Pest Infestation and Rodent Harborage

In some situations, pest infestation and rodent harborage may be a violation of the Virginia Property Maintenance Code (VPMC). 

If an Investigator finds sufficient evidence to make a determination that there is an infestation per the definition of Chapter 2 of the VPMC, or rodent harborage, the responsible party for the structure will be issued a Notice of Violation directing them to abate the violation by hiring the services of a professional pest control operator and implementing property exclusionary methods to keep pests from infesting the structure.

The presence of pests within a structure that do not meet the infestation definition, or does not qualify as rodent harborage, is not regulated by the VPMC or subject to enforcement action by DCC.
