Pest Guide: Rodents

   

Deer Mice

(Peromyscus maniculatus)

The deer mouse rarely invades homes, and is found in rural areas.

House Mice

(Mus domesticus)

The house mouse is the most common rodent pest in most parts of the world. It can breed rapidly and adapt quickly to changing conditions.

Norway Rats

(Rattus norvegicus)

These rats have smaller eyes and ears and shorter tails.

Roof Rats

(Rattus rattus)

Roof rats get their name from their tendency to be found in the upper parts of buildings. Ranging in size from 6 to 8 inches in length, not including their tails, they have very poor vision and are color blind. They do have extremely strong senses of hearing, smell, touch and taste.
