Do Relocated Mice Survive?

There are some Orlando mice that are bred so as to be pets and some can even be bought from a pet breeder or a pet store. If this is your case, then you should never ever consider releasing the mouse into the wild. This is because the mouse may die very quicklydue to the lack of the genetic traits that are needed for it to survive in wild settings. Wild mice have some genes that have been developed so as to allow survival in the wild. It is important to note that even with the advantage of the genes, about 5% if the mice will survive the very first year. Usually, the luckiest, healthiest and strongest actually survive in the wild. As we all know this fact that Florida's wild animals can’t be kept as pets, even then many of us have them at our home deliberately or sometimes, unfortunately! This is the reason why, we all need a service to help us in getting rid of these wild animals if we are failed to do so by our own.

When you have had a Florida mouse with you for a while or when it has been living in your household, relocating may not give it the needed advantage over others and it may not be able to survive. This tells you that if you no longer want to keep your Orlando mouse as a pet, you should try outthe humane society as you may be able to locate someone who is willing to keep the animal as their pet.

Wild Mouse
When you catch one of Orlando's wild mouse and you want it relocated, there is more consideration that should be taken so as to make sure that it does survive in the surroundings where you introduce it.

Considerations Include:
• Females: when you catch a Florida mouse, it could be a female with a nest of babies that are nursing. The mothers are aggressive and more agitated and will try to escape more than other mice. If you relocate the mom, it means that the babies will actually die in their nest.

• Time: the Orlando mice need to be relocated very soon after capture. If thisisn’tpossible, don’t handle the animal. They may be able to do better when there is little or no contact with humans. Weather is also a consideration.

• Distance: you should take the mouse as far as 2 or 3 miles so as to make sure it doenst get back to you. Make sure you relocate them in an area without human habitation. Relocated Orlando mice rarely survive. It is important to create some favorable conditions to aid in this area.
