The house mouse came originally from south western Asia from whence it has spread all over the earth, mainly with the help of man. The house mouse has the amazing ability to adapt and it now occurs more or less where man has settled. In most cases the house mouse is associated with buildings, often moving outside in the summer, but always retreating indoors come the autumn. In buildings the house mouse will live anywhere and they are very difficult to keep out. If you can push a Biro (about 7mm) under a door then a mouse can get in...!! Mice are also totally omnivorous, in other words the house mouse will eat anything, even down to the soap in the bathroom or the candles you keep under the sink in case of a power cut, but their favorite foods are cereals and cereal products.

they can do, both with gnawing and soiling products with their urine and droppings is tremendous.
