Vernon and Kelowna have made the list of BC’s rattiest cities.
The pest control company Orkin has Kelowna at number 6, Vernon in 18th, and Kamloops in 20th on this year’s second annual top 20.
Vernon is down four sports from last year.
Vancouver leads the way, followed by Victoria, Burnaby and Richmond.
“Cities are ranked by the number of rodent (rat and mice) treatments the company performed from January 1, 2017 through December 31, 2017. This ranking includes both residential and commercial treatments,” says a release from Orkin.
Orkin’s rodent prevention tips include eliminating any moisture sources around your home, trimming trees and landscape to eliminate hiding spots, and sealing any cracks or holes in your foundation.
