NEW YORK (PIX11) – New York City is gearing up for the latest war on rats.
Starting in July, an army of inspectors will target the city’s most rat-infested neighborhoods.
They’ll be targeting parks, sewers and dumping areas where rats get together and breed.
The initiative is part of the city’s latest effort to attack a rat population that is estimated as double the human population of 8.4 million.
Financed with $611,000 in the budget, inspectors will plug up rat holes and put poison in rodent tunnels.
