Orkin Canada's Third Annual List of Rattiest Cities in BC Released

Three-Peat for Rats in Vancouver

MISSISSAUGA, ON , April 9, 2019 /CNW/ - Five cities in British Columbia have now established themselves as provincial leaders when it comes to rodent treatments. For the third successive year, no city was able to dislodge the current top five from the rattiest cities list.

The findings by Orkin Canada are based on the number of commercial and residential rodent (rats and mice) treatments carried out by the country's largest pest control provider. 

The top five rattiest cities in British Columbia in 2018:

  1. Vancouver
  2. Victoria
  3. Burnaby
  4. Richmond
  5. Surrey

Orkin Canada is reminding homeowners that rodents need only a small hole to gain entry into a property, and vermin can transmit a number of serious diseases. They are also very active at this time of year.  Homes with small holes or cracks in perimeter walls are most at risk.
