If you are having issues with rodent control, you can obtain rodent abatement services through the Bureau of Rodent Control by contacting our office. Crews are dispatched to investigate every reported sighting and can provide guidance on rat-proofing private property. Many reported rodent problems are highly preventable. In addition to residents containing their garbage, dog owners need to clean up after their pets. This waste attracts rats, annd owners should make sure waste materials are disposed of in sealed containers.
The Department of Streets and Sanitation needs the cooperation of businesses and residents to keep alleys rat free. You can help by making sure your trash is properly contained. Exposed garbage is the primary reason rodents proliferate. When garbage carts are securely closed, rodents are cut off from their food supply and will subsequently eat the poison that the Bureau of Rodent Control places in rat burrows.
If you see a rat or notice conditions that may contribute to rodent activity, please contact our office.
