Many of California's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving California's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local San Diego county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Alpine animal control for wildlife issues.

Alpine Wildlife Removal Tip: What Are Some Humane Ways To Kill A Rat?

There is a wide range of traps and poisons that people think of using to get rid of rat infestation. But these are inhumane ways to kills rats, and you may end up giving them very painful and slow death. Experts never ever recommend such terrible procedures to get rid of rat infestation. It is good to look for some humane methods to achieve success in rat removal.

Here are few humane methods to kill a rat that is destroying your house:

Live traps:

The live traps are useful for people who are not in favor of killing rats. Also, these traps are commonly used in areas where it is illegal to kill or trap rats. So, even if these rodents are destroying your property; you cannot think of killing them. Otherwise, you may have to pay a huge fine. Note that, humaneness of a live trap completely depends upon how you use it and how well you care for the rat until it is relocated. Once the rat is trapped inside, it is important to care for its basic requirements of food and water so that you can save it from starvation. At the same time, you also need to protect it from cold, dehydration and stress, etc. Experts say that live traps are designed to avoid painful injuries to the rats, but before you fix them in your premises, it is good to test them so that they will not end up pressing limps or tail of the rodent.

If you have set a live trap in your premises, prefer to check it every morning so that if a rodent is trapped inside, it can be relocated as soon as possible while avoiding starvation. It is not good to leave animals inside to have a slow and painful death. If you are not able to find a suitable place for the relocation of rats, you can also think of releasing them at the nearest veterinary clinic because these professionals know right techniques to handle trapped rats.

Snap traps:

Another popular technique to deal with rat infestation is a snap trap. These traps are easily available in a variety of size ranges, so you can pick any as per your need. It is important to use a well-designed and reliable trap that triggers only when the animal head is completely inside. Experts recommend using snap traps when you want to give a quick death to the animals that are not suitable for premises. While placing your bait in the snap trap, make sure that it is precisely fixed within the marked area. Clean rest of the trap so that rodent doesn't get distracted. Once the rat gets inside, the trap will be suddenly closed, and the rodent gets instant death. If you want to be successful in your rat trapping struggle, we advise you to use right bait to attract them. Also, it is important to put traps in locations where rats keep on visiting too often.
