Breeding onset is at about 50 days of age in both females and males, although females may have their first estrus at 25–40 days. Mice are polyestrous and breed year round The average gestation period is 20 days. The average litter size is 10–12 during optimum production.
Mice contaminate food with their droppings and urine. They spread such diseases as salmonella bacteria (food poisoning), lepospirae (jaundice) and typhus. As well, they carry parasites such as fleas, round worms and mites. House mice are known to transmit Hantavirus, a virus that affects the respiratory system of humans.
Since ants are attracted to foods such as honey, fruit and meat they can carry disease germs from one area to another. eir ability to exploit resources may bring ants into conflict with humans, however, as they can damage crops and invade buildings.
The majority of wasp species (well over 100,000 species) are "parasitic" (technically known as parasitoids), and the ovipositor is used simply to lay eggs, often directly into the body of the host. The most familiar wasps belong to Aculeata, a "division" of Apocrita, whose ovipositors are adapted into a venomous sting.
