At a meeting between Mayor Menetre and the Covington City Council Finance Committee, it was decided to launch a rat campaign. This campaign costs around $ 350 (red squill, ground beef, etc.). The DDT and 1080 are provided by the state. This rat control program is carried out under the supervision of the local health unit. On March 6th, 7th and 8th, Covington City commercial buildings will be dusted with DDT (10%) and the new venom (1080) will also be introduced into these commercial buildings. The purpose of DDT dusting is to kill the fleas and insects. The 1080 is only placed in the industrial park, the liquid poison is placed in small paper cups. It is very deadly to any animal life – rats, cats, dogs, or humans. All stores should make sure there are no cats around while the 1080 poison is off. There is no danger from DDT.
