Rodents have become a frequent pest in Bermuda, especially in recent years. They can enter homes by various means. They can climb up the insides of pipes with diameters between 1 1/2″ – 4″.
A rat’s teeth are so strong it can bite through aluminum, lead and other metals. Rats can squeeze through an opening the size of a quarter; mice can fit in openings the size of a dime.
The best method of rodent prevention is sealing all possible entry points with either foam or wire mesh.
Rats and mice eat any kind of food that people eat. They also contaminate much more food than they eat, with urine, droppings and hair. Rats can bite people and they can also cause damage and fires to our structures by gnawing.
The most common rodent pests are the rats and mice that have adapted to living with man and sharing his food and shelter. They include the Norway rat, the roof rat and the house mouse. The movement of rats and mice is usually related to food, water and harborage.
