Rodent Control Middlesex County

There are a variety ways to control rodents. But you first need to know the difference between how they look, their behavior, as well as how often they breed and what they like to eat. Mice are smaller in size. They have small hands and feet and they have large hairy ears. Alternatively rats are large and longer than mice. Their fur is not as smooth as mice. Rats have hairless tails and they are not as curious as mice.
Both are strong swimmers and climbers. Their eating habits are also different. Although mice will eat anything, they prefer food like fruit, grains and seeds. Rats will eat meat and grains. But both rodents will eat fecal matter of your pets as they are foraging for bits of food in the excrement.
Both rodents can live outdoor but make their way indoors when it’s cold. A female mouse breeds as many as 50 mice per year. And a female rat breeds up to 12 rats per year. While both rodents live up to a year, rats can outlive mice by up to six months. Rats also eat mice.
The odor from rats can deter mice and make them relocate. Though rats and mice are different in size and behavior, they both carry diseases that will make you, your family and your pets sick. Making sure your home is clean will not get rid of mice but keeping an unclean house definitely attracts them.
