*** PREVENTING AND ELIMINATING RATS ***

Recently there as been an increase in the rat population in Prairie Township. Please remember that rats need three (3) things to survive: Food, Water, and Shelter. By eliminating their access to these three items, we can eliminate the rat population.

If you have a rat problem, please report it to Franklin County Public Health using their Report a Rat Problem Line at (614) 525-4762. You can also report a problem to Franklin County Public Health by filling out a web form at:
