The Roof Rat, commonly referred to as black rats or ship rats derive their name from its tendency to find shelter in areas like attics, trees, fences, and another lodging off of the ground. They are the smallest of the two major rat species of the world. The Norway Rat generally called the brown rat, is larger in size. Rats tend to become a bigger problem during the winter, but regardless of the season, they can be a source of irritation and a serious health hazard.
House mice can enter dime-sized cracks to gain access into your home or building. Because of this, mice are potentially the most troublesome and costly rodents in the United States. They seek areas of clutter (such as attics or basements) because they provide excellent hiding places to build nests. House mice are attentive and especially cautious, making them toilsome to eradicate. Their droppings can contaminate food. The disease can be transmitted if the population is not controlled. Because house mice are so small, they are able to enter homes and buildings at much more ease than rats. As a result, mice infestations are more frequent than rat infestations.
