Rats in Seattle Update

I wrote about the exploding rat population in Seattle in this blog just about six weeks ago.

Now the major local press is focusing on the rat epidemic in Seattle.  Here is an article from the Seattle Times giving lots of statistics I did not know when I wrote my original piece.

7th worst city in the United States for rats. (Sorry, Big Easy.  You are #1.)

2% of all homes in the city officially report rat infestations each year, or more than 28,600 complaints.

When you live in a city where you see huge giant rats nearly every day of the week there is a problem for pedestrians.

You can just imagine the huge problems all this is causing for real estate owners, property managers, and investors.
