House mice almost always live near humans, in or around houses and in fields. House mice should be controlled
because they can transmit diseases, and their droppings can spoil foods. While rats are more harmful to humans than mice, mice cause far significantly greater damage to clothing, furniture, books, and many other household items. Mice may live alone or in groups. Female mice reach breeding age by around 6 weeks old, males reach breeding age by about 8 weeks old. Gestation takes about 18-21 days. There can be between 3-14 pups (mouse babies) per litter and females can produce between 5-10 litters per year.
How long do mice live?
The typical mouse life span is about 1 year in the wild.
