How Common Are Mice In London?

Since 2012, mice in London have become increasingly common. As they become more of a pest, more people across the capital are having problems with them.

From homeowners to hoteliers to landlords, many of us have had experience of tackling mice in London.

In fact, the London mouse problem may have hit crisis point, according to some experts. The usual mice removal treatments like baits and traps haven’t been as effective either.

The worsening problem of mice in London has been well documented in the news. All cities have a problem with pest control, and London is no different. London mice are becoming so common that they are a real challenge to deal with.

What’s Causing More Mice In London?

There are a few reasons why mice in London are becoming more common. A big part of the issue is that the old and conventional methods of mice control are becoming less effective. The population of rodents is rising. And because the mice are becoming immune to rodenticides and poisons, they are more prolific than you’d think.

Mice In The News

Multiple times recently, the mice boon has been reported in the UK press. Social class is no barrier to mouse problems.

One businessman snapped a photo of a mouse under the bed in a top luxury London hotel, then posted it on social media. Mice in London are even affecting Parliament. In 2017 there was a 24% increase of mice sightings in the Houses of Parliament. During the worst period, pest technicians set up 1700 mouse traps across the property.

Cold Weather Brings Them Inside

As mice become more common in London, it will be harder to keep them out of your home this winter. As the colder season creeps up on us, mice will want to come into our homes and business premises to get away from the low temperatures and harsh weather. For this reason, mice could end up anywhere in your home.

House mice will nest in your walls, in your loft and underneath your floors. Wherever It’s warm and safe, they will make their nest. This include under your fridge or cooker. Or even in the airing cupboard.
