Rodents are keystone terrestrial species, which eat subterranean fungi on tree roots containing nutrients, water, fungal spores, bacteria and yeast.  Rodent pellets distributed throughout a forest serve to inoculate areas for new tree growth.  Rodents can thus help to recolonize disturbed areas with nutrient transfers.  

Could these unwanted little creatures help clean dumps as well?  The City of Lynn should welcome them near these areas.

As long as they stay underground... lets not be afraid.   They help areas cultivate soil for planting new trees and help keep old trees healthy.
