What Are Rodents
A rodent is a term used to describe rats and mice. There are many rat species, but some are more common. The most common rat species in our area are Norway rats and roof rats. As with other rodents, they’re commensal. As a result, they’re going to live with humans so they can survive and thrive. Commensal rodents benefit greatly from living with humans. Norway rats are larger than roof rats. They typically range in size from 7 to 9 inches and have a tail up to 8 inches in length.
Their blunt-ended droppings are usually three-quarters of an inch. If you’re living with Norway rats, you’ll find rodent droppings, burrows, and chew marks in your home. You’ll also have to watch out for roof rats. The difference between the two is that roof rats prefer living above your bedroom and kitchen. They grow up to eight inches in length and have smooth, brown hair. Their tails can grow up to 10 inches. As for their droppings, they’re generally half an inch.
