Types of Mice, Rats, and Rodents in Pennsylvania
There are more than 3 types of rats that are found throughout the state. The most common 3 are the house mouse, brown rat, and black rat. At only 2.5 to 3.7 inches long, not including their tails, these rats are mostly found in homes or establishments. They often hide in wood piles and rafters.
Red squirrels, gray squirrels, and fox squirrels are some other common rodents you could encounter. They’re easily identified by their bushy tails. When they move indoors, they can be found in attics.
On the other hand, large rodents with 7 to 9.5 inches wagging along with their hairless tails may also be found in certain areas like fields and farmlands. Whether you like it or not, rodents may also be found indoors, commonly hiding in the basements .

How to Keep Mice, Rats, and Rodents Away
Rodents and rats are known to contaminate your food and water at home. Not only that, they pose danger by potentially transmitting diseases like Leptospirosis or Weil’s disease. To control these pests at home, here’s what you have to do:
- Clean after eating and store food properly
- Food containers must be rodent-proof
- Regularly clean after spills and food crumbs in the kitchen counters
- Wash your dirty dishes right after eating
- Regularly take out the trash and store it on a tight lid bin
- Seal cracks and crevices that can serve as their entry points
