Faqs About Mice

Mice are small rodents, resembling diminutive rats. They usually have pointed snouts and small ears. The body is typically elongated with slender, usually hairless tails, but different types of mice show large variations. Mice are social animals, preferring to live in groups. Male rivalry can become harmful for the animals, especially when a group is confined to a small space. The natural habitats of the mouse are very diverse. Mice can be found in forests, savannahs, grasslands and rocky habitats, as well as in urban settings.

Harmful Effects

Mice can be harmful pest, damaging and eating crops and spreading diseases through their parasites and feces. In the Western United States, breathing dust that has come in contact with mouse feces has been linked to the deadly hantavirus. The original motivation for the domestication of cats is thought to have been for their predation of mice and their relatives, the rats. There are diseases known to be spread by mice and rats which include Rickettsial pox (similar to chicken pox), rat bite fever, food poisoning (salmonellosis, when food, food preparation surfaces or dishes are contaminated by saliva, urine or feces from a mouse), tapeworms, hantavirus, plague.
