Rats and mice are omnivores and they tend to eat seeds, grains, fruit or anything that you do. While they've been seen chewing up paper and wiring, they don't actually eat these items. They gather these items to build their nests. If they see your home as a reliable food source, they'll happily move into the space between your walls, crawl spaces, or even dark corners of your kitchen cabinets. Some common rodent attractions are poorly sealed cereal boxes, bags of flour, and crumbs left in messy rooms of your home.
Rodents can be difficult to keep out of structures. Rodents carry diseases and pathogens that can be harmful to humans and household pets. Coming into contact with rodents or their feces, saliva, and urine can result in the spread of diseases to humans. If you find rodent activity in your home call Coppes Pest Solutions.

Where do rodents live?
Rodents live all over the world in any habitat that has access to food and water. Their small size makes it difficult to keep out of homes. Rats can enter buildings through holes the size of a quarter, and mice can enter through gaps the size of a dime.
In their natural habitats, rats and mice usually live about 4-6 months. While in the relatively hospitable conditions of a home or building, rats and mice might live about 1 year.
1/3 of Americans have seen a rodent in their home.
