The Common House Mouse

Common house mouse

The house mouse (Mus musculus) is considered one of the most troublesome and economically important pests in the United States. House mice live and thrive under a variety of conditions in and around homes and farms. House mice are gray or brown rodents with relatively large ears and small eyes. An adult weighs about 1/2 ounce and is about 5 1/2 to 7 1/2 inches long, including the 3 to 4 inch tail. House mice usually run, walk or stand on all fours, but when eating, fighting or orienting themselves, they stand only on the hind legs, supported by the tail. Mice are good jumpers, climbers and swimmers. House mice primarily feed on plant matter, but they will also accept meat and dairy products. Although they are generally known to like fruits, they are repelled by the scent of many varieties of artificial fruit scent, for example strawberry- or vanilla-scented candles. The reason for this is unknown, although it dates back to antiquity, when Roman Senators used candles scented with strawberry oils to keep mice out of their sleeping chambers. They will drink water but require little of it, relying mainly on the moisture present in their food. (supplied by Floridian Nature)

A Much Larger Rodent and An Even Bigger Problem Is The Roof Rat

Have you ever heard scurrying in your walls? Ever gone up to the attic in December to find a nest of rats living in your wrapping paper box? How about opening up your pantry to find droppings, or finding the fruit on your tree hollowed out?

You are not alone. Many people have this problem, specifically with Roof Rats. They are the most common and disease-ridden pests in the state of Florida. Their long, scaly, black tails and their sleek body identify them.

They usually only come out at night, at the time of year when fruit begins to ripen. Along with fruit, Roof Rats consume anything from dog food to your own pantry items, and can chew their way into your house through soffits, hollow walls, insulation, wires, pipes, and any holes that may exist. They can squeeze through a hole 1/4 the size of their body.

Along with destroying your home, Roof Rats are host to a plethora of diseases. If a rat bites a person, they could contract Rat Bite Fever, which shows symptoms of the flu, and could be fatal.A Large Roof Rat Hantavirus is contracted by stirring up the urine and droppings of a rat, resulting in fever, body aches, chills, and stomach problems. If the urine enters a minor cut, a person could contract Weil’s Disease, resulting in fever and kidney failure. Rats are also known to carry lime disease, which is contracted by tick bites, causing skin lesions, fever, and headaches.

Roof Rats can produce a litter once or twice a month, with about eight to nine pups each time.

Roof Rats are abundant and the problems associated with them are serious, and that is why Nuisance Wildlife Trapper is here to help you.
