Rodents: The Domesticated Pests

Rodents are one of the most successful groups of mammals on Earth, having been able to survive in many different types of environments. They also have figured out many ways to avoid danger. Even though they can’t see very well, all of their other senses are very strong. While some rodents have cute appearances and can be kept as domestic pets, they are broadly considered pests for a few reasons. Their habit of damaging human food, property, and health make rodent pest control an important concern for homeowners.

Reasons for Rodent Pest Control


  1. Rodents consume human food, both in storage and in fields, and damage food stores with their urine and droppings.

  2. Some species of rodents can transmit human diseases.

  3. Rodents can damage property, including clothing and structures, through burrowing and gnawing. If this occurs with electrical wires, a fire can result.

Rodent Control

There are many reasons for businesses, organisations and home owners to control rodents:

  • Prevent damage: rodents can damage buildings and their fittings such as electrical wiring and plumbing, packaging and goods such as clothing and furniture.

  • Prevent and eliminate contamination: almost every type of food in storage or processing is subject to rodent attack or contamination.

  • Prevent disease: rodents can carry a large number of diseases that affect humans and animals, both farm animals and pets.

  • Conform with the law: national and international laws and regulations require control of rodents in property and ships, including for health and safety. Failure to comply can lead to prosecution.

  • Prevent financial loss: caused by damage to goods, compensation, litigation and loss of trade.

  • Prevent loss of reputation and goodwill: the presence of rodents on commercial premises and damaged goods are unacceptable to other businesses and the public.
