Mice pest control in London. Mice do not hibernate and are a problem all year round. House mice are already living in and around wherever we are. But as the weather gets colder, those field mice currently surviving outdoors will look for warmer places to nest and begin to move indoors.
They are highly adaptable and won’t hesitate to take advantage of a cosy human structure during the winter months. Food is also an issue – they begin to scavenge closer to humans, as their own sources are no longer plentiful.

The house mouse has a typical mouse profile: small feet with big eyes and thinly-haired ears, and a pointed snout with thin whiskers. Their body length ranges between 60-90mm, and the tail generally equals the length of its body, adding another 90mm. If you have problems call Mice Pest Control in Edgware, and let them take the problem for you!
They weigh less than 25g, and their fur colour is uniformly light brown and grey, right down to the tail which has sparse hairs on it. And keep those pegs handy – they have a really distinctive, strong smell so you’ll know if you have a large infestation of these unwanted guests.
A field mouse has sandy brown fur with a lighter underside. As it mainly lives outdoors, it has bigger eyes and ears than a house mouse. This is an adaptation to avoid predation. Field mice also have long tails, making them quite agile climbers. Juveniles are greyer overall, still with larger ears, hind feet and tails than house mice.
