Budapest city council will today consider a proposal to devote more than Ft 1.6 billion in 2018-22 to controlling the rat population in Budapest.

As part of the proposal, a drive to rid eight social care homes in Budapest of cockroaches will move ahead.

More than Ft 243 million was spent on exterminating mosquitoes, cockroaches and rats during 2012-17.

Attila Szécsi, president of the Budapest Condominiums Representatives Association, told Inforádió that while rats were not often seem in the downtown area previously, this is no longer a rare event.
