Scurrying in the shadows and lurking under the streets, you can be sure that in any place where there are humans, there are almost certainly rats.
Known for their fierce survival instincts, brown rats prefer to build their burrows in urban sewers and the dwellings of humans, eating one-fifth of foodstuffs planted every year, but contaminating far more.
In major cities like London and New York, some experts say they are as many rats as there are humans, while more conservative estimates put the ratio closer to one rat for every four humans.
To fully understand how the rise of the rats has happened, you must understand the staggering rate that they reproduce.
