West U Tops the List for ‘Rattiest’ Neighborhood in Houston

October 13, 2011

The City of West U is at the top of the list for the most “rattiest” neighborhood in Houston.

Rodent control company, d-Con, released the results of a nationwide survey today that determined which neighborhoods in Houston, Detroit, Nashville, Baltimore and Charlotte were believed to be the “rattiest.”

About 1,000 residents were polled about the frequency of rodent sightings in their homes and neighborhoods and West U came out on top along with Uptown/Galleria and The Heights.

“The survey demonstrates which neighborhoods residents deemed the ‘rattiest’ and what they would do if they saw a rodent in their home,” d-CON Senior Brand Manager Christine van den Broeck said.

According to the survey, 50 percent of participants said they would deploy a mouse trap or bait if they saw a rodent in their home and 23 percent “would let out a good scream.”

Forty-six percent of Houston residents said they have encountered a mouse or rat in their home at least once.

The five cities included in the survey were chosen based on results of the 2009 d-CON Rodent Risk Report.
