As summer fades into Autumn, the mice of Perth start their search for a cosy home and food store. This is assisted by their adaptability. Mice are very capable at swimming, running and climbing. They can jump up to 12 inches!
The humble house mouse in Perth, Western Australia is by far the most prolific mammal on earth. Females can breed from when they are 40 days old and can produce up to 12 litters of up to 12 pups a year.
Chambers Pest Control Perth recommends the following to ensure you don’t have a mouse house:
- Tidy the garden and ensure there is no debris or water stagnating
- Seal all food in airtight containers
- Block up any holes in walls, ceilings and skirting boards
Mice are curious creatures and will proactively explore anything potentially nutritional. The creatures prefer human food due to high fat, protein, and sugar content. Mice are avid food storers – compounding the pest problem by causing insect infestation as well.
