If you come across a baby mouse in your home, it might seem harmless. However, this can be an indication that you have a mouse infestation in the home. After all, the only way baby mice could be in your home is if adult mice are breeding there. That means you have adult mice as well as babies to deal with.
Baby mice are relatively harmless. They are hairless and blind when born. They don’t even develop hearing until they are around a week old. However, these mice grow up fast. After they’re weaned at three weeks, they move on to eating solid foods which might be found in your home.
It’s also important to realize that mice start breeding quickly. It can occur when they are about five to six weeks old. On top of that, mice breed during every season so there is no downtime. They can even breed at night as male mice make noises that call out to females in the house.
Female mice go in heat every four or five days. They carry the babies for about three weeks and then have five to 12 babies. These mice can be pregnant as often as 10 times a year, which can quickly cause them to overrun your home.
The best way to prevent baby mice from your house is by getting rid of the adults. If you see signs of mice, such as gnawing on food items, droppings, and noises in the wall, you want to take action quickly. Mouse repellents are available but it’s best to ensure the mice can’t get inside to begin with. An exterminator can help you determine the best method to handle this problem.
For instance, you want to make sure all food is sealed and the kitchen is cleaned. Mouse nesting materials should not be allowed to build up in your basement or garage. Removing old clothes, cardboard boxes, and linens from the home can also help. Cracks in the foundation and doors can also let mice inside.
