Rat Invasion

Sunday, August 25, 2013

Residents in Seattle are getting a glimpse of what’s been hiding right under their feet. Recent construction and drilling has led to a migration of the city’s rats from their underground home to the streets above. Dubbed ‘ ratpocalypse,’ this influx of rats has Seattle residents calling in the professionals at a record rate.

Unfortunately, this problem could last for the foreseeable future. The highway drilling project that is driving the rats to the streets isn’t scheduled to be completed for at least another year. Local pest control companies recommend properly sealing homes and apartments to deter these unwanted guests from finding their way inside.
