Want to help stop this problem? You can: first, join others and Take the Pledge to not use rodenticides around your home and property; then, learn about more effective ways to manage rodent problems and live poison-free; encourage others to follow your lead; finally, donate if you can and help us support the study and conservation of wildlife in and around the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area.
Seal up entry points into the house, attic, garage, and crawl spaces. Use 1/4 inch wire, steel wool, foam, weather stripping, and metal sheeting to close up holes.
Trim or remove thick vegetation where rodents nest.
Limit attractants such as pet food left outdoors, bird feeders, easily accessible fruit trees, and trash that is not properly sealed.
Share information with others about how rodent poisons can kill our local wildlife and our pets, as poisons move through the food chain.
