For the third consecutive year, Chicago ranks as the city with the most rodent treatments documented Orkin’s city lists. The rankings are the results of the tally of the number of residential and commercial rodent treatments the company performed from Sept. 15, 2016 – Sept. 15, 2017.
As the weather gets colder, mice and rats look for food, water and shelter inside to survive the winter. This year complaints are up 32 percent in Chicago.
Rats can squeeze through a hole the size of a quarter, and mice can fit through a hole the size of a dime. They can often chew their way in — making their own entrance hole.
Just in time for Halloween, the rats are out wandering the city of Chicago, which is also the top rattiest city! https://t.co/8B7gaYnGBE
