Deer Mice

This mouse, commonly called the "Deer Mouse" or "White-Footed Mouse" in Wisconsin, is sometimes called long-tail field mouse or prairie white-footed mouse. Other names include Baird's deer mouse, Baird's white-footed mouse, Michigan deer mouse, Michigan prairie mouse, Michigan white-footed mouse, Michigan wood mouse, and prairie mouse.

Measuring from notch to tip an adult deer mouse is usually less than 160 mm. in total length. The shorter tail is only 40% of the total body length (usually less than 65 mm.).

Little information is known of reproduction in Wisconsin. The mice commence breeding in March or April, and continue breeding into September. Litters are 3-5 pups.

House Mouse

House mice infestations can happen quickly! House mice are only pregnant for about 20 days, and after giving birth can become pregnant again within just 12 hours! If a female doesn't get pregnant again within the first 24 hours, she will be able to get pregnant again every 4-5 days onwards. In a single litter a house mouse can have anywhere from 4-12+ pups.

The house mouse measures 6.3 to 7.9 inches and the tail measures 3.0 to 3.7 inches. The house mouse can be found in and around houses, stores, warehouses, granaries, barns and other buildings; frequently in fields and meadows during summer months; and rarely in marshes.

Norway Rat

The Norway rat (aka: the brown rat or sewer rat) is a destructive pest found in urban and suburban neighborhoods.

Medical Alert - May spread diseases that affect people and pets These rodents eat and contaminate food, damage buildings and other property by their gnawing and burrowing, and may spread diseases that affect people and pets.

These rats are husky, brownish rodents that weigh about 11 ounces. About 13" long, including the 6 to 8" tail. Their fur is course and mostly brown with scattered black on the upper surfaces.

Norway rats will climb to find food or shelter, and they can gain entrance to a building through any opening larger than " across. They have litters of 6-12 young, born 21-23 days after mating, and they reach maturity in about 3 months. Breeding is most active in spring and fall, and the female has 4-6 litters per year.

Roof Rat

As the seasons change from summer to fall, roof rats are on the move--to indoors in search of their preferred nesting places, in the warmer upper level of homes and garages.

Roof rats like to gnaw the wires and hoses under car hoods, boats and motorhomes; gnawing on anything to keep their front teeth from growing too long, even concrete. They eat almost anything, but they prefer stored foods, fruit, vegetables, nuts and pet food (especially cat food).

Medical Alert - May spread diseases that affect people and pets An infestation of roof rats in one home means as much as 6 out of 10 nearby homes will be infested, thus, the entire neighborhood will need to be vigilant, work together to eradicate these pesky, plague-carrying vermin (transmit disease by droppings and urine, bites, and the fleas and mites in their fur).

The roof rat measures anywhere from 13-18 inches, including its tail, weights 5-9 ounces, and have large, almost naked, ears. They prefer to live four feet or more off the ground, and can squeeze through a hole the size of a quarter.

Females have 4-6 litters per year, with 6-8 young per litter. The young mature in 2-5 months, and are adults for 9-12 months. Pregnancy takes 3 weeks.
