In light of recent rodent problems reported in the City of Medicine Hat, the City of Swift Current Department of Infrastructure and Operations would like to outline its current and ongoing rodent control program.
In 2009, the City of Swift Current developed a maintenance plan with the assistance of Saskatchewan Provincial Pest Control Officers. Weekly baiting at the East Landfill has been in effect since the plan was developed, and constant monitoring takes place, both during the day and at night, to search for evidence of rodents.
To date, there has been no evidence of rodents observed, and City monitoring has been supplemented by monitoring provided by Saskatchewan Provincial Pest Control Officers.
As such, we are fully confident that the plan we developed has been working, and our monitoring protocol will ensure that the plan continues to work in the future.
