Mayor Adams 2 – Resident Perspective

As a resident of New York City, you are likely aware of the growing rat problem. Rats can be seen scurrying around in the streets and subways, and they are known to carry diseases that can be harmful to humans.


This week (Nov. 18th 2022) , Mayor Adams signed into law new bills that aim to address the rat population issue. District Rodent Control is aligned with Rat Mitigation Zones, which will work with property owners to eradicate rats from their buildings.


The second bill increases fines for property owners who do not properly maintain their properties and allow rats to thrive.

While these new laws are a step in the right direction, they alone will not be enough to solve the rat problem. Property owners must take responsibility for keeping their buildings clean and free of rats, and residents must be vigilant in reporting any signs of rat activity. With everyone working together, we can make New York City a cleaner and healthier place to live.No one wants to deal with pests, but unfortunately they are a fact of life for many people. Whether you have an infestation of rats or mice in your home or business, it can be difficult to get rid of them and keep them from coming back.


There are many different ways to deal with pests, depending on the type of pest and the severity of the infestation. In some cases you can take care of the problem yourself using home remedies or store-bought products; in other cases you may need to call in a professional exterminator.


Whatever approach you take, it is important to act quickly before the problem gets out of hand. Pests can not only be a nuisance but also a health hazard, so it is important to take steps to get rid of them as soon as possible.No one wants to deal with pests, but unfortunately they are a fact of life for many people. Whether you have an infestation of rats or mice, ants in your kitchen, or spiders in your basement, it can be difficult to get rid of them and keep them from coming back.


The new laws from Mayor Adams are a positive step forward in the fight against rats, but it is ultimately up to all of us to take preventative measures and keep our properties clean. With everyone working together, we can make New York City safer and healthier for everyone. Let’s do our part to build a cleaner, rodent-free city!


Thank you Mayor Adams for taking the initiative to address this growing problem. We look forward to seeing the positive impact of your efforts. Together we can make NYC a rat-free haven!
