BEFORE colonisation by the white man, Australia contained over 50 species of rats and mice.
Although several of these native species have been known to breed to plague proportions they are normally slower breeders than the introduced species.
Once settlement had been established on our shores it was only a matter of time before the introduction of more of these pests, occurred probably from the British Isles.
