Mice are very well adapted to their environment whether it’s inside or outside your house. All they need is a food and water source as well as a shelter (Nest). Most of the pest control calls come in during the winter months when they prefer to say warm inside versus the harsh cold weather. Mice almost totally rely on their hearing, smell, touch and taste. They tend to travel along the side walls of the house because they have very poor eyesight. When they decided to nest to have their 5 to 10 litters a year, they normally construct them of several materials you have around the house. Each litter can have up to 6 young mice. Mice are born only 19 to 21 days after mating, so a large population can occur in a very short period of time. Mice are born hairless but in 3 short weeks they are ready to go on their exclusions. After 6 to 10 weeks they are sexually mature and able to mate. With the rapid speed of the growing population it’s very difficult to get rid of them. We at STL Pest Control have been dealing with mice since 1989 and we are very good at doing that for the customer. Learn more.

In the Midwest we normally have 2 kinds of rats. The Roof rat and the Norway rat which have similarities but some differences that set them apart from each other. Roof rats tend to be higher up in the dwelling like in joist, attics, and roofs. They squeak, squeal and scratch to announce they are present in the dwellings. They enjoy late night eating in kitchens and food pantry’s. The Norway rat tend to take residents in lower areas like basements, sewers and subways. Mainly there habit and physical appearance will set them apart from each other.
Roof rats have long slender bodies with very long tails up to 10 inches long. Large floppy ears is also a good way to distinguish from the Norway rat. They have a tendency to move back and forth as they travel such as a whip action effect. The Norway rat haver thicker bodies, blunt noises and very small ears compared to the Roof rat. The tails are short approximately 6 to8 inches. They travel much more in a straight line to and from their destination. Both types of rats are very suspusion of anything that is new on their path that adds to the difficulty in the process of trapping them. Omnivorous, roof rats and Norway rats eat varieties of different foods, but each prefers differents types of diets. Learn more.
