Facts You Didn’t Know About Mice

So you thought you knew everything about mice. Yes, these creatures may look cute and adorable at first glance, but only those with a mice infestation at home know how irritating they are.

Rodents such as mice are filthy creatures that carry germs wherever they go and spread disease. If you have a mice infestation at your place, wherever you are, you should take steps to do something about it.

We make humane mouse traps for mice, based on a catch and release mechanism. These mouse traps make it possible for you to get rid of the mice in a humane manner, without killing them or hurting them.

After all, this is the 21st century, right? We cannot use the old ways of getting rid of mice such as rat poison or glues anymore.

Meanwhile, here are some facts that you didn’t know about mice:

#1: Mice reproduce rapidly.

Did you know that a female mouse that is just 2 months old can start breeding and has 12 babies every 3 weeks?! These are stunning numbers! This means just one female mouse can produce 150 babies a year. Her babies go on to produce babies and before you know what’s happening, you have a full-blown case of rat infestation. That’s why you should do everything possible to get rid of the mice in your home, even if you have just one or two of them. There’s no telling how many there are going to be in say 3 to 6 months from now.

#2: Mice have short lives

The average lifespan of a regular house mouse is only 5 months. A lab mouse or a pet mouse can live much longer, up to 2 years. But house mice have short life spans. Don’t expect them to simply die away naturally though, they are going to breed rapidly and produce dozens of little mice even though they have a life span of only 4 to 6 months at best.

#3: Mice can't break a sweat

Did you know that mice don’t have sweat glands and cannot really sweat? This makes it very difficult for them to survive in hot temperatures of 99°F or more.

#4: Mice can't vommit

Did you know that the stomach of a typical mouse is divided into two sections and separated by a ridge? This means if the mice eat anything toxic, such as poison-laced bait, it cannot get rid of that from vomiting. That’s why rat poison is so effective at killing mice. We don’t advocate rat poison as it is a very cruel and inhuman way of getting rid of mice. There are better ways to do the job.

#5: Mice eat absolutely anything

There is nothing that mice wouldn’t eat. They love to nibble on seeds and grains. But if this is not available, they are happy to eat something else, such as candy and meat. Believe it or not, if nothing is available, mice end up eating each other! Yes, nature can be very cruel at times, but who can argue with nature!

#6: Mice are multi-talented

They can climb, jump and even swim!

#7: Mice put family first

If you find one, be sure he didn’t come on his own, his family isn’t far. Mice have a social hierarchy – especially among the males.

We make humane mouse traps that catch mice without killing or harming them. Our mouse traps are basically catch-and-release traps and are certainly more sophisticated than the traditional models that you’re probably familiar with. Do have a look!
