Pattaya launches new offensive on beachfront rats


Pattaya city workers were out again on Beach Road setting traps and laying down poison to cull the rat population.

City Councilman Banjong Banthoonprayuk and Public Health Department workers covered the beachfront from Walking Street to Central Road March 3 for this year’s effort. The most-recent publicized rat safari was held last April.

In addition to laying pesticide, the public health workers asked for cooperation from beach vendors to keep their areas clean and discard all food scraps properly to deprive the vermin their nightly feast.

Collecting of rat carcasses and a second round of poisoning was done on March 7.
