A number of diseases have been associated with rats, including leptospirosis, which is spread through rat urine. Rat droppings and urine can contaminate stores of food. Rat excrement contains allergens that can trigger asthma in susceptible individuals. When living in close proximity with humans, foraging rats or those disturbed have been known to bite people. Some diseases can be transmitted through rat bites, but rats are not considered to be a host of the rabies virus. The tendency of rats to gnaw can cause structural damage as well as damage to wiring.
