Information from the Waltham Health Department:

The City of Waltham Board of Health will work together with residents, business owners, and other City Departments to promote a better understanding of rat/rodent behavior and how to minimize their presence and impact on the community. Our inspectors are committed to rodent control and providing educational information to the public. By working together we can keep our neighborhoods clean and healthy. There's no way around it! To send the rats packing we all have to work together.
