Just this month, 153 people have died of Leptospirosis. This disease is plaguing our country for years and has claimed men, women and children. This is the result of people getting infected by having contact with rat urine which is prevalent since widespread flooding has begun, and thousands of lives is at stake.
I was doing a little research and prayed that God would lead me to a solution. Just the other night, I was reading Nikola Tesla’s biography and some people who contributed to society by their discoveries, and I came about a solution called, “Carbolic Acid.”
Carbolic Acid is used for treating wounds so people won’t get infected to avoid amputation. Now, this may be quite unrelated but it is when I Google searched this chemical. While typing on the search bar, Carboxylic Acid turned up unexpectedly which controls rat infestation.
Carboxylic Acid, on the other hand, is also quite unrelated but has given me a clue about on how to make vinegar. Further search gave me the answer that the cheap, old remedy vinegar is something that rats flee from because of its smell and acidic nature.
Finally, I found proof that vinegar will keep rats away from homes especially where families live. Another good thing about this is its affordability, environment friendly while very effective on repelling rats for poorer communities.
