Residential Mice & Rat Removal Rebate Program Pilot

The new Residential Mice & Rat Removal Rebate Program will help residents cover the cost of removing mice & rats from outside their homes. The program will give residents 50 per cent (up to a maximum of $200) toward the cost of a licenced Ontario exterminator to assist with the removal of mice & rats from the exterior of their residential property in urban areas. 

How the process works

1. Before applying, please ensure you do not have any of the following on your property:

  • Bird feeders
  • Vegetable gardens
  • Dog feces
  • Waste (any debris, rubbish, refuse, sewage or garbage arising from residential use)

2. To be eligible for a rebate, you must first complete and submit the Intake Form (below) and have the exterior of your residential property inspected by a Town Municipal Law Enforcement Officer under the provisions of the Clean Yards By-law #2018-92 and/or the Property Standards By-law #2016-27 to determine any non-conformities. The officer will suggest natural tactics to naturally remove mice or rats from your residential property.

3. If your property conforms to the prescribed standards, you may choose to hire an exterminator to assist with the removal of mice or rats from the exterior of your property.

  • The Residential Mice & Rat Removal Rebate Program is only available to residents who hire a licenced Ontario exterminator to assist with removal from the exterior of their residential property
  • If you do not choose to hire a licenced Ontario exterminator, you will not be eligible to apply for the Residential Mice & Rat Removal Rebate Program 
  • Residents must have the exterminator complete a Contractor Information Form. We recommend printing off the form in advance, so the contractor can complete the form when they are at your property. 
  • You will be required to submit receipts from your contractor (proof of payment in the form of a cancelled cheque, front and back, or by credit card or bank statement with personal information concealed) as part of the rebate process

4. Once the exterminator has completed the work you can apply for the rebate

5. Please submit the following to the Town in person (4800 South Service Rd., Beamsville) or electronically to MLE@lincoln.ca

  • Completed and signed Contractor Rebate Form (in JPG or PDF format)
  • Copies of the receipts provided by your contractor indicating the work they performed on your property (in JPG or PDF format)
  • For ease, we recommend scanning the files and saving them to your computer prior to beginning the application process

6. Town staff will review your rebate application. Please allow up to 30 days for processing. 

  • If your application is approved, a cheque will be issued
  • If you application is denied, a Town representative will provide you with the reasons for the denial
