    About This Project

    Rats create public health issues in cities around the world because they carry diseases shared with people such as leptospirosis and plague. Rodent control may reduce the risk of disease by removing rats, but some methods like rodenticides might make rats more susceptible to disease. We have been studying the abundance and health of rats in Chicago and now aim to test whether rats exposed to rodenticides are more likely to carry disease.
