#2 CA could use all those discarded drug needles to make little rat palisades. Recycle, reuse, infect the rats with AIDS.

#10 Let's look at this from an ecological perspective. Generally, when you have an over-population of plants or animals in an ecosystem, the best solution is for someone to eat them.

Here, we have a surplus of both rats and homeless. The obvious answer is for them to eat each other. And while Rats vs Homeless is a natural division, there is no reason not to discourage cannibalism on either side. Like that commie guy said, if you want to make an omelette, sometimes you have to chop some meat.

#12 Rats have been delicacies about the 2nd or 3rd month of a siege. Usually after the horses. Given that most modern urban areas lack large horse populations, the timeline may be a bit accelerated.
