The rodent we all dislike!
The house mouse (Mus Musculus)measures about 6 in. long and weighs under 1 oz . It has gray to brown fur, large rounded ears, a pointed muzzle, and a naked scaley tail. An omnivorous feeder, it causes great destruction and contamination of food supplies. Its nests are built of available chewable materials, such as clothing and paper. It may carry human diseases, such as typhoid and spotted fever.
