Rodents are among the most successful mammals on the planet, they are high adaptable to their surroundings and therefore are able to survive in almost any type of surroundings. When the conditions are favorable Mice can reproduce quickly. They are able to utilize sophisticated behavior pattern to avoid dangers from their predators including us.
There are over 1,700 species of Rodents and they comprise the largest order of Mammals. It is no wonder they can cause homeowners great frustration and distress.
Physical characteristics of the house mouse are they are generally small and slender bodies and their ears are moderately large and distinct. Body length 5 to 9 inches; tail 2.3 to 3.9 inches; and weight 0.6 – 0.8 ounce. Grayish brown hair on top, relatively large ears, and a dusky-scaly, nearly hairless tail. The hair on its bottom is only slightly lighter than the hair on its top, and it has non-grooved incisors.
Occasionally a house mouse will be confused with a young rat, however a young rat’s head and feet appear large and out of proportion to the body. The mouse’s head and feet are in proportion to the body.
Mice spread to Europe from Asia and appeared in the 16th century in the New World as immigrants on the ships of explorers. The house mouse appeared in North America sometime in the 17th century, and has been very effective at increasing their populations. House mouse subspecies can now be found across the world. Each mouse makes their own nest, but will share burrows with other individuals within the colony. The house mouse can co-habit with humans, living under large appliances or inside the walls of homes.
Underground burrows, which some subspecies equip with storage rooms. The house mouse does not stray far from cover, with the best habitats offering copious amounts of food, water and places to hide. Their home ranges vary, from 10 feet for some indoor mice, to more than two miles for some outsiders.
The house mouse is a social species and lives in groups with others, and aggressive males have hierarchical ranks and tend to dominate colonies. Each group lives in a territory bound by scent markers, and animals within the colony have their own nests. Mice will groom each other and display both aggressive and submissive postures.
Mice can breed throughout the year, Gestation period of 21 days litter will range from 2 to 13 mice. Mice can reproduce copiously, gestations takes three weeks.
Scary thought a long lived female mouse can produce 10 litters spaced out, which will be 42 to 60 offspring in a year.
Mouse Glue traps are available in mouse and rat size, as boards or trays as scented or unscented traps, covered or uncovered.
Mouse Glue traps are non toxic and easy and quick to use. Rodent Glue traps also provide the advantage of monitoring for insects and a mousetrap.
