House mice typically produce their largest litters in spring and begin breeding at five to six weeks old. The lifespan for most types of mice is approximately one year.
House Mouse Behaviour, Diet, Habitat and Life Cycle
The house mouse is a good climber, can jump up to 12 inches high, and can jump down from a lofty eight feet. House mice can easily squeeze through holes and gaps wider than 1/2 inch. They prefer to nest in dark, secluded areas where there is little chance of disturbance. Their foraging area is usually small, no more than 20 feet. However, if abundant food is nearby, they’ll nest within four to five feet. House mice nibble on food, preferring snacks such as seeds and cereals.
House mice have oversized ears, small bodies and long tails that are normally double the length of their body. They live in environments that allow for total hiding, such as underbrush, doghouses, sheds, barns, or in dark corners and spaces in your home like in vents or walls. House mice newborns reach maturity after about a month for females and two months for males.
