Rat Education Materials

As a way to help individuals, community groups, businesses and neighborhood associations assist in educating about rat and rodent control and prevention we have created some easy to use tools.  We have materials to use with your social media accounts, text for newsletters or emails and posters and brochures.  


Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for community members to educate each other about rat prevention and control.


No permission is needed to use these but we would love to hear where and how you use them to track our educational outreach efforts.  Email Lindsay Selser to let the City know how the rat control and prevention messages are getting out in our community.


How to use the Rat Education Materials:

Download the material you are interested in using and then print the files, or paste them into your documents or publications.  Please feel free to share these on your website or blogs as well.  


The newsletter text document includes various pre-drafted newsletter articles, in varying lengths, regarding the topic of rat control and prevention. Simply copy and paste the text into your newsletter, website, blog, email etc.  Feel free to edit the text to fit your publication or needs.


For the Social Media graphics, download the graphic/image and then use that image to create a social media post.  The text that can accompany each image is in the document labeled Facebook text, Twitter text etc.  You can simply upload the image and then copy and paste the accompanying text into the post.
