House Mouse Biology
The house mouse (Mus musculus) is a small, slender rodent that has a slightly pointed nose; small, black, somewhat protruding eyes; large, scantily haired ears, and a nearly hairless tail with obvious scale rings. The adult mouse weighs about 2/5 to 4/5 ounces. They are generally grayish-brown with a gray or buff belly.
Similar mice include the white-footed mice and jumping mice, which have a white belly, and harvest mice, which have grooved upper incisor teeth. Native to central Asia, the species arrived in North America with settlers from Europe and other points of origin.
An adaptable species, the house mouse often lives in close association with humans. Because of this, it is termed one of the “commensal” rodents, along with the Norway and roof rats. Following the arrival on colonists’ ships, house mice spread across North America and are now found in every state, including coastal areas of Alaska and the southern parts of Canada.
The Habitat of the House Mouse
House mice live in and around homes, farms, and commercial establishments, as well as in open fields and agricultural lands. The onset of cold weather each fall in temperate regions is said to cause mice to move into structures in search of shelter and food.
Damage Caused By Rats
Rats consume and contaminate foodstuffs and animal feed. They also damage containers and packaging materials in which foods and feed are stored. Norway and roof rats can cause complications by gnawing on electrical wires and wooden structures (doors, ledges, or walls) and tearing up insulation in walls and ceilings for nesting.
Norway rats may undermine building foundations and slabs with their burrowing activities. They may also gnaw on all types of materials, including soft metals such as copper and lead as well as plastic and wood. If roof rats are living in the attic of a residence, they can cause considerable damage with their gnawing and nest-building activities.
Among the diseases that rats may transmit to humans or livestock are murine typhus, leptospirosis, trichinosis, salmonella (food poisoning), and rat bite fever. Plague is a disease that can be carried by both roof and Norway rats, but in California, it is more commonly associated with ground squirrels, chipmunks, and native wood rats.
