A large proportion of people think that rats are solitary, malevolent little creatures, preferring to be on their own and enjoying going about damaging cars, machinery, food stocks and commercial products.
This isn't true. Rats are surprisingly social animals who enjoy the company of other rats as well as humans. In fact, they enjoy the company of others so much that they become lonely and depressed if they are isolated for a period of time. They talk to each other using their tails and by wobbling their eyes from side to side. Surprisingly they also chatter their teeth together to communicate.
As for the damage, the reason is that their teeth amazingly grow continuously throughout their lives meaning they need to work constantly to wear them down so they don't get too long which would stop them being able to eat.
This is what results in so much damage to crops, wiring, packaging and other commercial and industrial property.
Luckily there is a new invention which is setting out to put an end to this. The website is located here. It creates a rat free zone to keep your equipment safe, saving you time and money.
