisances can also cause a lot of damage to properties, with many instances of electrical fires and floods being attributed to them.

Mice have to gnaw to keep their teeth in good shape and aren’t particularly fussy about what they chew on. Water and gas pipework, electrical cables and timber structures are all at risk and if gnawed through, have the potential to cause catastrophic damage.

Legal Obligations

The Prevention of Damage by Pests Act 1949 ensures property owners have a legal obligation to keep premises rodent free and if rodents pose a threat to public health or property, should be reported to the local authority

Are there any signs I have a mouse infestation?

Sounds

You may hear mice gnawing, scratching or moving around in loft spaces, inside a wall cavity or under your floorboards. Rats are nocturnal and will be more active throughout the night.

Droppings

Mice droppings are one of the most common signs of a mouse infestation. They are black and are about the size of a grain of rice. Mice droppings are usually found under the kitchen sink, in roof spaces and under central heating boilers. A single mouse can leave around 80 droppings a day.

Smear marks

An unusual but common tell tale sign. Mice often leave a greasy mark from their coat and this is found on surfaces that they repeatedly pass along while looking for food.

Sightings

The House Mouse can measure between 6-9 cm, with the tail generally being of a similar length to the body. Their muzzle is pointed and they have large ears and eyes with small feet. Nests may be found in loft spaces, under floorboards or in airing cupboards.
