Its really bad. We just moved into this neighborhood about 6 months ago. Its a nice area and we had no idea how bad the rats were... The people before us left two trashcans for us. well, the rats chewed through, and ruined those.
We've replaced them with newer cans and they've chewed through the lid of one of them!! Well, SO went to take the trash to the curb last night and we only filled up one of them. SO peeks in the other one (which was empty, but has the hole in the lid) and there are SIX dead rats in there. Fucking SIX of them. I am so grossed out, I dont even know what to do, I sure as hell am not reaching in there to get them out. I feel like were the only ones that have this problem. One of our neighbors has metal trash cans (which is what were getting)
if I call the city about it they will just fine me for having trash cans with holes in them. I'm sorry but we can't keep replacing trash cans! We can't put out poision because of our neighbors dogs.
I dont even want DD outside touching the ground. Is there anything I can do to keep them away from our trash cans? they are so gross :(
