Vertabrate Pests
House Mouse The House Mouse is one of the more common pests you are likely to encounter. These little nibblers love to sample many foods and will usually eat a small amount of something before moving on to something else. The House Mouse is a small rodent, and can fit through openings the size of a dime or more! These rodents stay within a fairly small range and generally forage between 30’-50’ from their nest. Deer Mouse The Deer Mouse is not as common as the House Mouse, especially if you live in the city. As the name would suggest, the Deer Mouse has a coat similar in color and appearence to deer, but they do lack antlers. The Deer Mouse generally infests in rural areas but can be found anywhere House Mice are. The Deer Mouse is the only known vector of Hantavirus, but care should be taken regardless of the type of rodent encounterd. Norway Rat The Norway Rat is the most common rat species found. This rat can be found anywhere, but activity tends to occur in and around port cities like Tacoma, Seattle, and Olympia. This rat has a larger territory and will often travel 100’ or more while foraging for food. Rats can fit into any opening the size of at least a quarter, and they are masters of their environment. Don’t say a rat can’t do something, chances are there is a rat proving you wrong right this moment. Roof Rat The Roof Rat is similar to all other rats, but tends to share just as many similarities with squirrels. These rats can spend their entire life living in trees and never touching the ground. Their preference for being in elevated spaces, and eating foods different than other rodents make this rat a little too challenging for most DIYers. These rats are not very common, but their populations are growing rapidly and can be found in almost all of the same areas as the Norway Rat.
