Rats can cause a lot of damage quickly, so its important to report them immediately.

Since the 1950s, Alberta has had the distinction of being the only rat-free area. Most people have never seen one. Rats consume and spoil grain products, food and damage buildings and electrical wiring. They also carry many diseases that are a threat to human health.

Report suspected infestations of the Norway Rat. All sightings in Edmonton should be reported to the Animal Care & Control Centre by calling 311.

The Rat Control in Alberta brochure can provide you with some basic information on this pest.
