Increase in number of rats in Palma

Increased number of complaints about rats.


Palma has more rats but fewer cockroaches and mosquitos, according to the city council health department.

The council is basing their information on the fact that they received 123 calls from worried residents, an increase of 30 per cent.

The increase in rats has been blamed on more empty buildings and more rubbish on the streets.
