Residents Looking for Method to Deal with Rats Can Get Free Traps
(Brown County, Wis.) – Brown County officials will host a one-day “Great Rat Trap Giveaway” at the Neville Public Museum, 210 Museum Place in downtown Green Bay, on Saturday, June 30 from 10 a.m. to Noon.
Any resident can show up and get up to 3 free rat traps by presenting a valid ID showing residency in Brown County and signing a waiver. This giveaway event follows the direction of the Brown County Board of Supervisors, who previously voted to approve $5,000 in the 2018 budget to help eradicate the rat problem in the Green Bay area.
Residents will also receive educational material on how to help keep the rats away, including manufacturers’ instructions for usage of the rat traps and for animal disposal.
Here are some other tips:
- Removed food sources, water and items that provide shelter for rodents
- Dispose of garbage on a frequent and regular basis inside and outside of the home
- Thoroughly clean areas with signs of rodent activity to reduce the likelihood of exposure to germs and diseases
