Rodent Extermination and Seattle’s Building Code

Rodent Extermination and Bellevue’s Building Code in Bellevue, WA 

On January 1, 2017 Bellevue officially updated the Building Code. This update requires all demolition projects to complete a rat extermination program in order to obtain a demolition permit from the city of Bellevue. Without a defined plan of action for rat abatement, demolition projects will be denied permits.

Rodent Control and Bellevue Building Permits

Bellevue’s rodent population shows no signs of stopping, and the city has taken several steps to eradicate rats and mice from existing buildings. The updated Building Code is just one of those steps, but it’s crucial. If rats aren’t properly exterminated before a building is demolished, the rodents simply move to the next building, continuing to grow and expand their already extensive numbers. If you’re building or developing in Bellevue, the updated Building Code is something you must pay attention to, and all of the paperwork has to be filed correctly and on time–or you risk your entire project!

Do the New Rodent Extermination Guidelines Apply to My Project?

If you applied for a demolition permit before January 2017, the Building Code update does not apply to you. But any projects since that date must follow stringent rat removal requirements before demolition can begin. The rat abatement, or rat extermination, must take place at least 15 days before scheduled demolition. If you don’t have any rats present in the building (very rare in Bellevue, these days) you must get a professional and licensed pest control company to provide proof that there are no rodents in the building before you can begin the project.
