Non-Profit Offers Natural Way to Get Rid of Rodents
Planned PEThood in the news! From WSB-TV, Carl Willis, 11:44 p.m. Tuesday, July 12, 2017.
GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - Snakes, rats and other wild animals are causing concern for homeowners lately. But a Gwinnett County nonprofit group says they have the solution - stray cats.
In the span of a week, Channel 2 Action News has received calls about two separate incidents where residents said their apartments and condos were being invaded by rats.
"It's not safe for the kids to take the trash out," Leandea Smith told Channel 2’s Carl Willis while reporting on the problems at her apartment complex.
It’s an unsettling problem that doesn't have to exist according to those at Lawrenceville's Planned PEThood.
"It's a very easy fix in reality," Planned PEThood volunteer Amy Davenport told Willis.
The organization contacted Willis offering a natural solution: free, organic rodent control by way of starting a controlled feral cat colony.
