About Pest Animal Delaware and Our Services:
Mice belong to a group of small rodents. Often confused with rats, mice can vary in color, but
keep their small size that ranges from 1 to 7 inches in length. Mice have small, long heads with
pointy mousses. Their ears are small and round. Their bodies are small and round as well, along
with their long and usually balled tails. Mice are usually very light in weight and capable of
climbing and getting into most hostile of spaces. The color of the mice fur usually varies from
very pale grey to even dark brown. Due to their likeable appearance, Delaware mice are often kept as pets
in human homes. Due to their biology, mice are also often used in purpose of medical research.
In fact, the chemical and neurological responses in mice are quite comparable to those in humans. For this reason, mice, along with rats, are frequently used in various laboratory, medical and pharmaceutical research. Mice are omnivorous mammals. This means that their inner biological systems are similar to those of other mammal animals. Female mice breastfeed their offspring until the babies grow old enough to look for food on their own. Given that Delaware mice are omnivorous, they feed on a variety of types of foods. Mice can feed on fruits, vegetables, meats and grains, although they absorb the most nutritional value out of meat. What is specific about mice is their elasticity and the ability to flatten their bodies, to get through narrow spaces. Their bones are quite elastic, and their internal organs as well. Similar to cats, the internal organs in mice can somewhat dislocate to allow them to flatten their bodies, returning to normal shape after the exterior pressure stops affecting them. This is the reason why mice usually get inside of human households in such an easy manner.
They are capable of passing through the tiniest of holes and gaps, like those in door and window frames, due to their natural flexibility. Similar to rats, mice are capable of procreating with incredible speed. Rats reach maturity at only 4 weeks, which means that at this time they will be capable of breeding. However, breeding in such early stage can be difficult for female Delaware mice, and they often die while giving birth. The male mouse is called “buck” and the female mouse is called “doe”. Mice usually have between five and ten litters per year, which means that their population, if not controlled, can grow very fast. The gestation period in mice is between 19 and 21 days. An average doe can give birth to anywhere between 3 and 14 babies. Since mice began mating at a very young age, those litters that come from parents that are not siblings are considered to be healthier than those who are a product of in-breeding.
Fields are usually mice's natural habitat. They prefer to nest in sheltered, dark areas, although they will spend the day running around the field and picking up food. Some of the mice species will burrow nests underground, although it is not their first choice when it comes to residing in nature. Although Delaware mice prefer to live in the wild, they often reside in populated areas, like abandoned buildings, and often human households. Mice also often live underground in populated areas, and can be found inside sewage pipes and canals. Mice often enter human households if drawn with the opportunity for food and shelter.
