Rodent Control

Rodents are a constant part of the environment, but can become a health hazard when they begin to invade our homes.


Some sanitary measures that may help are:
  • Properly store garbage and rubbish
  • Avoid accumulating materials that are stored directly on the ground
  • Clean any enclosed littered areas that may attract rodents
Rodent-proof your home by preventing entry of rodents through any outer openings and maintaining your outside environment by keeping your yard mowed and free from any harborage areas.


For more information and tips, contact Public Health at (903) 457-3160.

Complaints regarding property maintenance standards that may be contributing factors to rodent harborage may be addressed by Code Enforcement.
