When does the municipality combat vermin?
We combat vermin only if it:
- forms a hazard to the health of our residents and is
- living in the public space (that's to say not on the property of a resident).
We don’t combat rats on your own property. Still we would like for you to report this nuisance (see preface), so that we can keep an eye on the situation. If you report a nuisance of rats, a KAD (Kennis- Adviescentrum Dierplagen) employee will visit you at home to provide professional prevention and control advice.
If we don’t combat the vermin, you can take care of it yourself. You can find an overview of professional companies that combat vermin on:

Bats or stone marten can also cause nuisance in and around your home. However, they are legally protected species. That is why it is important that you do not catch or kill them yourself. Report nuisance via our telephone number 14040, an expert will view the situation and provide customized advice.
