Pest and Weed Control

Pest Control Officer


The R.M. of Estevan No.5 contributes annually to the ADD Board Rat Control Program, who employs the services of a Pest Control Officer to serve this and other municipalities. The Pest Control Officer makes visits to locations throughout the R.M. in the spring and fall. If council determines that extra service calls are required, the pest control officer will be contracted out to make additional stops in the fall. Each ratepayer is allowed and allotment of 20 free bags of rat poison each year. There is also rat poison available for sale at the R.M Office for ratepayers requiring additional supplies. If you are aware of a rat problem, please notify the municipal office as soon as possible.
