Habits of Rats & Mice
Rats and mice usually live in groups called packs. New packs are formed when an adult male and adult female go off on their own to start a new colony at a suitable place.
These pests will eat just about anything you can imagine, typical Canadian house mouse and brown rats can go through trash or eat any food that is left unprotected.
Rats and mice are omnivorous, that means they have the ability to eat and survive on both plant and animal matter, typical house mouse and also brown rat prefer cereals, but the black rat prefers fruit and foods with high moisture content.
Basically, they are not picky eaters, as long as there is easy food source nearby, they can and will invade for infestation.
One of the main reasons these pests have been causing problems for humans for centuries is because they are experts in being undetectable when infesting and building colonies. This is due to their ability to slip through the tiniest of the holes. Mice and Rats are a threat to properties and the people living within as they can spread different kinds of diseases also cause structural damage through their destructive eating habits (e.g. chewing through drywalls, electrical wires and wood).
Understanding rat’s biology and living habits is important for successful rat and mice extermination from your home or commercial property.
