Rats are excellent climbers and they usually live in spaces on the tops of buildings, on roofs or in attics, basements and ground floors. They also live in sheds, garages, boxes, ceilings, under floors, in wood heaps and in thick grass.  Mice mainly live in structures.  However, they can live outdoors as well.  They breed throughout the year and share their nests with their relatives.


Rats cause extensive damage to insulation inside walls and in attics, they cause structure damages by chewing and carrying many diseases.  They also chew on electrical wires, which can cause fires.  They are known to damage pool heaters, hot tubs and barbecue grills.  Some rats will also attack both animals and humans.  Small amounts of mouse urine trigger allergies, particularly in children.  Mice spread diseases by contaminating food and water (and through bite wounds) with their waste products.  Mice can also spread disease through parasites (such as ticks, fleas and mites).  These parasites bite the infected mouse and then spread the disease by biting humans.
