Contact and File a Complaint
County residents may call in complaints or request information using the Rat Attack telephone number, 410-887-RATS, or they may fill out the online complaint form.
Online Complaint Form
If using the online complaint form, please give as much specific information as possible regarding where the rats, rat burrows or rat runs have been seen, and how you may be contacted for more information. Please fill out the online form only if you have seen rats in a specific location. Please do not file a general complaint for an entire neighborhood.
What Happens Next
Your complaint information will be given to the appropriate area sanitarian/inspector for investigation. The County will keep a record of your complaint in a database and use it to generate statistics, which help to pinpoint neighborhoods with significant rodent control problems. If you want to know the results of the investigation, you must provide your telephone number.
