Get Rid of House Mouse Infestation with Our Affordable Service in Brisbane

House mice are common pests that can invade many homes and offices yearly. They can breed quickly, survive on little food and water, and sneak into buildings through small gaps. Once inside, they look for cluttered areas where they can find food and nesting materials.

They can also damage your property, contaminate your food, and spread diseases through their urine and droppings. Moreover, they can trigger asthma attacks and allergic reactions in people who are sensitive to them.

House mice have greyish-brown fur on their backs and cream-coloured fur on their bellies. Their fur colour may vary depending on their environment. They have a round body shape, usually 6.3cm to 9.5cm inches long, with about 7cm to 10cm long tails.

House mice can breed very quickly. A female mouse can get pregnant every month or so and give birth to up to 13 babies. Usually, she has about 5five or 6six babies in each litter. The babies take less than three weeks to develop inside their wombs.

When house mice are born, they have no hair, ears, or eyes. They depend on their mother’s milk for nourishment. After a few days, their ears start to grow, and they get some fur on their bodies. After two weeks, their eyes open, and they can see the world around them. After three weeks, they stop drinking milk and start eating solid food.

The young mice then explore their environment and look for things to eat. Next, the male mice fight with each other to claim their own space, while the female mice stay close to their mother for a while. Female mice can start having babies when they are about six weeks old.

House mice are omnivorous rodents that can eat various foods, such as grains, fruits, seeds, insects, nuts, and human leftovers. Unfortunately, they can cause damage to crops and gardens by feeding on them.

Mostly, they live in urban areas but can survive in natural habitats. They usually seek shelter in hidden places like cracks in the ground, burrows under the soil, or reed beds inside buildings.

Indications of a House Mouse Infestation

You may have a house mouse infestation if you notice any of these signs on your property: 

  • Objects that mice have chewed on leave rough or smooth marks.
  • Small, rod-shaped droppings with pointed ends, either fresh and moist or old and dry. They are about 32mm to 65mm long and are usually found near food sources or rodent pathways.
  • The oil causes dark stains or smears on walls and other surfaces from the mice’s fur.
  • Nests made of shredded materials like insulation, grass, or newspaper in hidden places like behind cabinets, in the garage, or in the attic.
  • A strong smell of ammonia from the mice’s urine if there are many of them.
  • Food items in your kitchen that have been damaged by mice nibbling on them.
