Rat Academy will educate on how to eradicate pest plague

BY THE VILLAGE SUN | Rats are running rampant around the city, but what do we really know about them?

Sure, everyone’s seen the Pizza Rat video. And, of course, there’s that Chinese restaurant place mat telling you what zodiac sign rats are compatiable with (dragons and monkeys). And, definitely, we’ve all been busy stamping our feet, rattling chairs, shouting obscenities — and maybe even hurling forks — at creeping rats to keep them at bay as we try to dine in outdoor sheds and seating. Ah, yes, just like Paris!

But New Yorkers are going to need to know a lot more than that about how to control the Ratpocalypse.

Luckily, Community Board 3, the Cooper Square Committee and the East Village Independent Merchants Association will be sponsoring a Rat Academy training by the city’s Department of Health for local residents, management companies, supers and staff, business owners and restaurateurs to learn tips to tackle the pest pandemic.

The virtual event will be held Tues., Aug. 23, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. To register, click here.
