House mouse

Mice (Mus domesticus) are considered pests because of their diet, reproductive capacity and gnawing behaviour. When seasonal conditions are favourable, their numbers can increase to a level where they become a serious pest, causing damage to crops, stored products and equipment.

Although mice are not a declared animal under Queensland legislation, its control is recommended.
