    Dr Drew states this at minute 2:59.

    How can there not be a rat plan at the city level?

    That should be a big story but I guess it won’t be until it happens.

    Sadly, Its true and if you work downtown L.A., its very common to see HUGE rats running the street or on the sidewalk. In fact, City Hall is infested with rats not mice, RATS. I have friends who have had rats jump out of their desk drawers and they have rat traps all over City owned downtown bldgs.

    For the second time in a month -- I saw a rat running on the platform in the subway. This time it was MY home station!!!!

    Preemptively, I am going to get a contractor to give my place the once over to fortify any weak areas they may get in....

    Downtown LA has a huge homeless issue as well. Big contributing factor. People living outside, means food waste, bodily waste, drug waste. It's ripe for rat infestation. And they charge ungodly amounts for those downtown highrise apartments these days.

    It's a smorgasbord for rats!


    Rats live very well in the NYC transit system what with people improperly disposing their garbage- leaving it on trains or throwing it on the track beds. For every one that you see, there are hundreds more. The increase in construction doesn't help either because it disturbs rats in their old dens causing them to seek out new homes. Good luck, vevster!

    :cry2: I tweeted the NYCTSubway and they asked me details and said they would place traps in response to my complaint.

    BTW, I've started a Rat Prevention thread in the home forum. I want to take preventative action.....

    Dr Drew is thinking about running for Congress. He has had enough.

    Yeah, I know about Bushwick. You see dead rats flattened in the street! I feel sorry for people that have to walk there at night.
