Tehran is at a loss as how to deal with the rats  because it is not wise to make excessive  use of rodenticides, said Reza Sadeghi, an official in Tehran Municipality. “However, proper design for pedestrian pathways can help prevent people from tossing their trash in gutters which can limit the rats’ access to sources of food,” he said quoted by ISNA.  This year rat population has declined by 40% compared to the previous year (Iranian year started March 21). Use of European high quality rodenticides has also been effective in curbing rat population which is spread across Tehran.
