How mice winter




main protection against winter stooge for field mice is, oddly enough, snow. Like a blanket, it captures the earth, deep in which you can hide from the wind and cold. Preparing for the freezes, mice dig up the main moves and multi-storey minks. Under tree roots, and in places where snowdrifts in winter are largest, they dig burrows up to 50-60 cm deep and arrange round nests, oral with dry grass stalks.


Water rats — the largest variety — live in river floodplains and on the shores of reservoirs. In winter they move to parks, forest strips, vegetable gardens or gardens. There they swarm shallow forage burrows, where they survive the winter.


Forest mice, unlike field ones, get over closer to winter closer to the person and occupy the cellars of residential buildings. However, they also push supplies of nuts, seeds and other snow into temporary shelters. House mice also spend winters in barns, skirds, cellars, cellars, attics, etc.


Sandstones with the onset of autumn become active 24 hours a day. They harvest stocks for winter up to 500 g. They winter in multi-chambered minks, the depth of which can reach two meters. They usually huddle between five and fifteen individuals.


For shrews, winter is a tough period because they do not feed on plant food and produce for them nothing. Therefore, with the onset of cold, they move closer to humans. Agile and nimble, the shrew extracts wintering insects from under the snow and even attacks the polewok, despite the fact that those are larger than it.


Practical all mice harvest stocks for winter: nuts, acorns, $ High-calorie cereal seeds, etc. Certain species of mouse, primarily those that live in the Far North, fall into hibernation in winter. It happens that some mice (the aforementioned paddles, shrews) climb to the tops of Christmas trees and bury themselves in snow-covered heaths.
