The report says that mice are leaving droppings in computer keyboards during the night when they hunt for food crumbs on keyboards. RSC spokesman Paul Gallagher said, "We are asking office workers to take photos of offensive keyboards and workstations and to email them to us at the RSC. We will give £300 to the sender of the most awful image. We won't entertain photos that are contrived and will need witnesses."

The Royal Society of Chemistry also said that since it was difficult to banish rodents from office blocks, workers would be better off washing their hands often.

In 2008, a study by Which? found that computers are a health hazard and harbor more bacteria than a toilet seat.
