Rats

If you have 2 rats (a breeding pair), then in one year you'll have roughly 15,000 rats.  That explains a lot.


The war on rats has taken an interesting turn.  We might just win.  It seems some smart people in Arizona have come up with a product, resembling a pink milkshake, that makes rats sterile.  They started with mice.  Then wild dogs.  And finally rats.

The company is named SenesTech.  I learned about this from The Guardian's Audio Long Reads podcast.  If you prefer to read, then here's the article from The Guardian.
