Recognizing the Signs of Rat or Mouse Infestation
There are several signs that signify that rats or mice may be in a building. Some of the most common include:
- Signs of nesting materials, like shredded fabric or paper
- Chew and bite marks on food packaging
- Holes chewed into the home, either through floors or walls, that lead inside from outside
- Stale scents that appear to come from hidden regions of the home
- Rodent droppings

Understanding the Differences Between Rats & Mice
Rats and mice are both rodents, but there are subtle differences between them that may affect how they’re treated during and after an infestation.
A mouse is around 2 to 4 inches long, while a rat is usually around 7 to 9 inches long. Juvenile rats may appear to be the same size as an adult mouse, but adult rats are much larger than adult mice.
Mice have pointy snouts, whereas rats tend to have blunter snouts. Mice also have long, thin and hairy tails, while rats don’t have any hair on their tails. Rat tails also appear to be a little bit scaly, and the animals leave grease marks where they’ve walked.
Both are nocturnal animals, so they’re unlikely to be active during the day. In terms of color, they may all be white, brown or gray, but rats may also be black.
