About Rats & Mice
Rats and mice are part of the rodent family which include squirrels, guinea pigs and beavers. Rodents are characterised by having two front teeth that keep growing throughout their life - which results in their need to gnaw constantly. Australian Rodents include the native Bush and Water Rats but the introduced Black and Brown Norwegian Rats are the pests in urban areas.
Where there are humans there are rats and mice. Rats and mice have successfully adapted to survive and thrive around humans and their pets. Inadvertently we provide ideal conditions for rats and mice to breed and prosper. Fortunately there is a lot you can do to stop the invasion and prevent rats and mice from entering your home.
