Rodents include a large group of biologically similar animals, such as mice, rats, and beavers. When it comes to infiltrating homes and office buildings, rats and mice are always on the top of the list. They are not only a nuisance but can also cause property damage and transmit diseases.

You know they’re lingering around in your house or commercial building, when you see rodent droppings near a food source, or when you see shredded fabric, furniture, cables, or paper lying around. In the winters, they may seek shelter under the hood of your car engine, as it provides them warmth. During their stay, they may merrily munch on some essential engine component of your car and cause damage.

Rodents have two large incisors, which constantly grow. They require regular source of chewing materials in order to maintain them at a comfortable length. Their incredibly strong teeth allow them to chew through materials such as plastic, brick, concrete and even metal.

Like humans, rodents are warm-blooded animals and are found throughout the world. Most species of rodents do not actually need to drink water to survive. Mice can typically attain all of their hydration needs from the food that they consume. Even when eating dry meals such as cereals and grains.

Most species of rodents, including rats and mice are highly social. They do not thrive when living alone. They tend to become depressed and lethargic when lonely. An extensive study conducted within the social groupings of rodents deduced that they take care of sick and injured members of their group rather than shunning them, which many mammalian species do.

Rats easily fall victim to peer pressure, as they copy or pursue what other rats do. So beware, if you think there’s only one mouse skulking around your residential or commercial space, you may need to reconsider your thoughts.
