Cities across B.C. have been reviewing the use of anticoagulant rodenticides, with more than a dozen voting to ban their use. In addition to the nature of the anticoagulant—which causes the rodent to suffer as it bleeds to death—there is the fact that predators who feed on the poisoned rodents are also dying. This has resulted in the desire to switch to less harmful methods of pest control that can achieve the goal of eliminating pests while protecting the environment and local wildlife.
District of West Vancouver
The District of West Vancouver has banned the use of anticoagulant rodenticides on all municipal property at a council meeting on September 28, 2020. The council has also petitioned the BC provincial government to ban these rodenticides province wide.
