Mice

The most common mouse to invade the home is the house mouse. This 3-4 in. rodent can be light gray to light brown and anything in between. The tail is usually as long as its body, it has large ear,s and a pointy nose. These features can help distinguish a mouse from a immature rat, which has small ears and a blunt nose.

Other species of mice will occasionally come into your home searching for food, water, or a safe place to stay. Most outdoor mice can be discouraged from staying, but it is important to know your enemy. House mice are very prolific - one pair can produce 2000 mice in one year.

Of all mammals in the world, almost half are rodents. The list is long: rats, mice, gophers, moles, beavers, squirrels, porcupines, voles, groundhogs, marmots, prairie dogs, lemmings and chipmunks. They can be found in nearly every climate, from arctic to tropic and mountain to desert.
