There are 4,000 identified species of rodents. While these species vary greatly to include everything from chipmunks to groundhogs, the species that most commonly come to mind at the mention of rodents include mice and rats. This isn’t really surprising as these two species of rodent are a problem for many home and business owners around the world. So how do you know if you’re having a mouse problem or a rat problem? A few indicators from their physical appearance should help you tell the difference. While mice generally measure 12 to 20 cm in length, rats are larger and can grow to 40cm or more in length. Rats are also commonly hairless and scaly while mice have a full coat of fur. Both mice and rats can be found in varying climates and structures and can reproduce fairly quickly to create a full infestation.
