Rats and Mice
There is a noticeable variation in the size between rats and mice; mice with their long and slender tails covered with fur, unlike their rat counterparts with tails that are shorter and thicker. Despite their differences, rats and mice carry the same diseases (Listeria and Salmonella) which must be prevented within office and hotel environments in order to avoid contamination.
Ants are most active in summer periods as it is the safest time of year for them to forage for food. In the winter, they are unable to survive the cold; therefore, they will gather their nutrition in hotter periods and store for more extended periods. As a result, ants are protected from the cold weather and can consume their stored food as opposed to risking the cold.
Pigeons, despite their sometimes pleasant appearance, can carry a wide variety if deadly diseases such as Ornithosis, Listeria and E-coli. These diseases can be transmitted to people not only via pigeon droppings but also by the birds themselves. Pigeon fouling not only leads to an unpleasant smell, but is also an eyesore for buildings and outdoor furniture. This is a particular problem when attempting to attract potential customers to a public venue.

This is of particular importance within hospitality-related environments such as hotels.
