What Are Rats?
Rats are rodents that can be differentiated from mice based on their size, which is almost always larger. The two types of rats that people see most often are the black rat and the brown rat. These furry 4-legged pests are quick, racing around on the ground scavenging for food before darting back to their hiding spots; you may only see a blur of color and a tail as they speed by out of the corner of your eye. Most of these rodents won’t live more than a year due to their presence at the bottom of the food chain and a large number of predators, but they remain a nuisance.
Rat Infestation Prevention
Rat infestations are without a doubt something you want to prevent. The rats that some people keep as pets are tame, but wild rats are not. They can spread many different diseases from viral to bacterial, such as Ebola, salmonella, influenza, and more, which all have devastating effects when contracted by humans. Rats can transmit rabies as well, and are even thought to be the primary accelerator behind the bubonic plagues or Black Death that killed nearly 200 million people in Europe in the 1300’s. Scientists have used these rodents for millions of studies to perform research on different diseases and to aid in developing new drugs and medicines, but as you can see, you don’t want them in your house or anywhere near it.
