We are advising the public that the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service's Wildlife Services (APHIS-WS) program is making a policy decision on how to define ``urban rodent control,'' as referred to in the Act of December 22, 1987. This action is necessary to make it clearer when APHIS-WS may or may not conduct activities and enter into agreements in order to control nuisance rodent species or those rodent species that are reservoirs for zoonotic diseases.
