The house mouse, the second most widespread mammal on the planet after the human being. Although several species of mice inhabit the domestic environment, both as humans, as pets and laboratory animals, others are from rural habitats. Since they are capable of consuming human crops or food reserves, numerous means have been developed since ancient times to combat their presence, including the domestication of predators such as cats, ferrets, jinets and various mongooses. An excessive proliferation of Mouse population can mean a plague. This situation, for example in the fields, leads to the devastation of crops. The mice that inhabit these areas can gnaw the bark of trees and shrubs, destroy stored fruits, and devour young stems or shrubs. Like rats, mouse pests can be especially harmful to both human crops and the environment, if they are released somewhere where they lack predators.
