What do mice look like?
The most common mouse found in buildings is the house mouse. The fur colour varies between light brown and grey, and the body length varies between 60- 90mm, and the tail can add 100mm. Often, the droppings found are black, rod-shaped, and 3 - 6mm long.
Where do mice live?
Mice live in nests, which are often built inside houses, especially during the winter. Nests are built wherever there is access to a good source of food. Spaces under floors and lofts are favoured places for nests built out of cloth, wool, and paper.
Mouse holes are normally 20 - 30mm in diameter, and mice are mainly active at night and can be heard running about as they search for food. Mice can squeeze through cracks as small as 5mm.
Mice tend to live in attics and loft spaces due to the ease of access, warmth and safety. Due to this, we offer a range of attic rodent proofing services to help stop mice from using your loft or attics space.
What do mice eat?
Their favourite foods are cereal products, although they will eat almost anything. Most of the damage they do is by gnawing and ripping open packets. They also foul food with urine and droppings and gnaw their way through the wood to get to food sources.
