Is it a mouse?

AntechinusAs soon as a mouse like creature appears in a home it seems to demand action, usually baiting or trapping.

If you live a  rural area near bushland you would be advised to have a closer look at the animal first and this may mean trapping it in a container that allows observation.

Some “mice” are actually the native antechinus and should not be killed. You may find that is it quite interesting to share you home with this small animal. The latest Backyard Buddies newsletter has an interesting article and link about the carnivorous antechinus.
