Parks Attracting Unwanted Pests

Do-Not-Feed-Wildlife-Sign


Black rat traip in the bushes with pest management sign in foregroundThe City of Snohomish Parks Department is experiencing a rat infestation at Ferguson park. The City has contracted with Eagle Pest Eliminators to install sealed bate traps (black boxes) around the park in various locations. The traps are located mainly around the perimeter of the parking area and along the fence around the Frisbee golf area. Signs are posted in accordance with the City's Integrated Pest Management Program and permit.

 

It is important that park users do not feed the wildlife and birds in City parks. We have found piles of sunflower seeds and other bird food mixed in with the rodent population. Easy food allows the rat population to increase.

 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Public Works Services Manager Mike Johnson at 360-568-3115.
