Rodents are small mammals. Rodents include: mice, rats, squirrels, beavers, hamsters, and guinea pigs. All rodents share teeth with the ability to gnaw on very tough surfaces.

Rodents also pose a alarming risk to properties because of this.Rodents have a tendency to to destroy wall insullation, wood, and electrical wiring. Rodents cause 25% of house fires every year.
These animals have short breeding cycles and the ability to have a litter of up to 6. Each member of the litter can begin reproducing themselves at about a month old. Rodent populations outdoors are usually kept down by natural predators. Indoors however, rodents have no predators and are able to continuously reproduce without threats.
The CDC has a list of some of the diseases transmitted by rodents. The viruses directly transmitted by rodents are usually throgh exposure to fecal matter and urine, through the air or orally. Rodents do not have the ability to hold their bladder, so while they are running around they are also relieving themselves wherever they are. This can create a toxic and hazardous situation for the young, elderly, and even healthy adults.
