Think you may have only a few mice? Six mice can easily turn into over 60 mice in a few months!
Let’s look at the quick math.
One female mouse can produce 5 to 10 litters each year, with each litter consisting of 3 to 14 babies. Let’s say a female has 7 litters in one year. If each litter averages 8 babies, that’s a grand total of 56 new mice in your home! Mice can also breed at a young age; at approximately 30-days old they are ready to breed. Their gestation periods last only about 20 days. A few days after giving birth, they are ready to breed again. These little guys will keep busy throughout the year with the food, water, and shelter in your home. Mice don’t have seasonal breeding habits as they can reproduce all year long. The shelter of your home protects them from predators like owls, hawks, and foxes.
