NOTICE: Rats have been found in the City of Litchfield Park. Rats are very destructive, gnawing through wiring and destroying citrus. The solution lies with residents who must maintain clean yards (especially keep trees free of fruit and pick up dropped fruit and debris on their property). Rats prefer to stay within 200 to 300 yards and generally stay right in a residential backyard.

Eradication of rats is a team effort and requires relentless effort of the whole neighborhood. The City is working with Maricopa County and professional trappers to identify resources for residents in addressing this issue. Further information can be found on the Maricopa County website (see the link below).
