Rodents

There is no government organized rodent control program in St. John’s or in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. The responsibility for rodent control lies with the owner and/or the occupant of the land, dwelling or business.

The City performs pest control services on all parks, playgrounds, sports facilities, waterways and public right-of-ways. Our ongoing programs are used to combat an infestation of rats, mice, shrews, etc. If you suspect there is a rodent problem on City owned land, please call Access St. John's at 311 or (709) 576-CITY (2489) to arrange for an inspection.

We do not provide this service or advice on private property. If you are experiencing a problem with rodents on your own private property please call a private pest control company. 

If you are experiencing a problem with rodent control from an adjoining neighbour please call Access St. John's at 311 or (709) 576-CITY (2489) to report your concern.
