Rodents are identified as major pests because they are commonly found near human homes and are most likely to benefit from human structures, food and waste. Rats and mice cause an issue for humans living & their preserved food.
Basic rodents’ characteristics’
Rodents are capable of transmitting disease to humans through their hairy bodies, urine & droppings. A single mouse can excrete 40 to 100 droppings per day. Rats and mice might also bite a time, although it is rare. Sometimes a bite can result in a fatal disease if not treated can be dangerous. Some people develop an allergic reaction to rats, which can cause asthma related diseases.
Food contamination by rats and mice can cause great damage. Between one-sixth and one-third of food production is lost annually due to contamination, who also states that a single rat can consume about 1 ounce of food per night. Some rats’ families/colonies can be of more than 90 rats.
Rats and mice are also successful breeders. A female rat can breed every 4 weeks, and usually gives birth to about 6 to 12 young at one time. Female mouse reproduces every 3 to 4 weeks and usually gives birth to about 5 or 6 young, although sometimes up to 12. This means that both rodents’ colonies can grow fast, although rats only live for about a year. Mice can live up to 2 or 3 years under ideal conditions.
