Rats and Mice in Manhattan NY have been a problem for many years!
Mice are generally much smaller than rats and they are very curious. They will explore anything new so it is easy to catch them with set traps if you place them in their path. Although they will eat almost anything, mice prefer to eat grains and plants. They tend to create their dwellings near where their food supply is. Mice are mostly active at night because they don’t like light but will come out during the day scavenging for food. They cannot see very well so they use their other senses to get around. In order to determine if you have mice in the house, look out for their droppings or poop, scratch marks and tracks.
The most common mice pests in the United States are the house mice. The house mouse has light brown body with some gray shading and dark tail. It has a small head and small feet with a large snout and ears. Their droppings are shaped like rods. They are one of the world’s worst invaders.
Rats on the other hand, are very cautious and careful that take note of everything in their path. In order to catch them, you may want to put traps that aren’t set up to catch them for a couple of days until they get used to them and see that they are harmless. After which, you can then put traps that are set up. This way, you will be more successful in trapping them.
Rats prefer to eat grains and meat; they eat other mice. Rats like to dig and burrow. They will burrow under buildings, fences, plants and garbage. They can enter your buildings or homes through holes that they make or through broken drains and toilets. Like mice, rats cant see well and so they use their other senses to move around. In order to determine if you have mice, look out for their droppings or poop, scratch marks, tracks, burrows and runways.
The most common rat pest in the United States are the Norway rat and the Roof rat. Norway rats have thick, heavy, brown bodies with black shading, short ears with dark hair. Their tails are dark on the top and light underneath. Their poop takes the shape of capsules. Norway rats live mostly in the burrow that they make in the lower floors of buildings.
The roof rat has a light and slender body and large ears with no hair. Their bodies are a gray color with black shading and they have a dark tail. Their poop takes the shape of spindles. Setting traps on the floor for roof rat might not work in terms of trapping them because they mostly live on the roof, walls, attics, and trees.
