Did you know that a group of rats is called a “mischief?” And did you know that there is an Indian temple, overrun with rats, where people go to pray with the rats who they believe to be deceased loved ones reincarnated as these rodents?

Whether it is the man on “Hoarders” living with 2500 rats, or NPMA expert Greg Baumann discussing the love-hate relationship with rats on The History Channel’s Modern Marvels, those creatures do hold a fascination for us. (Well, some of us!)

However, it is important to remember that rats do pose health threats. Rats are vectors of disease, often contaminating food, and can cause many serious illnesses and diseases in human beings.
