I love the Tri-Cities and it makes me so mad when teenagers complain and say they can't wait to move to Portland or Seattle. Fine, go blow your money on concerts and hipster cafes, but remember that Seattle has RATS!

A recent report revealed Seattle is the No. 7 city in the country for rat infestations. An estimated 28,000+ homes have a significant problem.

Why? New neighborhoods build ponds for landscaping, which are breeding grounds for rats. And redevelopment in the urban areas are pushing the rats elsewhere. When houses are torn down, the rats are still there and just go next door.
