Shawn Lesflores is entering his 13th year as part of the city's pest control efforts. His crew goes where Sanitation won't, cleaning out trashed homes and burned buildings that invite rat infestation and assorted pestilential horror. Despite years of service and union membership dues, the team now fears for its future, as it's first in line for the city's upcoming budget-driven layoffs.
