NYC Chinatown Rats Move Into Man’s Auto Engine Compartment

Army of Rats
Chinatown Rats

No one likes a rat but unfortunately, they’re part of the landscape in cities from coast to coast. These busy rodents spend a good portion of their time on the lookout for food, water, and a warm and cozy place to call home.

One place you may think is safe from inquisitive rodents is under the hood of your car. Think again. This is the perfect spot to make a nest. They’re up off the ground, can’t get rained on, and have all sorts of nooks and crannies around the engine, transmission and battery to snuggle down.

They also like to chew and what better place to have a smorgasbord of wires to nibble on than under the hood of your vehicle. Needless to say, chewing through the wires is going to cause problems.

Keeping up with NYC rat control is ongoing with one of the newest techniques geared towards birth control to help keep the population within reason. This is to everyone’s benefit as rats carry a list of bacteria and diseases including E.coli,, tuberculosis, salmonella and the plague.

To keep your home and surrounding area free of rodents on patrol, you’ll need the help of professional NYC rat control specialists. This is where our technicians at Stern Environmental Group are your first line of defense.
