Mouse in Nature

House Mice

Mice are omnivorous and are good at adapting to local environments but generally in rural environments eat cereals, seeds etc, where they consume an average of 2-3 grams of food per day. Whilst they will drink free water they can in many cases survive without it, obtaining sufficient moisture from their food.
 
Mice will typically live up to 1 year, reach sexual maturity in 6 weeks and can have as many as 8 litters per annum with the average litter size being about 5.

Common Rat

Rats are omnivorous and whilst they generally feed on cereals and grains, if hungry they can take small chicks and eggs. One of the main characteristics of Rats is that they are Neophobic – very wary of anything new and they can take 4-5 days before they except a new object into their environment.

They prefer small-enclosed spaces and get around by smell & touch. They like to be up against something as they travel like a wall or pipe. Contrary to popular beliefs regarding Rats being dirty they are in fact very clean animals and spend up to 20% of their time grooming.

They are however carriers of a number of diseases, the most publicised of which is Weils Disease which can be fatal to humans. Rats take between 2-3 months to reach sexual maturity and can have up to 7 litters per year with the average litter size being about 8. The other Irish rat is the Ship Rat or Black Rat which is now very rare and restricted to a few localised port sites.

TESTIMONIAL

Hear It from Our Clients

Fantastic, efficient service from both Paul and Marcus. There was a thorough inspection of both the effects of the mice problem we had, as well as the root cause of it. The work was done over three spaced visits to ensure the mice were gone and the drains cemented to prevent future infestations. Great communication from both Paul and Marcus-they always answer the phone or return calls or texts. They made themselves available at short notice when it was needed- one of the traps caught a mouse. The price was exactly as quoted. Excellent service. Would definitely recommend and use again ourselves.

Paul is a superhero! We moved into a new rental and were shocked to find we had rats living out our back garden. (Not contributing rent, I might add!) Paul immediately identified the access point from our sewage system and filled it on the spot. (He even filled some other gaps in the side of the house that might become future access points) He then investigated our drains and cleared all debris the rats had created from digging and applied a one-way rat blocker in the drain to 100% prevent the rats from ever entering the house via that system. Finally rat traps were put around the garden and were checked on a weekly basis diligently until the rat problem was no more.
