Below are the most common types of Rats, Mice & Rodents found in Seattle, WA
As their name suggests, these rats like to get up to the higher heights. Gutters, power lines, and yes, roofs, are all favored spots by this rat. When the weather changes and being outside is no longer tolerable, they will make their way inside of homes and buildings. They are usually darkly colored, and can get as long as 8”. Their tails are very scaly and resemble worms. They are also not above biting if you get to close or disturb them.
Sewer Rat or Norway Rat
Norway rats have the distinction of being the largest rodents that live in human environments. So, you can see why you do not want to find one burrowing around in your home. These rats stick to the low ground, and even underground. They are less afraid of humans than other species, but they are not necessarily friendly. Their teeth can bite through piping, and they will use them on humans. As with any wild rodent, they carry diseases and bacteria, so do your best not to come into contact with one.
Despite the cute name and cute looks, the house mouse is still not a rodent you want hanging out in your home. They are the most common rodent you will come across, and that is because they breed so often. A female can have up to eight litters a year, with each litter containing up to eight babies. That is a lot of mice coming into the world. They also carry several diseases and will contaminate your food. They will bite if they are cornered, but are generally pretty shy of humans.
