House mouse predation on cockroaches

House mouse predation on cockroaches

Journal of Mammalogy 62(4): 853-854

In a study undertaken to ascertain whether house mice (Mus musculus) will kill and eat Blattella germanica (L.) under experimental conditions in the USA, 2 testing procedures were used. In the 1st, a mouse was kept apart from 5 cockroaches in a Plexiglas tube 30 X 10.5 X 6 cm by a Plexiglas door that was slowly withdrawn to expose the cockroaches; each trial lasted for 15 min. In the 2nd, 5 cockroaches were placed in a 76-litre aquarium.
