It sounds as if the rat problem is moving into residential areas in a big way. Specifically, I am in the Maplecrest section of town and lots of chatter on our block's Facebook page about rats and, of equal concern, the town's failure to return calls and answer questions about this problem. 

Mice and rats are a huge problem on our block.  I have found the Health Department to be very responsive considering that they are spread very thin with concerns related to the pandemic in addition to the rat problem.  I have found sending an email to Candice or Peter works better than leaving a voice message since both tend to be out in the field much of the day.  

I've been trying to hire a feral cat for about 2 months now without success.
