A mouse is such a cute little creature isn't it? So tiny and cuddly and
scampering backwards and forwards. If that's your view then maybe you
keep a mouse as a pet in a cage.
However if they are running free in
your house you may well have a different opinion! They eat your food,
contaminate work surfaces with salmonella infected faeces. You never
see them but they are lurking there. Mouse control is needed!
First, let's make sure you have identified the creature correctly. Mice
are around 15cm (6 inches) long (including the tail), about 10 cm (4
inches) high and are gray or brown in colour. They have relatively small
eyes and big ears. They look like the picture above.

If you never see the mouse in your house you can still get a pretty
good idea if it's a mouse or not. Small droppings or gnawed furnishings
are a good sign. You may come across their nests in sheltered areas, the
nest being made from finely shredded paper or similar substances.
Lastly, mice have an identifiable musky smell.
It's unusual to have just one mouse in the house because mice go in
pairs and they breed very quickly! A female mouse will produce around 7
litters a year each of about 5 mice. Baby mice reach maturity in around
8 weeks and live for just less than a year. Do your own maths and you
can see the problem can get out of hand very, very quickly.
There are three major methods of mouse control. The most common is
the mouse trap and there are several variations on this theme. The idea
is to trap the mouse either alive or dead depending on the trap. You
then dispose of it.
The second method of mouse control is some form of
bait which kills the
mouse. Care has to be taken with poisons because humans (especially)
will be severely affected if they eat it and other wild life and your
pets may be affected as well.
The third method is sonic control. Ultrasonic waves disturb the mice
until they give up and go elsewhere. They don't harm your cat or dog and
a good model will cover an area of 400 sq m.

A great invention, the sonic mouse and rat repeller. The
device emits ultrasonic waves which disturb mice and rats.
Eventually the mice choose to go elsewhere because they are
constantly distracted by the device.
It's safe for all your
pets, other wildlife and humans so it's one of the safest
solutions around. It works over an area of 400 sq m so one
should cover the whole of the house
This product is chemical free and will cause no secondary
poisoning. The mixture relies on the nature of a mouse's body
and causes dehydration. The mouse will then retreat back to
its nest, fall into a coma and die. The bait is made from
ground maize, wheat and sweet molasses to attract the mouse.
Much safer to have around the house than other chemical based
Mouse control with no chemicals or other poisons so this
device is very safe.

the mouse can be disposed of without ever touching the
it. The device can be used over and over again and it is
sold as a double pack for good value.
