There is a restaurant at the back of the clinic. Rats were multiplying and the pest control people had come to eliminate the rats. Some even come to the back of the clinic. I hid away all the dry dog food and got the rat glue. There was an electrical short-circuit to the left side of the clinic, probably due to the exposed wires from the rat gnawing the wires above the ceiling.
According to the restaurant operator behind, the mother rat avoided or did not get stuck in the glue. Just ate the food and disappeared again. Yunger rats were stuck in the glue.
Singapore has more complaints of rats and rat burrows. As stray cats have been mostly removed from the neighbourhoods, rats have thrived. More business for pest controllers nowadays.
