I'd still live there over anywhere in the US if Trump wins. Heck, I'd live with the rats. Better than seeing them on TV destroy our country.

So the biggest city in the province has the most rat control treatments, and the second biggest city has the second most.

Shocker.

Yeah... wildlife in general has been ALL ABOUT since so many people are staying home. I say good, let the meek go ahead and inherit the earth. Humans have properly farked it anyway.

Um, we call them "urban beavers" up here.
 
2020-09-09 4:52:10 PM  
So are there a lot of them or are they just really big?

I thought Canada was keeping plague rats south of the border.

The PNW is a moldy, damp, rat utopia.

You give rodents food, plus remove their predators and ?...

Rick doesn't like rats either.

Do you mean a massive population of rats, or a population of massive rats? Because I don't believe the second one exists.

So the largest city (by far) in BC has the most rats. Who'd have guessed? I'll bet they have the most flys too.

Many years ago I visited Vancouver via a US Navy destroyer. We were supposed to berth at the cruise ship piers but they were full when we got there. Instead, they had us tie up at the grain export terminal some distance further inland. We had a briefing from the terminal about not getting too close to any of the railroad cars because they could be moved at any time and staying off the tracks in general. The last thing the guy told us was "Don't pet any German Shepherds when you come back from liberty because it's probably a German Shepherd sized rat".

Well, rats are smart - they enjoy nice weather and good restaurants as well.

i tough the #1 reason to move to Vancouver was the cheap heroin but i guess it could have changed.

WTF is wrong with the coyotes and owls up there? They are nature's rodent control system.

The coyotes have easier food sources, and the rats have plenty of places to hide from the owls. Mind you, you wouldn't believe what the rats have to pay in rent.

I don't think there are many rats east of the Coast mountains in BC.
Alberta's rat eradication program probably helps a bit.

Orkin's poisoning them with secondhand rat poison along with all the other natural predators.

You only see them near the water, say 1/2 a mile or so inland, here in north Vancouver (across a bridge closer to the mountains) we have fewer, I see maybe two a year. Downtown is chock full of em, always thought the government should spray them with methamphetamine, that way the junkies would eat them all. Two birds with one stoner.

They're called cats.  They work great.  Rodents hate & fear them.  No fuss.  No muss.

Fellas, it's been good to know ya

I like rats. When Covid-19 is a thing of the past, Vancouver should sell rat feed to tourists. I'll be there.

Shocker.


And both port cities to boot.
