Mice and Mouse Plagues

On average, there has been a mouse (Mus domesticus) plague every 7 years in South Australia. However, mouse numbers have remained elevated since the most recent major plague in 1993, probably because of changes in farming practices. It is because of their ability to cause intermittent heavy losses to agriculture and impact on the community that policies regarding control of mice are being developed, based on research undertaken by the Control Strategies Group and other organisations.
