There are over 30 known species of mice, however the house and field mouse are probably the best know.
Mice can be identified by their pointed nose, small round ears and long almost hairless tail that can grow as long as their body.
Of note whilst mice have very good hearing and a good sense of smell they have very poor eyesight. Mice use their whiskers to help feel the surfaces they are walking along and in addition to sense changes in temperature.
Mainly nocturnal, mice tend to build their nests close to a source of food. As mice eat 15 – 20 times a day it may explain why they build their nests close to a source of food. Tending only to travel up to 8 m from their nests to find food.
Unfortunately mice can cause extensive damage with their gnawing, nest building and defecation.
