As the name suggests, the house mouse lives predominantly indoors, rarely venturing outside. Their small size makes unknowingly transporting them in goods and materials very easy. An extremely adaptable rodent, the house mouse is believed to be one of the most numerous mammals on earth second only to humans.
Like rats, mice are capable of transmitting diseases such as Leptospirosis, Salmonellosis and Plague.
They can also cause sever damage to building structures and their contents through their continuous gnawing.
