Rat Poison Available In Abbotsford Friday

When the harvest is over and the weather grows cooler, that’s when rats and mice begin their stealthy invasion of farm and city buildings. There, all winter long, they expect to receive free food and shelter.

Abbotsford this year is waging a war on rats and mice and the village dump and other places where rats congregate will be treated with poison to reduce the population of these rodents. Local people are warned to keep their pets at home to avoid having them contact the poison used.

Village Marshal Louis Mauritz will be at the village hall Friday afternoon to dispense rat poison to anyone who may want to use it on his own premises, to help in this effort to reduce the number of rats and mice which will be moving indoors for the cold winter months.
