Mice (Mus musculus)

There are two types of mice in Britain which can become pests: the house mouse and the field mouse. The house mouse is most likely to be a domestic pest, weighs about 30 grams (1 ounce) and is about 90 mm long (3 1/2 inches) excluding its tail. It usually has a brown back and is grey underneath. Its ears are fairly large in relation to its body and its feet are small. Its tail is the same length as its head and body. The long-tailed field mouse is more common on agricultural land but is not generally considered a pest unless it takes up residence indoors.
