ABOUT THE PESTS / OTHER PESTS / RODENTS
Rats and mice have always thrived within human settlements. Their presence has spread throughout the world, mostly on ships. During the middle ages, rats were responsible for the spread of bubonic plague. They found their way to North America by the end of the 18th century.

While rats are poor climbers, they are excellent at swimming and burrowing, and can commonly be found in the damp basements and sewers of most temperate zone cities. Rats are omnivorous, aggressive, intelligent, and adaptive. Females can produce about 8 litters each year, with up to 20 young per litter. Among human settlements, rats have few natural enemies and an abundant source of food.

The common house mouse can be found throughout the world. This pest builds its nest of whatever chewable materials are available, such as clothing and paper. Females can produce litters of 4 to 8 young every three weeks, and under favorable conditions, they will breed throughout the year.

Rats and mice invade and contaminate food supplies and cause widespread destruction in the home, as well as spreading human diseases. They typically enter homes for food, water, and shelter, especially during changes in weather. They can only be controlled through baiting, trapping, and exclusion (sealing points of entry).
