Rodents will account for millions of dollars of damages each year in the United States. It is also estimated that 20-25 percent of all fires with a "CAUSE UNKNOWN" may be due to rodents gnawing on wires, gas lines, etc. A few centuries ago the 'Black Plaque', carried by rats, caused the deaths of approximately 25 million people. This disease spread from the rats to humans by fleas carried by the rats. As with all animals, disease and the destruction they cause, must be controlled and monitored.
