Many of Louisiana'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 Louisiana'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 St. Tammany Parish animal services for assistance.

There is no free Mandeville animal control for wildlife issues.

Mandeville Wildlife Removal Tip: How Rats Communicate Using Pheromones

Most of the people believe that rats communicate with their mates and colony members through squeaks and chirps. But very few of you might be aware of the fact that these creatures actually follow a secret language for communication that is understood only by rodents. Many scientists are working hard to decode the rat language. It is proven that rats leave signals in the form of pheromones that can be picked up by other rats in the area to collect valuable information. Note that these pheromones are actually some chemical signals that deliver information between members of same species. Interspecies communication becomes possible just because of these pheromones. Rats are capable enough to convey essential information to other partners such as safe shelter location, courtship, need for sex, the presence of food, the location of a predator, feeling of safety and affection towards each other. These chemical signals are often used by male rats to dominate other males whereas female use them to attract male rats with potential traits.

You will be surprised to know that rats have the ability to deliver very specific messages via pheromones. They can easily make other members of the community aware of any danger that exists around. This behavior is common in rats that live in wild areas as well as in those who live in captivity. Experts say that rats possess an auxiliary olfactory organ in their body that is named as vomeronasal organ or VNO along with the group of epithelium tissues that are also named as sinus membranes. The VNO works like a chemoreceptor that helps to capture essential information from pheromones in the form of scent and sends it to the brain of the rat. On the other side, the olfactory epithelium is present in nostrils, and it responds to various airborne smells.

VNO is located in nasal cavities at the deeper place, and it gets activated only by the fluid-based scents that work like pheromones. On the other side, the olfactory system makes use of some high-brain functions and helps to trigger desired responses. The pheromone systems help to stimulate responses in the brain of the rat. Note that there are basically two types of pheromones; the first one uses communication through the primer. It covers various reactions such as dominance, thirst, hunger, anger, danger, sex, and fear, etc. Other types of pheromones are communication by information, and they provide some informative content to other rats such as are you healthy, the location of best food source, danger around and where we should go, etc.

So, the interesting fact is that rats rarely communicate via squeaking sound rather they are more active to communicate through smell. Once you know how they communicate, it is possible to understand their behavior in much better manner. This information can also be used to curb their populations in residential areas. Many researchers are working in this direction to collect few essential facts so that homeowners can get some relief from rat attacks in future. Clearly, these creatures have very sensitive noses that make their communication very easy.
