Do more rodents live in urban areas, or wild areas?
Today, it is not such a big issue to see wild animals in the urban areas. This is because as we develop cities and suburban areas, we are slowly encroaching on areas that were initially the natural habitats of animals. There are also other people who love exotic pets and after a while, get irresponsible and let them loose. This has led to a big issue of wild animals and today you can find wild animals thriving in the urban areas.
Rodents are also wild animals and they are also able to live and thrive in the urban settings. This kind of urban wildlife is very much associated with humans. Rodents will stick closer to the humans due to the comfort that they are able to get. Just like us, rodents need a safe and warm place to live in and breed. Also, they have a food requirement that needs to be dealt with. There are all sorts of garbage bins in cities today and this is one of the reasons as to why the rodents have made it so far.
Rodents are also able to thrive in the urban areas due to the fact that they can be able to move around without being spotted. They can enter into vents and go through drainage ways and pies so as to get into residences and all other areas that may seem to be hard to reach. They are also scavengers and can eat lots of what the humans call garbage. They are also able to reproduce so quickly and that is why their populations seem to be high at all times. The lack of completion and predators within the urban settings make them thrive.
In the current day and age, more and more rodents are living within the urban areas and they make it quite well. They have food and water readily available and they reach our homes with great ease. As we continue to clear the wild areas, more and more wild animals will make it to the urban settings and find a new way to survive.
When rodents invade homes, relocation may need to be done. However, there are those who choose snap traps to deal with them. If you consider trapping rodent that has invaded your home because you believe that this will be humane solution: capturing it and them releasing in wilderness, think again.
