“We need to get an idea of where rat nuisance is increasing. They can, after all, transmit diseases” (The KAD)

Let’s remember that rat urine can contaminate the environment with bacteria, leptospires, and cause a dreaded disease: leptospirosis or rat disease.

Preventive measures exist: hygiene, protective equipment and vaccination
