HCA no longer uses SGAR rodenticide at our properties

Many Arlington residents signed a petition asking HCA to stop using SGARs (Second Generation Anticoagulant Rodenticide). These poisons not only kill rats and mice, but can cause great harm or death to other animals up the food chain, such as the owls and eagles who make Arlington their home. This is an issue that many cities and towns in MA and across the globe are now addressing.

If you notice any bait stations on our property, they are not dangerous anymore. As of late March 2023, all SGARs were removed from HCA properties. Our current pest control firm, Secured Environments, who has a specialty in environmentally sound strategies. Secured Environments, provides us with bait stations that use a form of vitamin D which will not harm animals up the food chain. There will be no more SGAR bait on any HCA property.

Thanks to the many caring residents who have contacted us about this issue.
