The rodent population in Ferndale is something that we take very seriously and must address as a community. The rodents need three things to flourish: a place to live, food, and water. This is why code enforcement is so important. If we eliminate these three things, we will make significant progress in our fight against rodents.

The City isn't responsible for exterminating rats from your property, but we will be happy to visit you and help develop a plan for keeping rodents out of your yard. Rodent control is a community issue, so we encourage you to share the information with as many of your neighbors as possible.
