  • 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 Pickens 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 Jasper animal control for wildlife issues.

Jasper Wildlife Removal Tip: What Equipment Is Needed To Trap A Rat?

When it comes to trapping rats, there are a variety of different methods that can be used to achieve this, and different people will often have certain pieces of equipment that have worked successfully in the past. However, it is relatively easy to catch rats when you use the equipment in the right location, and you have carried out your checks to make sure you are installing your traps in the right place. Here are some ideas on the kind of equipment you will need.

  • 1. A Trap Or Traps

  • Most people will just use the normal snap traps when they are dealing with rats, but there are a variety of different traps available, including gas and electric traps, but it is best to avoid the glue traps which are unnecessarily cruel. Live trap cages can be used in some areas, but make sure it is legal to relocate the rats, otherwise you will then have to humanely kill the rat yourself.

  • 2. Bait

  • Bait can be useful when you are trying to trap a rat, and this can include meat and fish, particularly things that have a strong scent like cat food or meat that is on the turn. You can also use cheese, peanut butter or marshmallows as a good bait, but most importantly you need to ensure that the bait is placed in an area where the rat has no option but to trigger the trap.

  • 3. Breathing Mask And Thick Clothing

  • This is a good way to protect yourself from any bites or scratches that you may get from the rat, particularly thick gloves, while a breathing mask will help to protect you from any airborne diseases that are sometimes released into the air when rat feces is disposed of.

  • 4. Bags To Dispose Of The Carcass For Lethal Trapping

  • For those using traditional trapping methods, some thick but small plastic bags that can be easily sealed are ideal for dealing with rat carcasses. The bodies should be double bagged to help reduce any scent from escaping, but you can then place these in the garbage for disposal, or incinerate them.

  • 5. A Blanket To Cover The Trap For Live Trapping

  • Although relatively few people will use live trapping as a way of dealing with a rat problem, it is important to have something such as a blanket that can be used to cover the trap when you are relocating the rats. This will prevent the possibility of the rat being able to scratch or bite someone through the bars of the trap.

    Jasper Animal News Clip: Where Should I Relocate A Trapped Rat?

    Rats are a species that have long lived alongside humans in many ways, but they have also been one of the biggest pest animals that humans have struggled to deal with safely. From being implicated in the transmission of the plague to carrying a variety of diseases and infecting food and water sources, living too close to rats can be a serious problem, and one that trapping can often help to resolve. However, knowing what to do once you have caught the rat is another matter, and it is important that you do your research to be sure that what you are doing is legal, and also won't negatively affect someone else.

    Choosing The Right Place To Release The Animal

    The best spots to release wildlife will usually be located well away from any urban settlements, and a minimum of ten miles away from your property to prevent the rat from returning to its previous habitat. Preferably you would be looking for an area that is rural but not in areas where there are sheep and cattle present, and it is best to choose a location away from villages, farms and barns. By finding a suitable spot in this way, you will do the best you can to prevent the rat from becoming a problem to others after it has been released in the wild.

    Regulations Relating Rat Relocation

    Make sure that before you even set a cage trap to catch the rat that you are legally able to relocate rats in your state, as some states will prohibit transporting or relocating pest animals, while other states will insist that you have the written permission of the landowner before you do so. In the District of Columbia, while it isn't legal for homeowners to relocate the rat themselves, professionals can do this, and they will usually release the rats in neighboring states.

    Sealing The Property After Removing The Rat

    One important check to carry out before you seal the attic or cavity where the rats were trapped is to make sure there are no baby rats in a nest in the area. While trapping a rat deals with the immediate problem, unless you seal the property and repair all the holes used by the rats, the pheromones and scent left by the rats through their 'rat grease' can attract other animals. Make sure that each hole is sealed, either with masonry repairs, cement or metal flashing, and this will prevent the rats from being able to get in again.
