Town of Tecumseh Rat Abatement Program

Tecumseh, ON – The Town of Tecumseh has launched its Rat Abatement Program, in effort to help residents with the costs to improve rat issues on the exterior of their residential properties. While rats generally avoid contact with humans, they may enter your home to seek food, water and shelter if given the chance.

Residential property owners who hire the services of ProTrap- Wildlife Control & Pest Management may be eligible for one rebate once per calendar year. The eligible rebate is available for up to a maximum amount of 50% of $360 and must apply to the exterior property only.

To apply, you must complete the intake form here. For additional resources on how to deal with pests, click here.
