Problem with rats?

Problems with rats?  
Unfortunately rats are a problem in the city.  A SCC environmentalist explained to me that the growth in their population rose significantly when the Environment Agency (water) stopped using poison in drains and sewers.  Rat problems often show themselves as the seasons change and the weather gets cooler.  The rodents come closer to humans and seek out warmer places to home like garden sheds and compost heaps.
However, there is excellent advice and links on Southampton City Council Website, including what to do if a neighbour won’t cooperate.  
The council will come out for a rat / pest problem but there is a fee.  Again all details are on the SCC website.
