Knowing how to identify a rodent is helpful to know how to deal with it. Each species of rat or mouse can be identified by distinguishable features. The roof rat, also known as a black rat because of its black or dark brown fur, is a common rodent found in the Gilbert, AZ area. You can easily identify this rodent by its long, hairless tail that is longer than its body. Including its tail, a roof rat can be up to 18 inches long. A packrat, or woodrat, is not as large as the roof rat but has a long tail with brown fur and a light-colored underbelly.

A house mouse and deer mouse are usually pretty easy to tell apart. You will know a house mouse by its light brown or gray fur and nearly furless tail. Its coat is also a solid color. A deer mouse will be gray or tawny brown with a white underbelly, which extends to the underside of its short tail.
