To the editor:
The rat infestation in the community of Dorr is a serious problem. It’s a health hazard not to mention a nuisance to our properties/belongings.
The people of Dorr have spoken and want to be heard. We need Dorr Township to take action and resolve this matter. We are not here to point fingers or blame anyone in particular. The community has reason to believe the township supervisor is aware of the issue, but has yet to do anything about it.
There have been many complaints about pest control failing to succeed and lots of damage to property without anything coming to resolution. My fiancee and I have set traps and poison in our shed after they ruined our insulation amongst other items. My neighbor has three bait boxes that were filled three months ago.
Terminex was at her house Oct. 24 and the bait boxes were empty in just three months. The Terminex employee said he has never seen anything like it. Several neighbors right here next to the township say they have witnessed several, including the township supervisor.
It is time for a change. We need answers and we need them fast. Winter is coming, which will lead the pesky rats migrate to warmer places, our homes and sheds.
Please, for the love of our community take immediate action to resolve this issue. Thus far, 49 have signed a petition on change.org and the Dorr Community Page. Let’s get to 100! At 100 signatures, this petition is more likely to be featured in recommendations!
