Mice Species

  • Field Mouse

    (Apodemus sylvaticus)

    Appearance

    The field mouse will normally be a sandy colour on the head and back, whilst they will have yellowish fur on the flanks and white fur on the belly. A small streak of yellow can sometimes also be found on the chest of a field mouse. The adult head and body will measure about 80-100mm in length and the tail can reach between 70 - 90mm. The male will weigh around 25g whilst the female will be slightly smaller at 20g.

    Habits

    In late spring and early summer, when seeds are less available to the field mice, the most important source of food will be small snails and insects.

  • House Mouse

    (Mus domesticus)

    Appearance

    The size of a house mouse is around 7-10cm in length with a tail around the same length. It will weigh around 12-30g, but their small feet and head with large eyes and ears distinguish them from the young brown rat.

    Habits

    The preferred food of a house mouse is cereals. A house mouse will eat around 3g of food a day and can survive without any extra water.

  • Yellow Necked Field Mouse

    (Apodemus flavicollis)

    Appearance

    The yellow necked field mouse' adult head and body measures around 95 to 120mm in length. The tails measures 75 to 110mm. The weight of the yellow necked field mouse is around 14 to 45g. With brown fur on their backs and white on the underside, they have a distinctive complete band of yellow fur around their neck. You will also notice their large ears, protruding eyes and a long tail. 

    Habits

    More likely to enter buildings than wood mice, the yellow necked field mouse prefer mature broad-leafed woodland and habitats such as hedges and rural gardens. Being more likely to enter buildings, they can spoil or consume stored food and interfere with electrical wiring.
