Rodent Control

Three species of rodents was commonly found in Singapore, namely Rattus norvegicus (Norway rat), Rattus rattus (Roof rat) and Mus musculus (House mouse). These rats are omnivorous and will feed on almost anything available to them. Norway rat and Roof rat are large in size, measuring around 250 mm. One of the distinguishing characteristics of Norway rat is that the tail is shorter than the combined length of body and head. Unlike Norway rat, the length of tail of Roof rat is longer than the total length of body and head. House mouse is the smallest in size which is measuring around 65-95 mm.
