Many of Indiana'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 Indiana'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 Steuben 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 Angola animal control for wildlife issues.

Angola Wildlife Removal Tip: Where Should I Relocate A Trapped Rat?

So you have already trapped the rats and now looking for best places to relocate them to ensure they will not be back again in your property. For this not only you need to consider the place rather the time as well. Here is all the details about how, when and where to relocate the rats after trapping.


The best time to release trapped rats is the late evening and early morning. So, you can opt for any of the two options but early morning is the better option of these two. This rodent's vision is quite poor while it is doubly during day time. So, early morning is best as it will still be dark outside during then. There is another reason to choose early morning as the preferred time because this animal remains busy at midnight in doing their job, so if they are relocated in the dawn, it will limit their needs of immediate shelter which in turn will increase the chance of their survival.

Where to relocate

No doubt the trapped rats should be released far away from home at least one mile away. Also ensure the place is uninhabited but has some source of foods. It is also good if you can find out a place that has water source such as nearby river, drain etc. But if you are really looking for a rat heaven then nothing can be best than nearby park, forest or wildness preserve.

Another best thing you can do is to leave some biodegradables such as leftover, cotton, product with the rats as it will help them for a day.

Large rock, tree and shrub are also best places to relocate the rats. Rats will start digging the rock to crate their tunnels. But if rock is hard enough then consider leaving them in the tree or shrubs. Tree or shrub will help them to stay protected as they will find enough places there for hiding.


Relocating is another stressful job that is to be dealt very carefully. If you carry them in the car or bike, the rats will start screaming in scare which is very tough to tolerate during the whole journey. So, you can put a rag over the live cage trap that will calm down the rodents while it is safe for you as well. But the rag shouldn't be used again so use a very old and torn rag for this purpose.

Once you have reached the destination, open the cage door and the rats will be free. It is always suggested to release the trapped rats in a large group as it will again increase the chance of their survival.
