  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Maryland'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 Maryland'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 Anne Arundel 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 Crofton animal control for wildlife issues.

Crofton Wildlife Removal Tip: Do Cats Keep Rats and Mice Away?

Common Predators for Rats and Mice

As some of you may have known, rodents like rats and mice have predators or enemies, regardless of them living domestically or in wildlife. Most of us may have kept cats (felines) as domestic pets in our homes, partially maybe of felines’ characteristics or even using cats to chase these rodents in their homes. As for wildlife, rats and mice will usually run away from most bird and snake species, especially hawks, falcons, owls or even snakes found in the wild.

1. How Cats Keep Rats and Mice Away?

Cats (felines) are one of the natural predators for rodents like rats and mice. It is a common fact that these cats have in their characteristic to track down rats and mice, chasing them around from one corner of the house to another, until they manage to catch their rodent preys with their paws. Sometimes they even have these “freshly-caught” rodents as their tasty snacks. Most people find cats adorable and easy to be maintained as pets in their homes, while some may consider adopting or keeping these felines as a rodent-catching tool instead.

2. Effectiveness of Keeping Cats as Pets to Keep Rats and Mice Away

So, how effective can it be to keep rats and mice away by having cats kept domestically in their houses? It is deemed and researched that though it is in felines’ nature to hunt down rodents, it may not be reflected as an effective method to keep rodents away in homes. Unlike cats, rodents are smaller in sizes and usually like to hide in dark, small places with higher moisture levels. Rats and mice also rarely come out from their holes to expose themselves in the open.

3. Other Methods to Keep Rats and Mice Away

The best preventive measure to keep rats and mice away is to keep the cleanliness of the house environment and pack all left over food in air-tight storage boxes and refrigerated.
