  2. Mice and rats carry a huge variety of diseases, such as salmonellosis and rat-bite fever, which can be spread through their droppings, urine, saliva, rodent bites, or through fleas or ticks that have fed on an infected rodent.
  3. A pair of rats can grow to 2000 decedents over a year, if left unchecked.
  4. Rats can squeeze through openings as small as 13 mm in diameter.
