Common rodent pest types.

The most common rodent pests to infest properties areĀ Mus musculus, the House mouse, andĀ Rattus norvergicus, the Brown rat. Rats and mice reproduce rapidly, meaning an infestation of a breeding pair of rodents can soon lead to rat or mouse populations in the hundreds, necessitating the services of professional pest controllers to resolve the problem before it gets out of hand.

Property damage caused by rodents.

Rodent teeth continually grow and this means they must gnaw on abrasive materials to wear them down in order to stop their incisors becoming overgrown. Rodents inside buildings can prove disastrous due to their gnawing tendencies, causing damage to electrical wiring, plumbing and gas lines. Rodent infestation carries the risk of electrocution, electrical fires, the failure of electrical appliances, flooding as well as gas leaks that cause asphyxiation and explosions.

Health risks posed by rodents.

Rats and mice are notorious vectors of disease that they spread, for the most part, through their urine and faeces. Rodents can also transmit external parasites such as fleas, ticks and lice which can also spread disease as well as internal parasites such as tapeworms. Common diseases transmitted by rats and mice include Leptospirosis, Salmonellosis and Rat-scratch fever while ticks that parasitise rodents can cause Lyme's Disease.
