According to an article in the Detroit Free Press, rats are an increasing concern in metro Detroit, where several pest control firms say they have seen a significant rise in rat calls.

Troy-based Rose Pest Solutions has logged a 36% upswing in rat calls, a trend largely driven by residential calls in Detroit and suburbs such as Grosse Pointe Farms, Roseville, Warren, St. Clair Shores, Royal Oak and Sterling Heights. And Lake Orion-based A & D Animal Control, which services Oakland County, had about a dozen rat calls this summer, compared with less than a handful in some other years, said Al Krier, owner for 37 years.

The reasons are unclear, but experts suggest several culprits: abandoned properties; a push to demolish empty buildings; even a wetter-than-normal summer, leading to thicker vegetation and more hiding spaces for rodents.\
