    Oregon’s housing market is one of the hottest in the country, with more than 100 people moving to Portland alone each day. While overall this is a net-positive, more people are moving here than there are places for them to live.

    To compound matters, our local government hasn’t modernized with the changing times, and instead continues to create layers of bureaucracy that slow down the development of more housing for citizens in all income brackets.

    We support the creation of more housing for all income levels.

    Three powerful landlord groups have joined to run what they say must be an all-out multimillion-dollar campaign to stop the Portland City Council and the Oregon Legislature from enacting "radical" tenant protections they say would jeopardize their livelihoods.

    That the gulf between landlords' desires and policymakers' plans is so wide reflects the tensions between tens of thousands of struggling renters around Oregon and the relatively few landlords that control their housing.

    The landlord industry groups, which have banded together under the name More Housing Now!, laid out their intended strategy in a letter and four-page brochure aimed at getting participants onboard that was obtained by The Oregonian/OregonLive. The materials, which are unusual because of their unflinching frankness, call out by name Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler and Commissioner Chloe Eudaly as the industry's primary foes.

    Do Rat Deterrents Really Work?

    Posted by EarthKind on April 15th, 2017

    If you have a rodent infestation in your home, shed or barn, you are likely scrambling for a way to control the problem. You could get a cat, but there is no guarantee that the cat would actually be a mouser, and you may not want to expose a household pet to the risks that come with chasing mice and rats.

    Another option would be to set traps or put out poison, but that is not always ideal because of safety issues.

    A rat deterrent is another option, but before you spend your hard-earned money, you likely want some confidence that these products do, in fact, work as advertised. After all, anyone can say a product will repel rats, but the proof is in the research.

    Rat Deterrent Options

    When it comes to repelling rats, you have two basic options. One option is a sound-based rat deterrent. These products, which require electricity or a battery to run, work by emitting a sound that is supposedly inaudible to humans and pets but drives the rats away.

    Because the sound is not audible, you will not know if this product stops working. Also, it requires a source of energy, and some people have indicated they can hear the sound.

    The best, most effective option is a scent-based deterrent. Certain plant-based scents, such as peppermint or balsam fir, are offensive to rats. A product containing these plants and oils in the right combination is an effective and safe way to keep rats from returning.

    The Best Plant-Based Rat Deterrent

    Fresh Cab Rodent Repellent is an example of a plant-based rat deterrent that really works. This product is 98% plant-based and contains a powerful combination of ingredients that are proven to repel rats and other rodents. In fact, in rigorous testing, the product has shown to be over 88% effective at keeping rats out – more than most competitors can claim.
