I live off of Chestnut Hill Ave and for the last 3 month the rat population is getting worst, I have try everything bait, snap traps, snap cages and now I turn to using electric trap and they seem to work the best, In the last 3 weeks have killed 16 in total, I have no idea where they are coming from they are all over. So Mayor do you think before you go running off to be governor maybe you can take care of running these rat out Cranston. For the property taxes we pay we should not have to live like this.

Richard - After doing some research I found that rats feed on dog poop. If you have dog walkers that do not pick up after their dogs, this nasty practice is greatly adding to the rat population. What to do about the careless dog walkers? I went on the internet and printed out a simple one page flier about rats feeding on dog poop. I went to Staples and had 100 copies printed. I then walked my neighborhood putting a copy in 100 mailboxes. Yes. It took some time and effort on my part. END RESULT - Dog walkers now pick up after their dogs. AND more importantly my neighbors now know that rats are attracted to more than just garbage.
