Comment: ‘We Are Still Overrun With Rats’

Baltimore-area Patch readers speak their minds.

This past week, Patch readers took to the comment steams and Facebook to share their thoughts on rats, homicide victims and more. Here’s what your neighbors are saying:

Dundalk Patch
“Really? What areas do they see improvement in? I know for a fact that it's not West Inverness! We are still [overrun] with rats!! I have spent countless hours in my yard trying to make it look good, only to have it totally destroyed by the rats. It doesn't help that people around you don't care. There are people that won't buy the much needed trash cans, those with old junk cars in the yards and those that just don't clean up their yards at all! [And] the biggest offenders are these stupid rentals that the landlords aren't held responsible for! So,really? Disgusted in West Inverness!” – Rosie1925 on County Announces Rat Eradication Success

Pikesville Patch
“About time you put some non-uglies on this page of criminals.” – Neil Shocket via Facebook on Baltimore Metro Rogues Gallery: Jan. 26-Feb. 1

Owings Mills-Reisterstown Patch
“Katie was a great person with a big happy personality. My heart goes out to her family. I hope he spends the rest of his sorry life waiting for the electric chair!” – Laura Cowman via Facebook on UPDATE: Police Arrest Owings Mills Homicide Suspect

Parkville-Overlea Patch
“I call bull. Hawthorne is still inundated with rats. We have paid for two private treatments in addition to the county ones and they are still all over the place. If only my neighbors would lid their trashcans (as per BC law) and clean up after their dogs, there would be no food source and less of a problem. It's a rat problem as much as it is a people problem.” – Rachel May Resch via Facebook on County Announces Rat Eradication Success

Towson Patch
“I saw the picture and thought it was the weekly O'Malley blog!” – M. Sullivan on County Announces Rat Eradication
