“Does this actually work for residential pest control?”

“Dear PoPville,

We’ve noticed an uptick in rats around our Shaw neighborhood lately (from bad to worse). The city has come out a few times, but whatever they’re doing, which I think is spraying some kind of poison, hasn’t made it better. I’m thinking about hiring a company to put down professional grade bait traps. Does this actually work for residential pest control? I’ve seen the black bait boxes all over the place but am not sure if they help at all, or if I would just be throwing money away. I’m hoping some of your readers may have found success clearing these suckers out and can share their advice!”
