  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Delaware'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 Delaware'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 Sussex 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 Milford animal control for wildlife issues.

Milford Wildlife Removal Tip: What if you are bitten by a rat?

A rat will chomp down hard to force the upper two teeth down between the two long ones at the bottom hence getting a better grip to inflict a jagged uneven wound and injecting saliva and bacteria in this area. That is how a rat will react in self-defence hence the resultant of a bite from one. The rat will bite you if you startle the creature and feel cornered with no escape route.

Rats are known to be able to carry around seventy diseases that re known, some of which can be transmitted to human beings through a bite; for instance leptospirosis plus rat bite temperature. However, rats cannot transmit rabies infection to human beings and other animals; this is only but just a misconception. The animals that can be a resource of rabies include dogs, raccoons, skunks, foxes coyotes and with bats being frequent transmitters to humans. Rat bites also increase chance of humans to contract tetanus.

How to treat a rat bite

1. First, you will need to have the following; soap, water, hydrogen peroxide, gauze, gauze tape and triple antibiotic or bactoderm cream.
2. If the wound is on the finger or hand, remove all jewels and any other jewellery before the bite swells up the area and the ornaments cut off the flow.
3. Rat bites usually cause bleeding. Ensure that you stop the bleeding and if the bleeding is persistent, probably because the bite is deep, use a part of gauze and any previous absorbent material at your disposal. This material should be sterilized; otherwise it may infect the wound even further.
4. Once the bleeding flow stops, using soap and water, thoroughly clean the wound. Make sure that you clean the inside of the injury and not o forget the outside, around the infected area.
5. Pour a minimum amount of hydrogen-peroxide H2O2 and rubbing alcohol hooked on the wound, just enough to disinfect the bite. This will eliminate several bacteria or disease causing agent that may have contaminated the wound during the bite or after.
6. Apply the triple antibiotic (TA) and (BC) bactoderm cream to the wound. This will speed up the healing process of the wound.
7. Cover the cut with a hygienic and dry dressing. You may use gauze and secure with the gaze tape, a self adhesive bandage or even a band aid.
8. Replace the dressing at least once in a day and each time you do so before dressing the wound, reapply the antibiotic until the injury heals.


Apply this first aid as soon as possible.
If the bleeding persists for so long and won't, seek medical help.
A wound taking too long to heal or if the infection continues to spread, better see a doctor; it may be life-threatening.
