One Toledo neighborhood has a battle on their hands with rodents, and they want something to be done about it soon.
People living in the 5600 block of Malden Avenue in west Toledo say they have a major issue with rats.
"We can't even let our grandkids out in the yard because we're afraid they're going to get bit," said Nancy Traylor, a west Toledo resident.
Traylor says rats have become a nuisance for her and her neighbors. She believes the rats have come out in droves, feeding on food from one neighbor's chicken coop.
"I've seen 2 big rats which is probably the mama and the papa and then 30 or 40 little ones. They just keep multiplying more and more," said Traylor.
Health officials say rats are always a problem within city limits. The Toledo Lucas County Health Department is checking out the problem.
"We're going to look at sewers or alleys, things of that nature. Try to knock down the population there. What we do is when send our person out there, they're going to talk to people, they're going to look at their yards, they'll look at next door neighbors, things of that nature," said Eric Zgodzinski, Toledo-Lucas County Health Department.
Residents around the neighborhood say they usually see the rats in the early part of the evening, but they have seen them during the daytime as well. The health department will continue to work with the residents to find a solution.
