Rodents have been successful in populating every continent except Antarctica. This is because of their small size, short breeding cycle and ability to eat a variety of foods. They are the second most successful mammal on the planet, coming second only to humans.
Rodents consume and destroy their food source during feeding. This can cause devastating damage to a wide range of different settings, such as domestic households, commercial businesses, farms, manufactures and livestock.
Not only do rodents gnaw through many materials, but they can also ruin food supplies by excreting on them.
Rats have sharp incisor teeth that continue to grow throughout their lives. They need to be worn down on hard objects, which is why rats are always chewing on something. The bad news if they live in your walls, under your floors or in your ceiling is that they could be chewing through your electrical cables or power box. There is no evidence to suggest they do this with malicious intent but the result can be quite disastrous.
Live and exposed wires pose a very serious fire risk. It only takes a tiny amount of water or a surge of electricity to create a spark. Walls are often filled with flammable insulation or, at the very least, timber. The threat of this kind of fire is particularly worrying given the fact that the act of wire chewing could predate the actual fire by years.
