The Difference Between Rats and Mice
It's important to know the difference between rats and mice. Treatment methods differ for each and accurate identification will increase our chances of a quick extermination.
Droppings: Mice droppings are a bit smaller than a grain of rice, rice-shaped, black and pointed on both ends. Rat droppings are longer, much bigger and blunt on both edges.
If you're seeing lots of small droppings, you're probably dealing with mice. Rat droppings are less plentiful.
Size: Rats are much bigger than mice. On average, a full grown mouse weighs less than an ounce. Adult male rats can weigh up to a pound.
Color: Mice are usually light brown to light gray while rats are tend towards dark browns and even blacks.
Tail: A rat's tail is nearly as long as his body. It's also thicker and more scaly than a mouse's tail.
Nesting: Mice like to make their nests close to reliable food sources. Their nests are commonly found in walls or under the sink. Mice also like to be cozy and will use any soft, fibrous material to build their beds, including paper, strips of old clothing and old cardboard boxes. A favorite nesting spot is in your home’s insulation.
Rats prefer to burrow into the ground or underneath clutter. Their nests can be found much further from food sources and
Places with a lot of clutter make a good home for mice or rats. Those places in your home are always a first place to look.

6 Signs You Have Mice
Sightings - If you see something tiny and fury scurrying around your kitchen, you may have mice.
Droppings - Mouse droppings are the size of a grain of rice, black in color and pointed on both ends. Mice product about 70 droppings per day. So if you see droppings, mice are most likely nearby. Areas of many droppings indicate rest areas and should be treated more heavily.
Sounds - When it's dark and quiet at night, mice can often be heard gnawing and scratching within the walls, running across the ceiling and possibly squeaking.
Gnawing Damage - Food packages that look as though they've been chewed on or have holes in them could be signs of mice activity. Be sure to throw any damaged food or food packages away.
Pet Excitement - Dogs and cats may alert you to a mice infestation much before you see any other signs. If your dog is barking at the baseboards in your kitchen, you may have mice.
