The house mouse has a grayish brown upper body and a somewhat lighter underside. They are between 5 and 7 inches long (including tail) and weigh less than 1 oz. These mice like to nibble and though they will only range about 15 feet from their nest in any direction they can make as many as 200 food stops per night. They will claw through walls, floors, baseboards, and even electrical wires -- which may cause a fire. They reproduce exponentially as they average 7 -10 litters of 4 - 6 young per year. Custom baiting systems are available for remediation.
The Norway Rat is brownish gray and can be up to 18 inches long with a tail that is shorter than the head and body combined. They have small eyes and hairy ears and weigh between 7 and 17 oz. These rats live in homes, warehouses, farms, cultivated fields, and sewers. They are agile climbers and excellent swimmers. Rats normally feed at night, but daytime feeding is evidence of a large population. In order to hone their teeth they will gnaw on wood, pipes, electric cables, and other objects. They average 5 - 12 litters of 7 - 11 young annually and should be baited.
The Roof Rat is dark brown with a gray belly. It is smaller than the Norway rat, being only 15 inches long, and has a slender tail that is longer than its head and body. Also, in contrast to the Norway rat, its ears are large and almost hairless. This rat likes to live in the upper floors of buildings, trees and vegetation, seaports, and ships. They are also very agile and need to gnaw on things. They produce several litters of 2 - 8 young per year.
