  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Illinois'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 Illinois'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 McLean 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 Bloomington animal control for wildlife issues.

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

As soon as you spot a rat in your home, the first thing that crosses your mind is how to get rid of it. There is hardly any person who finds these pesky animals to be good for the home. They can cause a lot of damage and have the ability to build huge nests in your home if you do not act quickly. The best way to get rid of them is to trap the rats using humane traps that will kill them instantly so that you can then dispose them. So let us look at the things you need to trap a rat and get rid of it from your house effectively.

1. Trap It goes without saying that getting rid of a rat from your house requires a rat trap. There are a variety of traps available in the market but I am talking about the ones that will make it easy for you to get rid of these rats without being inhumane in the process of doing so. There are electronic rat traps that can deliver a high voltage charge which kills the rats immediately and humanely. Similarly, we have power-kill rat traps that can also be used for killing a rat humanely. The fact that these traps do not use any chemicals or poisons to kill the rats makes sure that they are more environment friendly than poisons that can be picked up by other pets in the house or may harm children in the family too.

2. Bait A bait is required for the rat to be lured into the trap. Peanut butter and Slim Jims are known to be effective baits. Even chocolate has worked for many people who try to trap rats. There are some rat traps that have a scented Swiss cheese pedal which can prove as a bait for the rats.

3. Garbage bag or container A garbage bag or a close lid container is useful in disposing the carcass of the rat that you killed with the help of the trap. If you leave the body to decay, you will end up with an offensive smell that will fill your house. So make sure that you remove the carcass as soon as you can in order to maintain the sanity of the house.

4. Vacuum Cleaner Once you have successfully trapped a rat you need to remove the feces, food and fur left by the rat in different parts of your house. The air pressure helps in removing the small particles more effectively than scrubbers and brushes. This helps you in decontaminating your home after the rat has been removed.

Once the rats are removed, make sure you disinfect the house. In addition to these equipments, a mask and gloves are also helpful in ensuring that the rats are removed from the house without any skin contact.
