Farmers work together to predict mouse plagues.

 

Current advice: Keep an eye out for mice during crop sowing and growing season.

 
Grain growers are being encouraged to keep a close eye on mouse activity over the coming crop growing season and regularly record their observations via MouseAlert.
MouseAlert aims at improving early warning of possible plagues to enable a rapid response to increases in mouse activity.
MouseAlert can be used to map where mice are and where they aren’t, so participants can play a vital role in developing a better picture of mice distribution and numbers.
MouseAlert can be used as often as you want – for recording mouse activity, or viewing what is happening in your local area.
 
Please take 3 minutes to complete a MouseAlert report. Your data will help to identify the risk of mouse plagues in your region in future growing seasons.

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.

Update: Low mouse activity in most areas except Yorke Peninsula (SA) and southern Qld

Mouse numbers are generally low in all monitoring locations, except moderate/high activity in South Australia (on Yorke Peninsula) and reports of activity in southern Queensland. Mice are still breeding and abundance will peak around sowing. Growers need to monitor mouse activity before sowing and manage mice to protect crops.

Record mouse activity in your local area now

If you see evidence of mouse activity (e.g. mice on the road at night) please record this in MouseAlert. This will alert other farmers about potential mouse problems, and help to forecast the likelihood of a plague in your district.

Bring your farming group online

 
MouseAlert can be used by landholder groups to inform members of current trends in mouse activity and damage. By joining a group, you can (1) keep members up-to-date about current issues, (2) alert members to changes in mouse activity, and (3) work together to control mice before their numbers rise.

Respond early to prevent mouse 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.
