Rats and mice have long been recognised as agents for transmitting disease - whether through the parasites they carry on their bodies or the droppings and urine they deposit in their travels. Historically they are infamous for the role they played in the spread of the plague across Europe in the 14TH century (Wikipedia website).
Smaller towns with long rural borders, and streams passing through urban areas, tend to provide both food and a corridor for rats to migrate from rural areas into urban areas. Both rats and mice are good tree climbers and will seek out points of entry around waste pipes, and may even access a dwelling through a drain via a toilet bowl.
