Pattaya pushed up its front on the war on rats, hitting the beachfront after conquering Bali Hai Pier.
Deputy Mayor Verawat Khakhay led 30 members of the Surveillance and Rapid Response Team, and volunteers, to spread poison and traps along Pattaya Beach, where they’ve long feasted on leftover food and garbage.
The war on rats began in February at Bali Hai Pier and this month moved to Pattaya and Jomtien beaches and, later, will advance to Koh Larn.
City officials reminded beach users and vendors to dispose of all trash properly and don’t leave food behind.
