Columbia Wildlife Removal Tip of the Month

The House Mouse
The mouse is one of the most commonly found rodents on earth. Because of their high breeding rate and ability to adapt to virtually any environment, Columbia mice can be found in most habitats on earth. They come in a variety of species, some domesticated, and some used for scientific and research purposes, making them one of the most widely known South Carolina animals on earth.

A South Carolina mouse (plural is mice) typically has a pointed snout and small ears that are rounded. The most common form of mouse is the common house mouse, which is not only found in many homes as a wild animal, but has also been domesticated and is a pet for many people. Mice can be found in any place in your home where there is an access point of at least one-quarter of an inch in diameter. They frequently reside in the walls, attics, and storage areas of homes because they places offer them a warm place to live and shelter from the elements. They are also often a secure place where they are free from predators.

The birth process for a Columbia mouse can last as short as 25 days from conception up until about 40 days. Usually within two weeks after birth mice are able to survive on their own and will usually begin to the join the group in the process of protection and food gathering. Mice are different than many kinds of rodents, in that they prefer to live in a large communities. This allows them a greater degree of protection and can also aid in their ability to gather food for the community. During sleeping periods South Carolina mice will congregate in large groups to share warmth and to protect them from the elements.

Mice will eat just about anything. Their large front teeth give them the ability to eat through or bite at most things, including metals. Some South Carolina mice have been known to eat through metal plating to get into areas of a home or business, or to gain access to food stuffs that are secured in metal containers. The teeth are incredibly strong and are not only used for feeding and gnawing but also as an aid in protection. The diet of most mice consists of food particles and garbage, bugs, insects and plants. These creatures are true omnivores, in that there is very little that they will not eat. Survival is their primary role, and so most things are seen as a viable food option. The Columbia mouse is a nocturnal animal, meaning it prefers to hunt, gather and explore at night. This provides it a greater degree of protection from predators, who are not able to locate the critters as well.

Performing these tasks at night is even greater benefit, considering that Columbia mice have very poor eye sight. Much like the bat, the mouse relies mostly on its incredible sense of hearing to locate potential dangers, and its sense of smell is quite exceptional as well. This helps the creature to find food from long distances away, and also aids in defense, as it can smell predators usually long before the predator can locate them. Many different animals are predators to the mouse. This includes such beasts as dogs, cats, birds, snakes, foxes and arthropods. Because mice are able to adapt to such a wide variety of environments, they are a main staple of food for so many predators. Most South Carolina mice prefer to burrow into places to make their homes. The common field mouse will create nests in holes in the ground or in the areas under surface roots from trees. It is not uncommon to find hundreds of mice congregated in one location if the space permits. It is rare to find a single mouse living on his or her own, primarily because it is simply not safe for the beast to live on its own this way. Too many predators would have easy access to the critter in this arrangement.

While many consider mice to be cure Columbia animals, they are the carriers of a large variety of illnesses. The diseases and parasites are often found within their fecal matter, and can be harmful to adults just be breathing near where the waste has been dropped. Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome is contracting by breathing in the hantavirus, which becomes airborne after a mouse has dropped its waste. This is why cleanup must be done with extreme caution. Mice are often used in experimentation because the brain chemistry of mice is quite similar to that of human beings. It is quite common for South Carolina mice to be used in psychological kinds of testing for this reason. Mice are also a tasty treat in many cultures throughout the world. Mouse can be served in a variety of ways and is a dietary staple in many countries.
