Thursday, October 11, 2018 CodeRED Community Alert information:

The Town is taking proactive steps to control the rodent issue.  In response to resident concerns and minimal evidence of rodent activity, the Town of Reading hired an independent pest control company to implement an integrated pest management program at Washington Park beginning Monday, October 15.

Integrated pest management (IPM) uses environmentally sound ways to keep pests from invading your home, damaging your plants, or annoying you. Successful IPM combines several methods to prevent and manage pest problems without harming you, your family, or the environment.

The Town will monitor the site regularly for a year, as well as continue to monitor complaints of rodent activity. It’s important for residents to know that Reading is not unique in seeing an increase in the rodent population this year, as it is a problem throughout the region.
