  • The Norway rat and roof rat are rodents most commonly found in East Tennessee. They 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.
  • Food: Mice eat bugs, grains, seeds, nuts, berries and 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.
  • Signs of an invasion: 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.
  • Be aware: Rats and mice carry dangerous diseases with them. Droppings and urine may contain the Hantavirus or Salmonella.
