Rats have been a major pest to humans for thousands of years.

Rats were first introduced to New York City in 1750, and quickly spread throughout the country. They caused significant health problems by spreading diseases such as the bubonic plague and typhoid fever, which led to many deaths. Today, rats still cause damage by chewing on electrical wires, causing blackouts or fires. They also contaminate food supplies and spread parasites, such as fleas and ticks.
