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 Clayton 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 Forest Park animal control for wildlife issues.

Forest Park Wildlife Removal Tip: Should I ever poison a rat?

The prospect of poisoning rats always appears to be an easy and rosy alternative to the rigors and discomforts of trapping and baiting. However, one should not misconstrue poisoning to be any more effective than actual killing or relocation. In practice, the poisoning of rats is a highly misadvised move and should not happen under any circumstances whatsoever. This is purely for the following reasons:

THE POISON PORTENDS POTENTIAL DANGER TO CHILDREN

Ingestion of rat poison by children is a commonly reported occasion in most hospitals. Over 90% of poisonings to children through ingestion of rat poison actually occurs in the children's own homes.

An accidental intake of rat poison by a crawling child is considerably life threatening and will lead to death within a very short time if not treated. To worsen this fact, most commercial rat poisons do actually taste sweet. This would provide more than an incentive for a small child to eat more of the substances and potentially increase danger to their lives unknowingly.

Since prevention of such happenings is way better than the rush of trying to cure such happenings, it's imperative not to use poisons in your home, and to employ other viable rat control methods.

DANGERS TO PETS AND OTHER DOMESTIC ANIMALS

The risk that a family pet will ingest the potent poison is a real issue in the use of rat poison to kill rats. Dogs, for instance will be curious enough to collect and eat the poison pellets that resemble food to them.

DEAD RATS POSE A HUGE HEALTH RISK

Normally, rat poisons are divided into two types. These are anticoagulant poisons which are mostly made from warfarin, brodificoum or bromadiolone compounds. These work by causation of extreme internal bleeding in the rats. Non-anticoagulant rat poisons which constitute of compounds of zinc sulphide, bromethalan or cholecalciferon. These poisons always take a little longer to kill the rats and work within the span of a few hours.

Since rat poisons are not instantaneous, the rats always end up dead in their nests. This leaves a foul odor in your house. Handling dead rats also increases your exposure to any number of diseases that the rats might be actually carrying.

CONCLUSION

The use of rat poison to kill rats might be effective in the short-term but also highly risky to both human beings and pets. Poison should therefore not be employed at all.
