Rat is an animal that belongs to the Muridae family. These mammals are classified into the category of pests because their behavior is very disturbing human life and can even result in material losses. For example, if a rat bites cables in a building, and then between the wires connected to each other there will be a short circuit and a fire in the building. Rodents can also bite your computer cables so that your computer is error caused by electrical short circuit, even though the important work files are in the computer. In fact, rodents also carry diseases that risk life-threatening consequences.
Here are some diseases from mice that can spread to humans:
- Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS)
- Hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS)
- PES (Yersina pestisia)
- Lymphocytic chorio-meningitis (LCM)
- Rat bite fever (RBF)
With all the losses and diseases that can be created by rats, of course, rat control is very important to create a sense of security, comfort, and calm.
