We are studying mice this month. Mice have excellent senses, except for their eyesight. They cannot see beyond 6 inches and they are colour blind. #PestOfTheMonth #Mice

Mice don't waste any time! If the conditions are favourable, female mice can become pregnant again soon after giving birth. They produce 7-8 litters per year. #PestOfTheMonth #Mice

Mice can jump a foot into the air and jump down around 8ft without injuring themselves. That is an impressive feat! #PestOfTheMonth #Mice

Mice eat around 20% of their bodyweight each day and will visit 20 to 30 food sites if available. If only one food source is available they can make 200 visits per night.

Our October Pest of the Month are those cheeky little mice!

By flattening out their bodies, mice can squeeze through gaps as small as 6mm. #PestOfTheMonth #Mice

The presence of pigeons in any food handling premises is unacceptable. Food Hygiene Regulations mean that the presence of pigeons could result in an offence being committed. E.g. Pigeon contamination can render food unfit for human consumption #FeralPigeons #PestoftheMonth

The estimated damages per feral pigeon per year including pollution of buildings, streets and places, as well as hygienic costs, agricultural costs and bird strikes range from £20.89 – 29.53 per bird. Quite a price to pay! #FeralPigeons #PestoftheMonth

Danger from above! The peregrine is now being introduced into towns & cities as a ‘natural’ feral pigeon control. The peregrine is the fastest bird on the planet when in a dive and can achieve speeds in excess of 200 mph, over 130 mph faster than a #FeralPigeons #PestoftheMonth

The word ‘pigeon’ is derived from the Latin word ‘pipio’, which means ‘young bird’. The word then passed into Old French as ‘pijon’ and thus the English name ‘pigeon’ was derived, which is now used the world over as a common name for the rock dove #FeralPigeons #PestoftheMonth
