No longer will lethal rodent control be allowed in DC homes – that is, unless you can prove that the public safety is in jeopardy. You would also have to develop a strategy to “preserve family units” of pests. If you find bats on your property in winter, you cannot disturb them until they come out of hibernation in the spring. Should there be 10 bats, you’ll need a special permit to be rid of them.
No, I am not joking. This is the new standard being drafted by HSUS in the District.
