Why are we so mean to rats?

Some of you may wonder what the big deal is.   Rats are actually very intelligent, social mammals.  And to many of us, they are quite pretty animals.

So why is it we wage such a war against them?

Sadly, it is because rats are important vectors of disease.  They carry a number of horrible and serious pathogens that can make you, your pets, and your family, very sick

You can read more about rats and the problems they cause in this article: All about rats
