Rodents are the largest group of mammals with over 1500 representative species worldwide, but just 10 reside in the UAE. Only four of these rodents associate closely with human beings and are considered pests.
The Black Rat, Brown Rat, House Mouse and Field Mouse. Rodents threaten almost every aspect of daily lives; rats and mice invade buildings and search for food and shelter. In doing so, they become a serious nuisance by contaminating, soiling and destroying commodities & packaging, damaging equipment, buildings and installations and spreading pathogens. These rodents can be mostly found in highly populated open markets and housing areas in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah.
