They would be even more hesitant if it was someone they didn’t know. This same logic applies to rodents.

Secret Ways Rodents Make Their Way Around Homes
There are two main ways that rodents break into homes here in Frisco. The first method involves finding gaps, cracks, and openings that are big enough to crawl or squeeze through. The second method involves finding gaps, cracks, and openings that are ALMOST big enough to squeeze through and chewing on them until they are. Mice and rats have teeth that are strong enough to chew through wood, plastic, and vinyl siding. Rats are also able to chew through aluminum and soft concrete. Once indoors rodents get around homes by crawling through wall/ceiling voids, chimneys, crawl spaces, and other spaces that are not easily accessible to humans. They often chew holes through walls, floors, and ceilings to gain access to interior living spaces from these hidden areas.
