  • 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 Prince George's 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 Laurel animal control for wildlife issues.

Laurel Wildlife Removal Tip: Do Dogs Keep Rats and Mice Away?

Characteristics of Dogs

When it comes to the term “man’s best friend”, most of us will always think of dogs. They show loyalty and passionate to us humans and like to be territorial with the places that they “own” through their markings. Not only that, dogs can also be trained with skills overtime, so that they can be the “patrolling officer” with their territories.

1. How Dogs Keep Rats and Mice Away?

Unlike cats, dogs may not have in their characteristic to track, hunt and capture rodents like rats and mice. However, dogs tend to be more territorial when comes to the places that they have marked as their own, and even their living homes with their owners. Dogs are also clever and very obedient to instructions or even orders. Hence, home owners can train them to become their personal security guard at homes and prevent rodents from infesting in their houses.

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

Keeping dogs as pets for rodent controlling in houses may not be that effective, as compared to owners with cats kept as domestic pets. It is not in dogs’ nature to chase rodents. However, if the rodents like rats and mice come out from their hiding places for food hunting and cross the dogs’ marked territories in the housing environment, these will incur the wrath of these domestic dogs and become as fierce as how cats can be towards rodents.

3. Other Methods to Keep Rats and Mice Away

The best preventive measure to keep rats and mice away is to keep the cleanliness in the environment, pack and place all left over food in air-tight storage boxes kept refrigerated. Another alternative is to keep cats as pets in the houses.
