Mice Removal and Control
So, do I have mice or rats? Either can be disturbing, but most will say that rats are worse.
The main difference between a rat and a mouse is their size. A rat has small ears and large feet with a thick, scaly, hairless tail. In addition, they are gray, brown, white, or black. Rats are typically larger than mice, growing up to 20 inches long and weighing up to 500 kg. They also often leave grease marks on the walls and touched surfaces.
As for mice, they have large, floppy ears and long, thin, hairy tails. In addition, they have triangular snouts with longer whiskers compared to rats. A mouse can grow up to 7 inches and weigh up to 19 kg.
Mice are much more timid, territorial, and social. Unfortunately, this makes them more aggressive, leaving gnaw marks everywhere and transmitting bacteria in your food.
Signs of Mice
Mice love to hide in dark areas, such as cupboards and closets. It’s easy to spot mice due to their tiny black eyes and large ears. They have fine gray, brown, or black fur with a three to four-inch hairless tail.
It’s easy to know if you have mice infestation when there are plenty of rodent droppings in small spaces. Their droppings are small and less than a quarter inch with pointy ends. Mouse urine is also hard to miss due to their strong musky odor.
You may find gnawed holes that are about a size of a dime and oily rub marks along the walls. There may also be nests of string, shredded paper, and other pliable materials. These nests are typically above ground in your attic, trees, and dense vegetation.
If you have pets, they bark, appear alert, and paw at spaces, like beneath your fridge. Note that mice are nocturnal, and they can make plenty of scratching noises inside your walls and along the floors.
