Did you know that house mice are known for their quick reproduction? One female house mouse has the ability to produce up to 8 litters per year!

Another Happy Customer Review:

“Hired Westside to do a complete sealing up of the roof line and vents from squirrels, patch up openings, and full basement clean up. They were great to work with, always showed up on time and professional and knowledgeable.They are by far the best pest control company I’ve worked with and I’ve worked with quite a few on my last house. I would recommend these guys to anyone who needs pest services without a doubt. Definitely 5/5 stars. Thanks again for all of your help Westside!”

House Mouse Behaviour & Diet

In the wild, mice live under a year due to predation and harsh environments. However, in protected environments such as your home, mice can live two to three years and breed a lot. One female can have between 5 and 10 litters per year, so the population can increase very quickly!

Mice will eat almost anything but they prefer cereals and insects. Keeping a spotless kitchen is an essential part of getting any mouse infestation under control.

Signs of Infestation

Mice are arguably the most difficult pest to eradicate. Several (4-6) service visits is common for mice and rodent control. House mice are more active in the evening and if you hear them climbing along walls or scurrying their way along the floor (most likely running from a hiding place) you’ll know you have a house mouse infestation.

Other signs to look for:

  • Droppings (3-6 mm long with pointed ends)
  • Footprints
  • Tunnels (House mice like to build nests in dark, soft areas such as insulation)
  • Sounds (scratching walls, squealing and running across the ceiling are common)
  • Odour (House mice communicate with other rodents and a strong indicator of infestation)
