New York City's battle against rats continues, this time with dry ice

Most likely familiar only to WKBW fans of a certain age.

Mayor Offers $32 Million Plan to Ice Some Rats. Hopefully.  (The New York Times, 7/13/2017)
Rats are a common complaint among New Yorkers, who logged more than 17,200 sightings via the 311 system last year, up from 12,600 in 2014, the mayor’s first year in office. Mr. de Blasio, who is running for re-election, said he had seen the vermin running around the public park outside Gracie Mansion. More than 10,000 complaints have come in so far this year.

The dry ice method of control.
