house mouse, Mus domesticus
House mice are the most common commensal rodent. Physically, they are grey, weigh up to an ounce, their bodies are 3 to 4 inches long and the tail an additional 4 inches. The female reaches sexual maturity in 35 days and produces about 8 litters a year, with an average of 6 young baby mice per litter. As you can imagine, with 35 weaned mice per adult female, populations can build rapidly in your home. For this reason, it is best to contact a pest control specialist immediately if you have mice. We provide expert mice removal in Hamilton, Burlington, Oakville, and surrounding areas. Removal of mice is done in the same manner as other rodents, by using anticoagulants.
