The Council continues to employ a full-time Rodent Operative
under the Scheme inaugurated with the Ministry of Agriculture
and Fisheries. Whilst there was no evidence of major infestations
in the town, the Rodent Operative paid many calls to deal with 149
minor infestations at private and business premises in the town.
A 10% test-baiting of sewer manholes was carried out and the
final result showed that 44% of the manholes tested gave complete
takes. Under these circumstances the local authority made arrangements
for the initial treatment of sewers to be carried out in the
financial year 1948/49.
