House Mouse (Mus Domesticus)

The common house mouse is small and slender, 3 to 4 inches long, with large ears, small eyes and a pointed nose. The tail is slightly shorter that the body length. Light brown or grey with a lighter underside.


Mice live everywhere outside, and are found more often indoors than rats because they are smaller and more able to fit through small openings. Mice can fit through a crack or hole 1/4 of an inch or larger—about the width of a pencil. They are excellent climbers, which can make rodent control difficult. They can enter premises through vents, small gaps under and around doors and around cables or waste pipes to the premises wall.


Omnivorous and will feed on a number of different food sources and this will depend on the area they have targeted.

Prompt Pest Services Control:

Effective rodent control involves proofing the area to ensure all visible holes and gaps are sealed (possibly using steel wool/bristle strips or another suitable preventative method). To eliminate mice already in your home or premises professional control materials such as baits and traps will be suitably placed.
