How to Prevent Mice Infestations?
Rodents are mammals and the most numerous group of mammals on the planet. They are a very diverse group in both size and habitat. Over time rodents have been used as food, for clothing, as pets, some species such as the brown rat, black rat, and the house mouse, are serious pests, eating and spoiling food stored by people, and spreading diseases.
Rodents can also cause considerable damage to homes and buildings, due to gnawing and burrowing. They can gnaw through pipework and cause flooding and gnaw through electric cables causing power outages and fires. Rodent teeth grow constantly, so they need to gnaw objects to file their teeth down and keep them in good condition. Gnawing damage can occur on timber, metal, water pipes and PVC cables.
Rodents can be found anywhere! However, they are most likely to be found close to a food source. Rodents also like dark and warm spaces, making lofts or heating pipes the ideal place for them to live. Rodents can get through small spaces, for example a mice could get through a space as small as a ball point pen, and rats can get through a space the size of a marker pen.
Most rodent species are reasonably small with robust bodies, long tails and short limbs. They tend to be herbivores (eating seeds, grains, roots and leaves). Some species however are more adaptable omnivores consuming a mixed diet that can include, insects, fish and meat as well as plants and grains.
The most noticeable feature all rodents possess is their razor sharp incisor teeth. As the incisors do not stop growing the rodents must continually gnaw to wear them down and prevent them getting too long. These formidable teeth are also used to excavate burrows, widen gaps to squeeze through and defend themselves.
