Myths About Rodents

Rodent Identification

For effective rodent control it is important to determine if you have a mouse or rat infestation. This is helpful because some rat control and mouse control products, such as rodent bait stations and rodent traps come in two different sizes: larger ones for rats and smaller ones for mouse control. Other products such as rodent poison will work for both rats and mice.

Norway Rat

Size:
May grow 13-18 inches in length and weigh 10-16 ounces.

Be careful not to mistake a young rat for a mouse. Norway rats typically nest in burrows. With their powerful front teeth they can gnaw through wood, electrical cables, pipes and other objects. They have a short tail, small ears, and a much fatter and rounder body. These rats are more prevalent in rural and urban areas. They are found in homes less often because of their larger size.

Roof rats will generally enter your home or business through trees or power lines. They nest in attics, wall voids or trees. Roof Rats prefer fruit but will eat almost anything. These rats may travel up to 50 feet from their nest to find food and water. Roof Rats predominantly live along the west coast and southeastern United States.
