"There are several types of rodents in Minnesota that may invade and infest your property. Common rodents in Minnesota include mice, rats, voles, and chipmunks. These rodents can cause damage to your property, contaminate your food, and spread diseases." Troy Schmidt
Different types of rodents in Minnesota:
Mice: The most common rodent found in Minnesota homes and businesses. They are small, fast, and reproduce quickly, making them difficult to control without professional help.
Rats: Larger and less common than mice but can cause more damage to property and spread diseases.
Voles: Small, burrowing rodents that can damage lawns and gardens by eating roots and bulbs.
Chipmunks: Common in Minnesota and can damage gardens and yards by digging burrows and eating plants.

Mice often find their way inside homes as the weather gets cooler and food scarcer. Minnesota’s reputation for bone-chilling weather makes our homes the perfect place for them, especially when it gets colder. You see, it only takes a small crack or hole on the exterior for a small mouse to squeeze their way right in. And as long as they have what they need for survival – food, water, and shelter, mice will begin to rapidly multiply.
Mice can and do eat through just about anything. If it’s softer than their teeth, the will gnaw their way through.
Their front incisor teeth never stop growing and can grow as much as 5 inches in a year’s time.
They can jump 12 feet horizontally like a superhero and 12 inches vertically.
They don’t require water and thrive in the heat.
They have Spiderman-like abilities in scaling vertical surfaces.
Meadow voles eat many greens and seeds, including crops, garden produce, fruits, and the bark of fruit trees. When other food is scarce, they sometimes eat meat.
Active year-round, meadow voles clip grass to create tunnels. In winter, snow covers their tunnels. In spring, when the snow melts, you might see these odd-looking tunnels of dirt and grass on top of your lawn.
Southern red-backed voles have reddish-brown fur on their backs. They are believed to be one of the most abundant mammals in Minnesota’s forests.
Southern red-backed voles are active around the clock. Agile climbers, they cache food–seeds, nuts, fruits, leaves, bark, roots, fungi, and insects.
Rock Voles live only in the northeastern corner of Minnesota. They eat insects, fungi, grasses, and other plants. They prefer to live in forests with a lot of moss-covered boulders, scurrying around in subterranean runways and between rocks.
Woodland Voles live in the far southeastern tip of Minnesota, where they burrow into the soil and leaf litter.
Eastern Heather Voles live near the Canadian border at the southernmost part of their range.
The brown (Norway) rat also known as the common rat, street rat, sewer rat, wharf rat, Hanover rat, Norway rat, Norwegian rat and Parisian rat, is a widespread species of common rat.
The brown (Norway) rat is nocturnal and is a good swimmer, both on the surface and underwater, and has been observed climbing slim round metal poles several feet in order to reach garden bird feeders.
The brown (Norway) rat is a true omnivore and will consume almost anything, but cereals form a substantial part of its diet.
The brown rat can breed throughout the year if conditions are suitable, with a female producing up to five litters a year.
The gestation period is only 21 days, and litters can number up to 14, although seven is common.
The Norway rat reach sexual maturity in about five weeks. Under ideal conditions (for the rat), this means that the population of females could increase by a factor of three and a half in 8 weeks (5 weeks for sexual maturity and 3 weeks of gestation), corresponding to a population growing by a factor of 10 in just 15 weeks.
As a result, the population can grow from 2 to 15,000 in a year.
The maximum lifespan for a Norway rat is three years, although most barely manage one year.
