Types Of Rodents
Rodents are a group of mammals characterized by continuously growing incisors in the upper and lower jaws. They often damage building materials and personal belongings in their effort to keep their incisors short. In addition to the extensive damage these pests are capable of, rodents are also a threat to health, having the ability to spread disease through direct handling and contact with droppings, urine, and saliva as well as through rodent bites.
