As carriers of disease and nibblers of stored food mice are classed as a major pest. They can also manipulate their body to squeeze through very small holes.
Usually nocturnal creatures mice can reproduce every 5-10 weeks with a litter of 4-8 young. Any mouse infestation should be tackled as soon as possible to avoid a dramatic increase in the population.
Suggested positioning of traps:
Look for mouse droppings to show activity, traps should ideally be palced along a wall or secluded area rather than in the open.
Chocolate, sweet smelling food, cereal, dog biscuits
Note: Unfortunately the belief that mice prefer cheese is a myth.
