Cleanup Nearly Complete For Lexington Home Once Infested With Rats

The cleanup at an upscale Lexington home, once infested with rats, is nearly finished.

The Fayette County Health Department took charge of cleaning the home in the Andover Hill neighborhood since the rats were discovered last fall.

Now, health department officials say their work will be finished Friday.

All trash inside the home has been removed, and no rats have been found since December.

The home is still condemned. Code enforcement officials must give their approval before someone can live there again.

    The Ratetouille Society will establish a trust for the offspring of those vermin and varmints that persihed during the cleanup. It has been reported that homes with rats have a long term effect on the amount of cheese the human inhabitants consume over a lifetime. The more rats the less cheese people eat, this caused by the fact the rats are eating the cheese. And, yes, rats do cut the cheese quite often. This cuttung action puts methane into the atmosphere that in time goes thru a very complicated process in the stratosphere and causes more violent hurricane seasons.
