PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Pest control experts say this is the time of year when dwindling food sources outside send rats into homes, and sudden rains may force sewer rats up the pipes into toilets.

Multnomah County Vector Control says it receives 10-to-15 calls a year from people in Portland who find rats in their toilets, dead or alive.

Manager Chris Wirth told The Oregonian (https://bit.ly/1pgyl8n ) it’s usually a ground level or basement toilet and it’s usually a young rat because alpha male rats are too large to fit through all the pipes.
