The HOOT Group is working to reduce the rodent population in Uhills using non-toxic methods. We want our community management to replace the current rat poison stations with enclosed snap traps and barn owl nesting boxes. Additionally, we request that residents stop using rodenticides of any kind.
The HOOT group believes that we should use methods that have maximum impact on reducing the rat population with minimal negative impact on the environment. The native barn owl is an effective predator for rats and mice and since their habitat has been reduced by development, we want to encourage population growth.
Take the Pledge
Great news! We are excited to announce an important step in moving UHills toward poison free rodent control.
