Rodents are quick to make nests in your house and bring a lot of un-wanted diseases and germs in to your house. Cockroaches are another nuisance, but they can be easily eliminated with bug sprays. Rodents are much more difficult because things like bug sprays do not have an effect on them. The easiest way to get rid of rodents is to use poison bait or mouse traps or by adopting a cat.
