NPMA Submits Comments; Favorable DC Rodent Control Rule Becomes Final
On March 15, 2019, the DC Department of Health (DOH) proposed rodent control regulations that require hiring PMPs for treatment in certain situations. One provision requires that if there is a health code violation at commercial properties or apartment buildings due to a rodent infestation, then the property owner/management company must hire a PMP to treat for rodents and submit proof that a PMP was hired to manage the rodent infestation. Additionally, for all property owners, including single family residences are required to hire a PMP if there are rodent burrows present in the yard. NPMA supported this rule and is pleased that it became final on June 3, 2019. Please view NPMA’s comments here.
