The Way Rats Are Portrayed In Society

Rats are commonly discussed in our society.  They are evocative little creatures about which different people think different things.  The Hindus hold them in a very positive light. They believe them to become the embodiment of the Hindu deity Ganesh and always have a statue of one in his temples.  The Karni Mata temple has thousands of rats which are fed milk and grain by the priests. They believe that the rats will be reincarnated as Saddhus the holy men of Hinduism.  It is truly amazing to see the beautiful building overrun with them and the priests feeding them.

The ancient Romans had no distinction between rats and mice. Instead they called them 'mus maximum' and 'mus minimus' respectively.

The rat is the primary sign of the Chinese zodiac and those born with the rat have the same character traits being intelligent, loyal and wasteful.  They get on well with 'dragons', but not with 'horses'.

In Isle of Man, an island off the north-west of England, 'rat' is taboo. In fact the word is often used as an expletive in many areas of the world.  This is possible due the fact that rats are seen in a negative way due to their involvement in the spread of horrible diseases such as leptospirosis.

Rats unfortunately damage our property. This is why Hammer Technologies have come up with their great new invention which creates a rat free area around your property.  It works with cars and commercial buildings as well.  Using amazing new patent-pending technology it can be effective when other techniques fail.  It is humane and non-toxic.  This is in stark contrast to some nasty poisons which lead to a lingering and painful death for rats, cats and any other animals which eat it.
