What do mouse eat ?

Remembering children’s cartoons, many are sure that most of all in the world all mouse like cheese. This is not quite true, but in the wild the diet of their food is quite different than in captivity. In their nest really discover such crops as wheat, rye, oats, corn, corn, barley, oats, sorghum, millet, fruits of various plants. Small mouse eat them in large quantities, causing irreparable damage to agriculture.

As they multiply rapidly (each female gives offspring 4 times a year), the fight against rodents is rather complicated. Poles, steppe and meadow inhabitants with pleasure eat seeds of deciduous trees, nuts, mushrooms, tops. If the stocks made in the autumn and spring are not enough for the whole winter, mouse find roots of plants, nuts, mushrooms and so on underground. In winter, without hibernating and being panic-stricken from lack of food, the mouse often eats even beetles, spiders, worms.
