Mice and Rats
Rodents, like mice and rats, are common in North Carolina, including in Winston-Salem, Greensboro, High Point, Burlington, Kernersville and the greater Triad. There are Norway rats, house mice, field mice and some other similar species in the area.
Size is the main distinction between mice and rat species. Both have long tails, whiskers, and brown or grey fur. They are known as prolific breeders, with multiple, large litters possible per year.
Problems Caused by Mice and Rats
These rodents can be a homeowner’s worst nightmare. Because they have been living amongst humans for so many centuries, mice and rats have adapted ways of staying out of site. Field mice will tend to stay outside, but Norway rats and house mice are known for living in attics, crawl spaces and in between walls.
While inside your home, these rodents chew wires, disturb insulation and otherwise disturb construction. They are also notorious carriers of disease. Having mice and rats near food, children, pets, and bathrooms are especially risky.
