House Mouse
(Mus musculus)

The House Mouse is probably one of the most successful living mammals, with a widespread distribution throughout Australia and the world. At times it may reach plague proportions. Like humans, it is so successful because of its adaptability in utilizing available resources.

Populations can increase quickly as the House Mouse is able to breed at two months of age and its litter size is between four and eight. Under the best conditions, female house mice can have litters every 40 to 50 days.

When house mice live in or around structures, they almost always cause some degree of economic damage. In homes and commercial buildings, they may feed on various stored food items or pet foods in addition, they usually contaminate foodstuffs with their urine, droppings, and hair.
