Usually brown or grey in colour. Mice will eat pretty much most types of food available but they do have a preference for cereals. They breed even more rapidly than rats. Each female can have between 4 and 16 young each time and up to 10 litters per year. Their reproduction in theory could produce nearly 2000 offspring in a year from a breeding pair.
They need to gnaw to keep their teeth down and this results in razor sharp teeth which allows them to chew through soft metal, wood and even some types of stone.
Mice live for about 12 months. Because of the fact that they do not have a need for a ready supply of water they can quite comfortably live indoors.
Mice can be responsible for the spread of salmonella. As they travel along they dribble urine as they are moving. It is essential therefore to disinfect the general area if you are suspicious about having an infestation in your home or workplace.
