  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Georgia'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 Georgia'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 Fannin 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 Blue Ridge animal control for wildlife issues.

Blue Ridge Wildlife Removal Tip: Can rats swim? Do they drown?

This is a common question that I have heard from various people now. The fact that you wake up to find a dirty looking and scaring animal in your bowl makes you wonder, do they even swim? Or they will just drown on themselves. Or maybe you have a pet rat which just fell into water. Wait to see their reaction!! The question is, will they be able to swim? Well, rats for decades have been known to be survivors especially the tropical rats which by the way fish! Therefore, and fortunately, rats do swim.

What you never knew

These small animals, with their small bodies have been known to swim for and up-to half a mile. Isn’t that impressive for their size? However, even if they are able to make a push against the tides, they cannot be able to sustain themselves afloat for long. Their energy is very limited, again, because of their size.

Do they like swimming?

This is a trick question. There is no definite answer. However, what we can confirm is the fact that some rats absolutely love being in water. If you allow them, they could spend countless hours just playing in the water. Some other rats really hate water. They will do everything in their power just to stay away from the vast horrifying water. So how do you find out? Simple, just put your rat close to a water body and watch its reactions.

What you need to keep in mind

There are some activities that people do that keep the rats in due stress. This in fact will affect their psychological behavior. Here are some of the things that you need to keep in mind;

• Never force your rat to go inside water. If it doesn't want to leave it alone.
• Never keep your rat near a large body of water without supervision.
• When the rats are swimming, always supervise them.
• The water they are swimming in shouldn't be too cold or too hot.

These are some of the things that you should be looking into when it comes to the behavior of the rats when swimming.

Rats can swim and also if not under close supervision from the owner, they can drown. Some of the rat owners have claim that their rats can swim underwater. But even so, if your rat doesn’t feel like swimming, just leave it alone.
