The two prime rodents that invade homes: rats and mice. Both rodents are fast breeders and are attracted to homes with trash and readily available food. Both mice and rats enter homes through cracks and holes in foundations, walls, windows and doors.
Mice and rats will live in holes, cardboard boxes, dryer vents, attics and burrows.
THE DANGER RODENTS POSE TO HUMANS
Both mice and rats spread disease through their feces. Mice and rats will also bite humans.
Mice come into homes looking for warmth and food, and they contaminate more food than they consume. They pose a significant danger to people because mice will chew through electrical wiring that can cause a house fire. Mice and rats also cause overall structural damage to your home.
