A rat explosion has hit the Australian city of Sydney.

Rats have seen a cut into their food supply due to Covid-19.

It is estimated that Sydney has around one billion rodents.

The City of Sydney’s rat catching team has caught more than double the number of rats in March than it did in February.

Rats are normally nocturnal, out foraging when cafe and restaurant rubbish bins are full after an evening of trading.

However, since the coronavirus lockdown rats have been spotted in daylight hours around peoples’ homes.

One Sydney woman reported her pet cat had killed three rats, and another reported two in her backyard.

The combination of less available food combined with recent wet weather had encouraged rats to seek food, and possibly shelter, in suburban homes.

That’s bad! And crazy! But quite interesting that with the lockdown the rodents going out at day because there’s less dangers.
