Many of Pennsylvania'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 Pennsylvania'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 Wyoming 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 Tunkhannock animal control for wildlife issues.

Tunkhannock Wildlife Removal Tip: How To Get Rats Out Of The Attic?

One of the most feared rodents, rats can be real nuisance to your homes. They will eat the food in the kitchen, gnaw through the electrical insulation, thermal insulation, damage your roofing, dirty your place with their droppings and carry dangerous diseases. It is best that if they are spotted inside your home take immediate measures to evacuate them.

Attics are warm and the safest place for rodents to nest and if there are cracks or holes around your house, rats are likely to get inside your home. Examine your home thoroughly and try to locate all the gaps and holes that the rats use to get inside your house. Make sure to check the roof, the vents, roof lines etc.

Now seal all the entry holes, use steel to block them as rats cannot chew through steel. You can bolt steel in its place and then use a sealant to block the air. Blocking air discourages rats from coming inside if they cannot smell the air through the gap.

Once everything is sealed you can set traps for the rats. Use snap traps, they are the best traps to catch these rodents, put them on rat runways in the attic. These runways are easy to locate as they will be trampled down, covered in rat droppings and greasy. If you want to use some sort of bait, we recommend peanut butter or a piece of chocolate. Irrespective of the bait the location of placing the trap should be right else it will not work.

Monitor all the traps everyday, remove dead rats if there are any and reset the traps. Keep a routine check on the trap else the rats will start decomposing and your attic will stink. Wait till you do not hear any more sounds from the attic or walls. Once the scampering and scratching stops you know that there are no more rats left and you can remove the traps.

You must be thinking whether it is humane to kill a rat. Well rats are animals that are used to living within 100 feet from their nests. They do not roam around the neighbourhood, if they do not find what they need to survive within this space they die. If they venture into another rats domain they die, if they travel they will be killed by their predators and if the rats are away from their nests for 48 hours they die. It would be humane on your part to kill them as if you set live traps and relocate them they are dead anyways. Snare traps are best to use and to get rid of rats from your attic.
