The ability of Rats and mice to survive in mankind's world is legend.  They exist worldwide and will readily invade well-maintained suburban residences as well as garbage dumps.  If allowed to proliferate, rats and mice can pose a serious health hazard as well a be a significant economic problem, in that they both contaminate food and destroy much property by gnawing.



House mice are occasionally found in fields, but usually in buildings. They will eat most anything and breed year round having as many as a dozen litters a year of 5-8 young each. Young are able to breed at six weeks. Because this mouse chooses to live near humans, it is considered a pest. This species is the one sought after in trapping and poisoning efforts by humans

Norway Rat


This rat lives both with man, and in the open where vegetation is tall. It makes its home principally in a basement or a burrow under a sidewalk or outbuilding. It appears to be most common around feed stores, chicken houses and garbage dumps.

The Norway Rat is more at home on the ground, but has been seen crossing from one building to another along a telephone wire, so it is an excellent climber. Around poultry houses, the rat feeds extensively on eggs and young chickens. It has even been known to kill lambs and young pigs!
