How to Tell if You Have Mice or Rats

If you think there are rodents inside or outside of your property, identifying the type of rodent is always the first step in solving the problem. Even though Mice and Rats share commonalities, you can use their unique indicators to find out what kind of rodents are present.

Appearance

Rat In Kitchen

Rats are larger than mice and will have coarse brown, grey, or black fur and a long, scaly, fur-less tail. A mature rat can range from 11-19 inches long (including its tail) and weigh ½ to 1 pound.

Mice have large ears and tiny black eyes. They have fine fur that can be black, grey, or brown and a 3-4 inch long, hairless tail. Mature mice grow to about 6-7 inches long (including its tail) and weigh ½ to 1oz.

Droppings

Rodent droppings are a sure sign that rats or mice are present, and will indicate the type of rodent, the size of the infestation, and where they are most active.

Mouse Droppings

Mouse droppings are small, less than ¼ inch, and pointed on both ends.

Rat Droppings

Rat droppings are ½ inch or larger. Norway Rat droppings are blunt at both ends.

New droppings are shiny and putty-like in texture, while old ones are hard and often lighter in color. Varying feces sizes indicate that juveniles and adults are present, and lots of droppings may be an indication of a large infestation.

Gnawing

Mouse Chewing Wire

Gnawed mouse holes are small, clear-cut, and about the size of a dime. Gnaw marks on wood around the house also are a sign. Tooth marks about ⅛ inch long are typical of rats and small scratch marks are a sign of mice.

Wire Gnawed by Rat

Gnawed rat holes are large, about the size of a quarter, with rough torn edges.

Rub Marks

Rat Rub Marks

Greasy rub marks are left in places where rodents travel along walls. This greasy substance is called Sebum. If rub marks smear, you know they are fresh.

Runways

Common rodent pathways are generally along interior walls, building foundations, ledges, pipes, electrical wires, conduits, tree branches and fence rails. If you look closely, you will be able to see the ground wear away from where they readily travel.

Nests

Mouse Nest In Air Filter

Mice will shred paper, cardboard & string, and other pliable materials to build their nests indoors.

Rat Burrows

Norway rats nest outdoors in burrows deep in the ground.

Pet Behavior

Unusual Pet Behavior

Pets tend to act unusual when they hear or smell Mice & Rats in the house. They may appear extremely alert, bark, or begin to scratch at spaces beneath refrigerators, stoves, or pieces of furniture.
