Rats and Mice will always live close to a food or water source and in autumn and winter rats will seek out suitable nesting locations within buildings. Rats and mice are social animals and will often live in groups and build their nests from paper, fabric, insulation, and leaves.

Rodents’ teeth do not stop growing, that’s why they are always finding something to chew on.

They have been known to have chewed on doors, skirting, books plastic containers, and electrical wiring and have been responsible for causing fires as well.

Rats and mice have been known to spread disease through their urine and faeces contaminating food causing salmonella food poisoning.
