Types of Rodents in Santa Ana

Norway Rats

Norway rats are also called brown rats or sewer rats. They are found wherever there are people. They live in burrows they’ve lined with fibrous materials such as cloth or paper. Their burrows are typically found near woodpiles, trash heaps, damp areas in the yard or garden and building foundations. Norway rats aren’t really good climbers so once they get in your house, they usually remain on the ground floor or in the basement of the house. They’re easily recognized by their large size, grayish-brown fur, scaly pink tail, relatively small ears and blunt muzzles.

Roof Rats

Roof rats, or black rats, are smaller than Norway rats. They’re agile climbers, live in trees, shrubs and dense vegetation. When they get into houses, they tend to live in ceilings, walls, attics and cabinets. They usually prefer warm climates and are not found in as many areas as Norway rats. Roof rats have dark gray fur, gray to white bellies, pointed muzzles, large ears and scaly tails that are longer than the rat’s body and head combined.

Voles

Voles are also called meadow mice. They are small rodents found in areas with dense vegetation. Although occasionally seen scurrying about above ground, they spend most of their time in burrows. Their presence in an area is given away by grass covered trails that connect burrow openings. Voles are mouse-like creatures with short legs, short furry tails, compact bodies, and blackish-brown to grayish-brown fur. Unlike mice, voles rarely enter homes because they prefer wild land with good ground cover.

Tree Squirrels

There are 4 species of tree squirrels found in California: the western gray squirrels; the eastern fox squirrels; Douglas squirrels; and the eastern gray squirrels. Tree squirrels are active during the day. They primarily live in trees and don’t hibernate in the winter. They feed on nuts, fungi, insects, eggs, seeds, acorns and young birds.

Kangaroo Rats

Kangaroo rats are small jumping rodents found in deserts throughout Mexico and the South Western United States. There are approximately 20 to 22 species of kangaroo rats, many found in California. They typically have large heads, big eyes and long tails that may be longer than the head and body combined. They have extremely long back legs, which they use to leap like a kangaroo, hence their name. The kangaroo rats are nocturnal creatures, so they stay in their burrows during the heat of the day and forage for food at night, sometimes letting their food dry in shallow pits before bringing it into their burrows.
