A North Burnett agriculture supplier says demand for mice bait has skyrocketed, following reports of a mouse plague in the region.
Regional towns in the North and South Burnett have been impacted, with some householders catching up to 40 mice per night in their houses.
One landholder in Gayndah reportedly caught more than 1000 mice in water traps in just three days.

Steve Grant of Burnett Ag Supplies in Gayndah said his store had sold around four pallets of mice bait in recent weeks.
"It doesn't seem to be easing up at all at this stage and the only thing that's going to slow the mice population boom is they have to run out of food," Mr Grant said.
"I haven't looked at the figures to see how much bait that we've sold but the supply and demand is obviously there.
"The mice outbreak started about a month ago and at this stage it's mostly the township of Gayndah and people on rural properties that seem to be having the biggest problem.
"There's a few late sorghum crops in the district and obviously there'll be of mice there as well."
Mr Grant said a good seasonal conditions and food availability was to blame.
"We've had just a good season pasture wise, and that's where the mouse populations bred up," he said.
"They've been bred up to I suppose plague proportions and the population has grown and they've got to move out and find more feed.
"Now, we seem to be selling a lot of live traps and that seems to be the biggest in demand. There's no problem then with secondary poisoning, and you can catch big numbers in the night."
