Caption: Rat-catcher. Historical artwork of a 17th century rat-catcher seen with rats (Rattus sp. ). Rats are responsible for many diseases including the plague, leptospirosis (Weil's disease) and rabies. In the most devastating pandemic of bubonic plague, the Black Death (1346-1353), a quarter of the population of Europe died due to rats carrying fleas infected with the plague. Controlling rat populations in cities is essential to guard against the diseases they spread.
