As if we didn't have enough problems in 2020. Now, let's add nasty rodents to the list.

WMTW is reporting a 30% increase of people making calls to local exterminators, since approximately March when the coronavirus crisis started.

A professional in the business, Nathan Jewett, spoke with the news center to explain that the pandemic has changed the feeding habits of rats.

For example, he told WMTW that the rodents who relied on the scraps and trash from restaurants which shut down moved into people's trash cans at their homes. It makes sense.

Jewett offered some tips to keep rats away. Read WMTW's article here.
