For decades, setting traps and deploying poison did the trick when it came to getting rid of rats. But after years of city life, some of the rodents have begun to genetically mutate, developing a resistance to poison and a gift for outsmarting traps.

On this episode of ‘PEST KINGDOM,’ VICE Japan sat down with a handful of experts studying super rats to hear exactly how the rodents got so strong, and find out what—if anything—can be done to get them under control.
