Types of Rats, Mice, & Rodents
Deer Mice
  • The scientific name for this animal is Peromyscus maniculatus.
  • Slightly larger than house mice (slightly longer than a couple of inches)
  • They have a pointy nose, large furry ears, and a bi-colored body as well.
  • Feet and underbelly are typically white, while the rest of them is a reddish-brown hue.
  • Deer mice in Las Vegas usually are outdoors in hollow organic materials like small stones or gravel.
  • They prefer small insects, nuts, and berries to eat, but they will scavenge almost anything
  • At two-months-old, these mice are fully mature and ready to produce a litter.
  • One of the main ways homeowners can tell that they have a deer mouse infestation is finding nests and gnaw marks.
House Mice
  • The common house mouse is also called Mus musculus, as its scientific name.
  • House mice are covered in fur that’s short in length and light brown or gray to black in color, with lighter-colored bellies.
  • Adult house mice weigh approximately one-half ounce to a full ounce and can grow up to a few inches from the nose to the tip of the tail.
  • They like to make their nest in outdoor places, and they will choose a dark, enclosed area.
  • Unlike rats, house mice will roam around during the day looking for nuts and seeds. They typically will build a nest close to a source of water and food.
  • Because these mice do not hibernate, they will choose a warmer place to live (not great news for Las Vegas)
  • Reproduction can move very quickly because most mice are sexually mature when they are six weeks old. Every 21 days, a new pregnancy can be produced with up to six babies per litter.
Norway Rats
  • Commonly known as the Norway rat, their scientific name is Rattus norvegicus.
  • Larger than most rats, they have been known to reach lengths of up to a foot-and-a-half.
  • While the roof rat is smooth in appearance, the Norway rat has shaggy brown or gray fur. The ears and tail are not smooth and covered in scales.
  • Most homeowners can find indicators that they have a Norway rat problem because of the capsule-shaped droppings.
  • Norway rats eat nuts, meats, grains, and fruits.
  • These rats have strict rules about dominance and subordination, homeowners can often hear them fighting with each other.
  • Many homeowners find their feces or see the grease stains and gnaw marks on wood, building structures, or discarded food. The darker the grease stains are, the larger the infestation.
Roof Rats
  • Known by their Latin name Rattus rattus, roof rats can be up to 15 inches long.
  • They have a sleeker body with smoother fur than the Norway rats, and they are not as large.
  • They differ from other types of rats because they have a long, hairless tail that is almost the same size as their body.
  • If they are found indoors, their nests are usually in the loose fiberglass insulation in an attic. If you find them in your home, you can learn how to get rid of roof rats here.
  • They prefer vegetables and fruits, but they will also scavenge meat if it is the only thing available.
  • Most homeowners are aware that there are roof rats in their area because they see dead rodent pests or living ones scurrying about.
  • Since roof rats typically like to stay out of sight, seeing them means that there is an infestation nearby.
Do These Rats & Mice Carry Disease?
  • They do. The most important reason to address mice and rats in your home is the fact that they do spread disease
