Field Mouse (Apodemussylvaticus)
Slightly larger than the House Mouse weighing in at around 25g. Field Mice enter houses, but can more commonly be found in sheds, garages and outhouses. Field Mice tend to cover trays of bait and fill bait boxes with insulation and other materials when baits are laid. Field Mice droppings are also slightly larger and rounder than House Mouse droppings.
Field Mouse Removal
As mice feed at numerous places, the key to successful control is to have a large number of baiting points. Baits containing anticoagulants are generally effective, with a variety of formulations available including whole grain, blocks and pastes.
Traps can also be an effective method to quickly reduce large numbers of mice and proofing / housekeeping should be considered to offer a longer term solution.
