Rats Turning Up in Survey

(Rolling Prairie, IN) - Figures are being compiled on what residents believe is a major problem with rats in the Rolling Prairie area.


Amanda Runion said an online survey shows 43-percent of residents in Rolling Prairie are having issues with rats while the figure is 57-percent just outside the unincorporated community. Runion said some people have also sought help from professional exterminators. In addition, she’s been in touch with the health department to try and get the matter addressed.


Runion said mice at times are expected, but not rats. Runion stated, “We expect to have coons, and skunks and squirrels and birds and deers and groundhogs. Foxes. All of those.  We expect that out in the country. We don’t expect to have rats." 


Rats started being seen in March. Runion plans to present the survey findings to the health department tomorrow and hopes the cause of the problem is identified and solved soon.
