Many of Alabama's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Alabama's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Jefferson county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Vestavia Hills animal control for wildlife issues.

Vestavia Hills Wildlife Removal Tip: What is a house mouse's mating habits?

Female house mice can begin reproducing as early as 6 weeks of age. Their estrous cycle (window of fertility) lasts four to six days. It has been noted that females confined in crowded conditions will usually not have an estrus until exposed to male urine.

The females are wooed by males emitting ultrasonic calls to let them know he is looking. The Males are enticed by the female pheromones and the results are their mating call. Each male has his own sound, and it is designed to excite the female into breeding. After copulation, female mice develop a plug that prevents any other male from breeding with her. This is designed to prevent an automatic abortion triggered by copulation. This "copulation plug" stays in place approximately 24 hours after sex. After an approximate 20 days of gestation the female has a live birth of a litter of 314 babies (average number is about 7). Although she will nurse the pups for three to four weeks, at three weeks she can breed again. A female house mouse can bear up to 10 litters per year, making the mouse population surge quickly. Mouse can breed year around, and if they are living in your comfy home, they will!

Mice usually practice polygamy, usually with one male having multiple females. Males are usually extremely protective of their mates, while females are indifferent. Because several females can have offspring from the same male at the same time, they often practice communal nursing. This assures that all young eat well, and always have protection around them.

The polygamous nature of the house mice promotes sperm competition, and encourages survival of the fittest. Males who dominate females are stronger, more fit, and in better health. They also tend to have a higher sperm count, and the sperm is more active. Females who charge mates each estrus and breed with multiple dominant males produce larger litters with a higher survival rate. It also cuts down on instances of dangerous inbreeding. Because of this phenomenon, many females choose to breed with different males each estrus. Another benefit to multiple male partners is that males are uncertain of the pups' lineage, and so less likely to kill any males in the litter.

So just keep in mind that although a house mouse only has a lifespan of about 18 months, it can begin reproducing a 6 week, its gestation is on 21 days, and it will have up to 14 pups each litter, and can have 15- 18 litters in its lifetime.

That means just one mouse in your house could have 100+pups in one year. Multiply that by 10 mice, or even 100. Now that is scary!
