Mouse abundance is increasing across South Australia, Victoria and southern NSW, and remains low in all other regions. We expect significant damage at sowing in South Australia and parts of Victoria, as predicted in the previous update (Dec 2016). Breeding has continued on trapping sites at Walpeup (Vic) and Mallala (SA). Because of the bumper harvest last year, there is ample food and cover on most sites particularly in cereal stubbles. Growers should look for evidence of mouse activity in their own paddocks. Growers are advised to follow recommendations for monitoring mice and undertake baiting accordingly if appropriate. Please continue to record mouse activity information into MouseAlert.

That is why acting early (and actively recording mouse activity at key times) is very important.
