Rodents are annoying and noisy mammals that will nest in buildings providing they have access to food and are sheltered. Generally nesting in groups in your roof void, wall void and under wooden floors. Rats are mainly nocturnal mammals that are creatures of habit, they will often use the same paths to travel and feed from. Rats will continue to use the same food source for as long as possible. Mice on the other hand are a little bit more adventurous and will often explore different food sources and may feed from more than one food source.
Rats and mice have very accomplished climbing skills and can scale walls, pipes, cables and trees. Both are also extremely good swimmers. They both constantly gnaw, and because of this they are known to cause damage to a large range of materials, more often the damage in a house is to doors, skirting boards and other parts of a building structure. They are known to gnaw at upholstery, books, parts of equipment or machinery and wiring. This gnawing at wiring, which is not only costly to repair, it also has the potential to start fires.
