1976: The State Environmental Improvement Agency reported it had found significant problems with rats in Clovis, Texico, Portales, Tucumcari and two other New Mexico communities.

Neil Weber of the EIA said Tucumcari, Portales and Raton had already taken steps to reduce rat infestations.

Officials in Clovis, Texico and Albuquerque's South Valley had set out poisoned bait at sites of known infestations.

Weber said the poison bait was "relatively safe," but warned residents to keep children and pets away from the bait boxes.
