  • Rats have long been considered deadly pests. Once considered a modern myth, the rat flood in India has now been verified. Indeed every fifty years, armies of bamboo rats descend upon rural areas and devour everything in their path.
  • When introduced into locations where rats previously did not exist they cause a huge amount of environmental degradation. The black rat is considered to be one of the world's worst invasive species.
  • Rats in New York City are famous for their size and prevalence. The urban legend that the rat population in Manhattan equals that of its human population speaks volumes about New Yorkers' awareness of the presence, and on occasion boldness and cleverness, of the rodents
  • Places to look for rat infestations are around pipes, behind walls and near garbage cans. Rats thrive in areas with large amounts of old decaying trash, debris, and other materials, such as lumber, firewood, mulch piles, grass clippings, etc.
  • Dry weather will cause storm drains, ponds, creeks, etc... to dry up thus causing rodents to search out sources of water and food. Swimming pools, water bowls, bird baths, watered lawns, are all sources of sought out by rodents during drought conditions.
  • A rat can go longer than a camel without having a drink of water. A rat can tread water for three days and survive being flushed down the toilet. And it can return to the building via the same route.
  • Rats are known to transmit several potentially fatal diseases to humans, including viral hemorrhagic fever, plague, Weil's disease, and Q fever.
  • It's estimated that rodents nibble away at one-fifth of global food supply every year, making them significant contributors to famine -- not to mention accruing $19 billion in damaged goods.
