They Reveal the Cities with the Most Rats in America and Los Angeles Didn’t Go Well

Who would have thought that Los Angeles, one of the cities of glamour, celebrities and sunny weather all year round, could also be infested with the most rat in America.

According to a study published by Orkin Pest Control Company, the city has the third largest number of rats in the country after Chicago and New York.

Commercial and residential properties are included in the ranking prepared in 50 cities of the country. The measurement was done from September 1, 2021 to August 31, 2022.

“Each fall, rats and other rodents invade about 21 million homes in the United States. They typically enter homes between October and February in search of food, water, and shelter from the cold. And as in previous years In the U.S., with the epidemic-induced influx of outdoor food structures, rodents have found the right places to feed, live, and multiply, so consumers should pay special attention to the attractants that attract rats and mice.” Orkin explained in a statement.

According to two animal control experts, it was spiraling out of control.

The Los Angeles County Public Health Department has warned people to stay away from rats and do everything possible to remove them if they are in homes, as they are transmitters of diseases.

“Remove any food and water sources, such as pet food left over overnight or rotten fruit or nuts from trees. Get rid of objects that may provide shelter for rodents, so they are less likely to live and breed in your yard. To prevent rodents from entering your home, close all openings larger than 1/4 inch, especially around pipes and ducts. Cracks around doors, vents, windows and other similar openings should be covered with ‘rat-proof’ material such as sheet metal,” explains the health department.
