Farmers urged to record current mouse problems.


It only takes 45 seconds to record current mouse problems in MouseAlert to help raise awareness about mouse problems in your local area, to help farmers take steps to protect crops.


Current advice: Mouse numbers are LOW in most areas.

MouseAlert aims at keep people informed about current mouse problems, improve early warnings, predict future plagues, and help farmers to protect their crops.

Update: April 2019 - Mouse numbers are low in all areas, except around Geraldton (WA)
Mouse numbers are currently very low, and are unlikely to increase further as breeding finishes. It is unlikely that economic damage will occur at sowing (except Geraldton area in WA).

There is a low risk of damage of crops at sowing. Mouse numbers and activity will peak soon when breeding finishes.
Advice - Growers should  walk through paddocks and actively monitor mouse activity (mouse chew cards or active burrow counts). There is always a chance of isolated patches of higher mouse activity.
1. Reduce alternative food sources and cover .
2. Bait with zinc phosphide.
3. manage over large areas by coordinating with neighbours.
4. Monitor for signs of mouse activity and report activity into MouseAlert.

When to record mouse activity

Recording mouse activity at key times will improve forecasts that will help early application of control to reduce the impacts of plagues. Information is particularly valuable at 3 key times in the cropping cycle.

Respond early to prevent problems

Mice can cause enormous damage to crops in a very short time period. Most damage occurs during mouse plagues, however by the time a large plague is obvious, it is generally too late to do anything to stop the damage. That is why acting early (and actively recording mouse activity at key times) is very important.
