In large enough quantity, yes. However, boric acid is considered to be about as poisonous as table salt. Certainly it would kill mice if you immersed them in it, or fed it to them in large enough quantities. Mice traps or rat poison will work better though.
If your rabbit is biting and shaking her cage bars, that means she is bored and wants out. Rabbits need time outside their cage to exercise, play, and socialize, and so you can observe their health and behaviour -- they need at least three outside their cage hours every day. Rabbits also need things inside their cage so they can play and express their natural behaviours (like grazing): things like toys, play structures, hay, etc. See the related question below for more info about what rabbits needs in their habitat. If you don't give your rabbit anything to do with her time, she'll just get bored, and possibly destructive, depressed, or even sick! The less time you give your rabbit outside her cage, the bigger and more awesome her cage needs to be.
It will get sick and die. Use ESBILAC, you'll find it in a drugstore.

Usually people buy cheap scented perfumes or a strong smell to cover it up, but if you want to get rid of it, unbelievably, you can use milk!
Plain milk, bought from your local grocery shop, can fight away the strong smell of rotting mice. The area of the smell can be cured by lightly pouring pure milk onto the carpet or floor near the smell.
The milk will not stain but will be absorbed through the air and the rotting mice corps will attract the milk and evaporate. At the same time as stopping the smell, it will also increase the rotting process and the corpse will disappear quicker.
This will not harm humans or animals and no cleaning up necessary, after just 15 minutes of pouring the milk on the floor, it will disappear and be gone, no stains or smell remaining!
Mice are prey species and are therefore easily stressed. Studies suggest that loud high frequency noises can increase production of stress hormones in mice resulting in impaired health and decreased litter sizes.
Source: I saw a mouse scurrying around my floor and decided to find out. I waited for it to crawl into an empty paper bag and then let out a loud scream, I've never seen anything disappear that fast.
depends on the mouse care, if its a nested baby mouse with the mother allowing it to nurse,it is not likely you will be able to tell,also interfering with the mother may result in adbandonment of the mouse, if it is a very young baby mouse(pinky), under 14 days of age and you are personally nursing it it is recommended you wet a Q-Tip and rub the belly slowly spinning the Q-Tip as you rub, this stimulates use of the lower extremities, which you often need to do after feeding and will result in a yellowing of the Q-Tip, this stimulation often occurs as the mother mouse licks the baby and is typical after feeding.

In his best nest, usually lined with torn shreds of paper or bark or preferrably, cat fur.
They're very active little guys and they're always looking for someway to run and climb and wheels serve both these purposes, so they're all together great toys for a mouse.
No, in fact it is a great thing to put in their cage because they like to tear it and spread it around. I put some in the cage for my mice, and they love it!
The pups will start to nurse from their mother right away. There are instances when the mother might reject her pups. Although this is unlikely you should always take these precautions when breeding.
1. Put your mom to be in a separate tank or away from other mice
2. Supply her with plenty of bedding to buid a nest and a hide away
3. Always provide water and proper food to her at all times
4. Never introduce a mouse into her territory after she has given birth
5. Don't mess with her litter until three days after the birth
the rat is a sign off gud luck to the japanise
Well they should just have there mother for warmth and she should have made a nest for them.
If they don't have a mother and they are in a cage, just put some wood shavings in a pile, place the baby's on them and you can get a reptile light to keep them warm. If you don't know what a reptile light is, just look it up! :D
If they have a mother and you think they look cold, you can just buy some wood shavings from the pet store and place them near the mother and baby's, and she should come and collect them to make a nest.
Put plenty wood shavings there because mice can be picky. :)
Rats basically eat anything, but rat food, hamster food, gerbil food, etc. is the best for them. They do also like fruit and nuts too.
Separate all of the males so that they're in different cages. The females shouldn't really be a problem. Feed them and give them water more often or change their diet. Keep them entertained with a wheel and toys.
You should feed your pet mouse regular "Pet Mouse & Rat Food" at your local retailer store that carries pet food.But,there is also different things you can feed your pet mouse.You can feed them dog food (soft or hard),& even different kinds of berries.Their favorite treat is cheese,and,their most favorite,peanut butter.They may also eat paper or cotton.The most emportant thing to feed your pet mouse is garlic,which can destroy cancer cells,red grapes,which are an excellent source of flavanoids,which are proven to increase the levels of important enzymes.Also,Curly Kale,which is a good source of vitamins A,C,& calcium & posphorus.~Hope this advice works~ ~P.S.~It would be better for your pet mouse to eat hard food to where down their teeth,so they won't have long or sharp overgrowth.

Common and Benign Sneezing
It's not uncommon for many rats to sneeze regularly while they explore their environment. They will most likely sneeze frequently when sniffing around new or strong smells, and this can continue throughout their life (most likely slowing as they become accustomed to their environment). For this reason it is important to make sure that you do not use strong chemicals or strong smelling cleaners around their cage, as these can upset their delicate respiratory systems.
Common Health Issues in Domestic Rats
The time to worry is when a rat exhibits heavy breathing for no reason, or their sneezing/breathing is wet and rattling. If your rat seems to be having trouble breathing, or his/her breathing is wet or ragged, it could be an upper respiratory tract infection. If they have a reddish looking fluid coming from their nose (and crusting there or all over their cage and your nearby furniture) it could be invasive mycoplasmosis
which is very serious and can be deadly. The flip side is that a reddish/pinkish mucus is also a common occurrence for new rats due to the stress of a new owner and environment. If the fluid persists for more than a week keep a close eye on the rat in question, and if it reaches two weeks make a vet appointment immediately.
Thoughts to Keep in Mind When Looking at New Rats
When picking out rats it is a good idea to look for a reputable local breeder if possible as they will most likely have fewer animals to attend to than a chain store and will most likely have noticed any health issues. In addition local breeders will have had more time to socialize young rats, which is most successful at a younger age and can make for a calmer and more playful pet. When evaluating rats for sale look for the reddish fluid that might indicate mycoplasmosis
and/or labored breathing, as these are very common health issues in rats. Look for rats that are active and unafraid to approach people. Keep in mind that Females will be more active and more likely to chew, while males will be lazier as they age, have softer coats, and establish a more rigid pecking order. Make sure to keep rats in same sex groupings as they get lonely and can mate in less than the few seconds it takes to catch and separate them.
Depends how many mice you're feeding & what you use.
Home made mixes can cost as little as $10 & up to $100 per month. I make 15kg-20kg of home made mix, costs me about $20 & lasts me 3 months.
Store bought stuff is utter junk & expensive, up to amounts of $20 for 1kg that may last you a few weeks, & probably make your mouse sick too.
Well if it has a yellowish color to it, that could be an abscess, watch it to see if it pops, if it does, make sure to clean the wound out with disinfectant and it should be fine. If your mouse has more of a kink in its tail, that could be genetic.
If it doesn't look like any of these you might want to take it to the vet, mice have been known to get tumors and cancer on there tails.
I will assue you mean the trenches of a battlefield. In those trenches the rats bit people, spread disease and feasted on the corpses of the dead.
They can give you;
And Lyme Disease
But bare in mind, they can only give you these if they bite/scratch you, or get near you food. So if you keep away you shouldn't get any of those.
