Rats and mice are, next to man, the most successful animals on earth in terms of abundance and diversity. Man has unwittingly helped their spread throughout the word by exploration and his own success. However, they have, in some circumstances, become his worst enemy.
Billions of dollars each year are lost by contamination of food by rodent droppings, urine and hair. Rodents destroy much more food than they could possibly eat, and their chewing habits have been responsible for causing fires.
They are so prodigious that, within a year, a rat can have between 30 and 80 offspring, depending on the species. One pair could generate 15,000 rats in their life span. Rats can squeeze through a hole the size of a 10 cent piece, fall 70 feet with no injury, tread water for three days, eat all sorts of food and survive an atomic bomb test.
