Arlington Community Education


Rat poisons kill lots of other animals such as owls, hawks, eagles, foxes, other wildlife, and even our pets. Predators are great killers of rats though, so if you want the rats dead but not the animals that kill them, what are your options? Learn about some of the more popular and effective solutions, from eliminating what attracts rats to snap traps in bait boxes, electric zappers, dry ice, and more. Learn how to set up these systems in a way that is safe for you, your family, and the animals around us.

Led by: Jeremy Marin, an avid gardener and nature lover, but not a fan of rats.  He's helped guide people through the many options available to make properties less attractive to rats, and how to kill them.

Location Arlington High School, Mass. Ave.
