Coronavirus has closed restaurants in most countries around the world and forced people to stay indoors. We are seeing many results from this process, one of which is that rats have been forced to find new sources of food and change their behavior.
Last week, the US Centers for Disease Control warned that the behavior of food-seeking rats could be unusually aggressive. The warning said the closure of the restaurant had reduced the amount of food available to rats, especially in areas where commercial activity was high. It has also been reported that rats generally rely on wasted food and waste that comes out of shopping malls.
However, these hungry rats are now looking for new sources of food. And because they are looking for new places and resources, their activities have increased all over the world and they are usually seen in places where they were not seen before.
The Center for Disease has warned that there is a strong possibility that the number of complaints about rat aggression in cities could rise. The spread of the coronavirus has killed about a third of the world’s population in recent months. The implementation of quarantine in many countries has reduced the production of waste from which rats depended on food, which is why the behavior of rats has changed.
In April, Britain’s National Pest Technicians Association warned that the closure of schools, pubs, restaurants, hotels, and tourist destinations and the public’s social distance would have some unintended consequences. According to the association, when food is not available, insects and reptiles will come out of empty buildings in search of food. A group of stray and hungry rats can wreak havoc, damage homes, and property, and spread disease.
Corrigan says they may reach a room in your home where there are children or in a hospital or nursing home. Mice can spread 55 different diseases, but it is not yet clear if they can spread the Code 19 epidemic. They can damage electrical wires and wood in a home, which can lead to fires. One way to do this is to completely close the lines and cracks in the house. Seal the pipes and all possible areas where rats can enter your home.
There should be very few spaces inside the house where they can hide, so clean every part of your house thoroughly. The food at home in such pots and pans keep them tightly closed and free of reptiles or rats. And yet if you see them somewhere in your home, Professor Corrigan’s advice is to contact the experts instead of dealing with them yourself. “If you suddenly see Corona’s annoyed rats in your house, dealing with them won’t be something you can do on your own,” he says.
