Yes you should worry as they breed very fast from one mouse you will go up to 2 figure amounts very quickly. You end up with nests everywhere and mouse poo everywhere, and I do MEAN EVERYWHERE. The best way in my opinion is by a trap and the one I like is a plastic one that is a bit like a bulldog clip--you click it open put some peanut butter on the tongue of the trap and then set it down against the wall as mice like to run along the wall and do not like to run across in the open unless they have to. These traps are re-usable and they do not trigger while you set them like the old fashion ones did also the mouse gets killed but you do not end up with body fluid on the surrounding areas. The traps are about 4.50 for a set of 2. You can get a trap that does not kill the mouse, but traps it in the container. Which you can then take somewhere else and set free but which neighbour would appreciate that. And as to what harm they can do well the poo gets in everywhere and that could be on your clothes or in food areas on your sheets etc. In other words they get into everything. I hope this helps you.

It depends on your particular model of mouse, but it most likely has one or more small screws on the bottom. You may need to remove the feet of the mouse to access them

How do I care for an orphaned baby mouse?
I know mice need there food (buy at the local pet store) pellets, and you need a water bottle for mice. Right now, you can use a small dish filled with a tiny bit of water so it wo not drown. If you do not have a cage or mouse bedding, you will need a box, plastic toy box will do about on ft in lenth, high enough so the mouse wo not climb out. line the bow with a old clean towel (just long enough to cover the bottom of the box). And for food(for now) you can use quakers oat meal in a small bowl or dish about 1 cm high. As soon as you can, bring the mouse to the local vet or even a pet store. Since the mouse is so young, it might die. Look for it's mother around your house. Chris h, that's really mean! How dare you. Lets see a elephant step on you cause you are just some puny little pest. How would you feel now?
humane way to catch a house mouse?
You can trap mice alive and release them elsewhere. Or traps that kills the mice instantly it's your choice. The traps must be kept were the children can not get at them. I do not think a glue trap is that good, the mouse has to wait for someone to kill it
What is wrong with my mouse?
Clean the mouse. Crud builds up on the optical sensor lens. You should be able to use a slightly damp Q-tip. Remove the ball (all are removable) and clean away.
usb mouse stopped working?
1. identify problem 2. fix it. what type of mice? ball, optical, wired or wireless? (model would be nice) ball mice are practically gone. they had tendency to collect dirt so ball would not spin. to fix it one would have to remove the ball and clean the wheels, then put ball back. another common problem with wired mice is cable - it gets damaged, specially near mouse (where the cable enters mouse) because of frequent bending. another weak point is USB connector. problem here can be mouse cable or usb port (maybe became lose or broken). to check if the pc usb port is busted, try plugging into another port (or another computer). if the mouse os working fine, you got broken usb port. if the problem occurs even if mice is used on other ports (or another computer), check cable. gently wiggle ends near rigid parts (connector or mouse) and see if you can make it fail. if you can reproduce the problem - it is the cable. optical/laser mice are more robust. major problem for these guys is the sliding pads which get worn out. once they are thinned down, optics is simply out of focus. if you see that this is the case, you can simply add some tape on the underside of the mouse to raise it up a bit. wireless - weak battery, reception problem, drivers issues. or finally, maybe it is gone and you really need new one
