Rats & mice are very capable of surviving and adapting to our environment. With constant gnawing, they have the potential to wreak destruction on household items, equipment and cables. They have been responsible for the transmission of bacteria that lead to leptospirosis, murine typhus, rat-bite fever and salmonellosis.

When threatened, some inflict pain through bites and stings.

  • Roof Rat (Rattus Diardii)
  • Little Mouse Rat (Rattus Exulans)
