The vertebrates of greatest pest importance to humans are the bats, birds, commensal mice and rats, and squirrels, which either roost or nest on or within human structures or nearby. These animals are not only a nuisance, but they may damage/destroy property, eat and contaminate stored food, and/or be of human health importance as disease vectors and allergen sources.
