It also does not take into account that these are for treatments, not rat populations. Some areas might have simply given up with treatment( ) or are too poor to afford it. ( )

Can you find an animal more intelligent than a rat? The fact that, despite a myriad of exterminations world wide, they still flourish! Now that's intelligence!

A number of them keep them as pets today, and they're deeply loved. I was surprised to learn that you can even leash-train a rat, and walk it around your neighborhood. I've had ferrets for 26 years, and all have been leash-trained, but too many people see me walking them, they think they're rats!

Out on my deck at the moment grilling up some sweet potatoes and I just saw a rat scurry down the alley in back and then sneak under the fence under the el tracks.

Certainly not the first time.

Certainly won't be the last.
He has to go.
