2018 Rabies Bait Program

In an assault on rabies, the Allegheny County Health Department and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Wildlife Services will be placing more than 300,000 baits throughout Allegheny, Beaver and Washington counties through Aug. 17.

The fishmeal-scented bait blocks are designed to attract raccoons and are meant to inoculate them with a rabies vaccine.

The baits will be placed in raccoon habitats to reduce chance of human exposure to the vaccine. The public is asked to keep pets on a leash, indoors or confined to their property as much as possible. While the bait is not harmful to pets, health officials urge animals to stay away so that the bait will be consumed only by raccoons.

Anyone who makes contact with the bait should wash the exposed skin with soap and water. If a rash should appear, contact your health-care provider immediately.
