Control Rats Save Lives

Control Rats Save LivesRats have become an enor­mous prob­lem in the Dis­trict of Colum­bia. Each and every one of us is respon­si­ble for keep­ing the rat pop­u­la­tion under control.

Rats basi­cally need three things to sur­vive: food, water, and shelter.

Accord­ing to noted urban Roden­tol­o­gist Bobby Cor­ri­gan, PhD, the key to rodent con­trol is san­i­ta­tion. Rats can travel some dis­tance and climb sig­nif­i­cant heights in search of food. They can chew through just about any­thing if given enough time. They need only 1–1/2 ounces of food daily to thrive – and they eat almost everything.

In an effort to con­front this grow­ing prob­lem in our neigh­bor­hoods the Foggy Bot­tom Asso­ci­a­tion has put together a two-page guide detail­ing every­thing you need to know. Click Here to view the FBA’s Con­trol Rats Save Lives pamphlet.
