Another comment from a resident:

I have trapped and killed 32 rats on my property in the last 3 weeks.  They were in my hedge, living in stored pvc. Pipe, under my deck, in an out building etc. One actually made it into my house to set this whole thing off and it started a war where on a nightly basis I have been setting out traps and getting them. My neighbour has as well been setting traps and has killed about 12 so far. The neighbour across the street had to empty out his whole garage and throw out a lot of belongings as they had infested his place. To the north of me  they are leaving traces of eaten acorns under the hood of the vehicles and some have been shredded when the engine starts, as well they infested his pool pump bld. And have been seen in the grapes eating away, they hired a professional and he commented on the large amount of bait taken indicated there were a high number of them. We need public awareness, and we need to get on this soon, they will be thriving in places where people are not up to speed with the outbreak. The rats are very smart and know how to nest in places you wouldn't even think of since they are nocturnal many won't see them and think there are none on their property but I was at that mind set and they had free run for a while, the one that managed to get in my house gave me a wake up call and now the fight is on. When they see their numbers depleting they sense this and go into more rapid reproduction so we need to get something in place sooner than later. Possibly you should schedule a public awareness e-mail or meeting (town hall). Like is in place for water quality or the KVR issue There are for sure hundreds of them, we all need to attack this situation together.
