Signs of Mice
Mice or Rats: What Type of Rodent Is Living In Your Home?
The Size of Droppings
Watch and see if you can spot rodents in your home. If you manage to see one, you can figure out whether it is a mouse or a rat by its appearance.
Mice are small creatures with large, round ears and small eyes. They have thin fur and a hairless tail. When mice are matured, they will measure anywhere between 6-7 inches long.
In contrast, rats are much larger than mice and usually have coarse red, grey or brown fur. Their tail is also hairless, but much longer than a mouse’s. Mature rats will measure about 11-19 inches long.
