15-May-2019 – According to new data, Vancouver is yet again the most rodent-infested city in British Columbia. This is the third consecutive time that the city has managed to bag the top rank. After Vancouver, Victoria comes second, followed by Burnaby, Richmond, and Surrey, all of which maintained their top five positions, similar to the rankings from last year.
Vancouver had a string of incidents earlier this year regarding rodent problems. One such incident was when a dead rodent was found in a bowl of clam chowder in a restaurant, which is now closed. This shows that residential homes, as well as commercial spaces, can be sites for rodent infestation, especially when there is a lack of maintenance. Toronto follows closely in 2nd place, so make sure to call Pestend if you see any signs of rodents.
