Rodent Control

FREE Rodent Trapping Program

We are now offering residents the opportunity to have one rodent control trap placed on their property for up to 3 months, by the city's contractor, Modern Pest Services. These traps DO NOT use pesticide and the rodents are collected inside the trap. When the trap is full or needs service the trap wirelessly notifies Modern Pest Services and THEY empty the trap. All of the data collected by the traps will be used to locate rodent harborages and educate residents. 

For more information about the actual trap click here.

There are 25 traps for distribution. One trap will be installed per property (unless Modern Pest determines you need more). Traps will be removed after 3 months. Traps that haven't caught any rodents will be removed after 14 days.
