Rodent control is not needed for this little mouse sitting out in the garden. Very soon though, this mouse, and many others, will start moving in to houses, sheds, garages and buildings for shelter from the autumn and winter weather and, very soon, rodent control in Perth will be needed to get rid of mice.
Mice can squeeze in through gaps as small as 6mm, and they can dig in under a house wall, or climb up the wall of the house. That’s how they get inside so easily. They’re very agile too and will crawl up walls, cables and pipes to infest everywhere inside.
Once they are safely sheltered inside, then they start to explore for food by chewing everything they find to see if it is edible. This is how they cause so much mouse damage. For example, a mouse will find a plastic water pipe and nibble it but, of course, plastic is not edible and so the mouse will stop chewing and spit out the plastic. Unfortunately, the mouse does not realise that the whole pipe is not edible and so it chews the next bit of the pipe, and the next and the next and so on. Amazingly, a mouse can chew 6 times every second and so it does not take long for it to chew right through the plastic water pipe!
