The type of mouse we generally deal with here in the Greater Toronto Area is the House mouse. House mice have abilities that allow them to enter buildings and infest all the way to the top into the attic spaces. A House mouse can jump vertically a distance of approximately 30 cm’s and fit through a 12 mm diameter hole. It’s no wonder how every home can expect to have some sort of mice population. When mice are spotted regularly in a house, it means that their population has reached unacceptable levels and they have the run of the place. House mice reach maturity in six weeks and their life length is near one year.
During birth a female mouse can have 5 to 6 babies 8 times within it’s life time. Mice do not really have seasons for births, they reproduce when the environment and food conditions are favorable.
Like other rodents such as squirrels, mice require to keep their teeth sharp. Using their upper and lower teeth they will gnaw together to keep them sharp and in check. They do this because their teeth continuously grow and need to be trimmed and sharpened. As a result of this practice we can hear them at times within the walls or ceilings of our homes. House mice are able to chew through wood, aluminum, plastic and asphalt. Lastly these mice are nocturnal and prefer to be active during night time.
