Identifying The Rodents In Your Home
Unfortunately, rodents can create a major headache for Las Vegas’s business owners and homeowners. Once your property has been overrun with rodents, finding out which species you’re dealing with is pertinent. Failing to identify the species will make it difficult to find a viable solution to the problem. Well, you’ll find that our city is home to many rodents, including house mice and deer mice. Although both are similar, they’re not identical. You need to learn as much as you can about these rodents.
Deer mice are bi-colored, so they’ll have white feet, bellies, and undersides with a brown head and upper back. Their tails are longer than many other rodents. Plus, they have bigger ears and eyes. When they leave droppings, their droppings will be smooth and black with pointed ends. As for house mice, they tend to be black or light brown. They’re hairless and have a slightly pointed nose. Their droppings are small, black, and stinky. If your house has a musty odor, house mice could be the cause.

Health Hazards Regarding Mice
