Mice are notorious carriers of the disease, and can cause serious property and structural damage. They can chew through the walls and electric wires, which could possibly cause serious circular issues or electric fire.

Rats are challenging to get rid of the mice, because they are in the night, hide during the day, and breed quickly, often when you get yourself to face with a rat in your home or business, a infestation has already become serious

Norway Rat

Norway mice (Rattus Norvegicus) includes “Norwegian water rat", “Norway wood rat", “brown rat", “house rat", “barn rat", “sewer rat" and “gray rat". These are diseases that carry patients who adapt well over time, and have successfully learned to live among humans, Norway mice originated from Great Britain, and during the 1775 US Revolutionary War, ships through North America They reached West, and West reached Canada in the 1800s.

Norway rats are long, large, adjacent, rodents (up to 21 cm long) with tail, their bodies can be 40 centimeters long and weigh as much as 1 pound. They are larger than roof mice, their shaggy fur is usually brown in color or brown. Both their tails and ears are covered with scales. Their teeth grow continuously, and they use a flask to help keep their teeth.

Norway mice are not social, but they live in colonies with the caste system of effective and subordinate members. Norway can climb rats, but they like the ground nest, and stay in the lower level of the buildings. In the common habitat, tree roots, embankments, concrete slabs and underground buildings are underground; they are also round docks in warehouses, sewer, wooden structures, basements, sellers and crawlspaces, bars, canals and livestock facilities.

They enter homes and buildings in their search for food and water. They are quick to rats, and can climb, jump or enter through swimming. Like roof mice, these rodents can squeeze through quarters-shaped holes due to their small bones and flexible body. If a Norwegian rat can get its head through the hole, cleavage or crack, then it can cover her body and pull herself through the opening

Norway rats are omnipresent whereas they follow meat, grains, fruits and nuts, they will eat anything including dog food, gourd food and dead animals. Norway rats are very resourceful, and may even catch other small rodents or small fish for food. It is very important for their existence drinking water – they need to drink nests are usually made as close as possible to the water source

Like a roof rat, a Norwegian rat reaches its sexual maturity between 2-5 months, and can breed all year. A female Norwegian mouse produces 3 to 12 liters a year, the size of the litter is very different (more than 4 to 20 babies are born). Like roof mice, the lifespan of the rat of Norway is about 1 year long

Norway rats are harming the rodents. They chew through electric wires, which can generate electricity and generate electrical fire. They make buildings cause structural damage through their harrowing and extinguishing underground. They do severe damage to the walls, roofs, floors, window apples and doors through the hole through them, as well as in untouched atix and through nests and in the walls.

These rodents can transmit various types of diseases to humans or animals including rat-by-fever (RBF), muren typhus, leptospirosis, trichinosis and food poisoning. Norway rats do not usually get rid of plague disease, such as roof mice and other rodents.

During the night, Norway rats remain hidden in their nests during the day. If nests are disturbed (usually by construction or repair), or colonies become very large, then these rodents can be exposed during the day.

Roof Rat

Roof rats (rats ratsus) are extremely adaptable, at which time the rodents transmit the diseases, and help create destructive plagues throughout the world in past and present times. Their adaptability is important in their ability to survive and emerge.

Roof mice have smooth and smooth black or brown fur, big ears, big eyes, and a pointy nose. They can grow up to 40 cm long. Roof mice have long, bald, scale tail, which are often more than the combined length of their head and body. Compared to a Norway rat, the body of a roof rat is much shiny and small. Like all rodents, their teeth grow continuously, and therefore help them to maintain unrighteousness.

These rodents can squeeze through the holes as small as a quarter, because they have small bones and are very flexible if a roof rat can fit its head through a hole. It can cover her body and pull herself up. They are fast, and wonderful climbers, often nesting in high places such as trees, attics, roofs and terraces (hence their name 'roof rat). If land is needed, then they also nest on the ground. If you come into a living root rat in your home or business during the day, then it is likely that it is high. During the day, live observations are usually done when the current nest is filled or recently worn.

Roof rats are omnipresent, and eat anything. They are huge junkers of food even though they follow the fruits, they will have food on grains, meat, seeds and even bark.

Roof mice reach sexual maturity between 2-5 months, and unbelievable breeders, a social hierarchy will be formed in the crowded rooftop rat population, which will get more often with the most influential male female rates. A female roof rat can be born throughout the year, and can cause 40 new mice in one year. Average 6 to 8 mice in rodent litter size. The life-term of the rat rat is usually 1 year.

Mice cause a serious safety hazard due to their constant chewing. They will crush through almost all things, including electric wires, they can generate electricity shortages, and even electric fire. They cause damage by tearing insulation into the walls and attics through the crowd and nesting.

In addition to eating food through contamination of food or surfaces, besides providing food poisoning to humans, roof mice can be taken through diseases like rat-byte fever (RBF) and trichinosis, through bodily contact and contamination. is. Fleas feeding dead rodents can also pass humans along with these diseases. So, whether alive or dead, roof mice have to face serious health concerns.
