Details of this species in Saint-Paul Is. (sub-Antarctic)
Source: Micol and Jouventin, 2002.
Introduction: Unintentional (accidentally)
Species Notes for this Location:
House mice (Mus musculus) were introduced to Saint-Paul Island by sealers.
Management Notes for this Location:
House mice numbers were significantly reduced during an aerial drop of brodifacoum bait in an attempt to eradicate rats and rabbits in January 1997. However they reappeared in late March of 1997. They have since recolonised the island and are more numerous than prior to 1997, presumably because of the absence of rats.
