What Should I Know About Rodents in my House?

The house mouse and deer mouse are common types of mice in the Knoxville area. The mice are small and are able fit their bodies through holes as small as a dime. The Norway rat and roof rat are larger than mice and can be up to 8″ long. They can cause damage to your home if they make it inside, and they carry diseases.

Mice are known to eat:

  • Bugs
  • Grains
  • Seeds
  • Nuts
  • Berries
  • Any other food they can find and hoard

Rats hoard food as well and can gnaw through almost any material to get to food, including plastic or lead pipes. Mice and rats often leave behind droppings. The Norway rat will leave marks and greasy streaks on the walls or baseboards where they follow the same paths over and over. Roof rats may leave gnaw marks, tracks or greasy trails on vertical surfaces.
