Pest! City Launches Rat Control Web Site

New York City tells you how to get rid of rats

The New York City health department has launched a rat control Web site.

The site includes information on how to recognize signs of rats, how to choose a pest-control company and how to organize community efforts to fight rats.

Important steps in keeping down the rat population, the Web site says, include storing garbage in rat-resistant containers with lids and checking for cracks or holes in building foundations and sidewalks.
