About Rodents
 
Rodent are considered a worldwide pest of industrial, commercial and domestic properties. They feed on all kinds of food and that includes ours. When they do that, they contaminate our food with their urine, saliva and droppings. Through these excrements, rats transmit diseases such as leptospirosis.

Rats carry fleas and mites on their bodies which also transmit diseases to humans through their bites. Rodents have two incisors in the upper as well as in the lower jaw which grow continuously and must be kept worn down by gnawing. This gnawing habit destroys household items. Buildings have gone up in flames because rats have gnawed through the insulation around electrical wires. Monetary losses causes by rodents due to contamination and destruction of commodity and property, loss of goodwill due to damaged and fouled articles runs into millions every year worldwide. The three main types of rats found in Singapore are;

Rattus Norvegicus - Norway Rat, Common Rat, Sewer Rat
Rattus Rattus - Roof Rat, Black Rat, Ship Rat
Mus Musculus - House Mice

Sewer Rat (Rattus Norvegicus)
 
Distingushed from other rodents by the heavier, thick- set, blunt snout, smaller ears, and the tail which is shorter than the head and body combined.

Rattus Norvegicus usually lives in burrows in soil, beneath buildings, infesting drains, sewers and rubbish dumps. It may also lived entirely in buildings where range of movement is limited but travelled outdoors for food. Agile and good climber although less so than Rattus Rattus. A pair of Rattus Norvegicus can potentially produced up to 200 offspring in a year.

 
Roof Rat (Rattus Rattus)
 
Rattus Rattus are smaller, more slender, with pointier snout, larger ears and tail which is longer than the head and body combines as compared to Rattus Norvegicus. Omnivorous, but with a preference for fruits and vegetables. They prefer to nest above ground, such as in roof attics, false ceilings and among unwanted articles stored indoors.

Frequently using beams and other structures as runways, often using trees and connecting wires to enter roof space. Its ranges of movements is extensive both within and outside of buildings. Rattus Rattus reproductive characteristics are similar to Rattus Norvegicus.

 
House Mouse (Mus Musculus)
 
A worldwide pest of buildings distinguished from the rats by smaller size and from young rats by the larger ears of the mouse, much longer tail and smaller head and feet relative to the body. Mus Musculus is grey at the upper body and light grey at lower of the body.

Its habitat is normally indoor, preferring dry nesting locations, usually ground living but can climb. Movement in search of food is limited, nests occurring within the food source itself and frequently made from shredded paper. A pair of Mus Musculus is potentially able to produce up to 2000 offspring a year, much more prolific than rats.
