  • Scratching Noises in Your Attic?
  • Unwanted Wildlife on Property?
  • Problem Bird or Bat Infestation?

  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Rhode Island'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 Rhode Island'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 Providence 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 Cranston animal control for wildlife issues.

Cranston Wildlife Removal Tip: Why Are There So Many Rats in NYC?

Throughout history, there has always been a strong correlation between densely populated human areas and a high rat population. Rats and humans are decidedly not inversely proportional. Humanity has long-detested the existence of rats, associating them with disease and property damage. Because rats are so common amongst packed regions, there are a lot of myths and urban legends surrounding these creatures. New York City is one place that is well-known for having millions of rats desecrating its streets, and that presumption is not an exaggeration. In 2014, scientists actually discovered that there were roughly two million rats living in NYC. The question is, why?

The Norway Rat (AKA The Brown Rat)

NYC is densely populated by a thriving rat community, but the entire species of rat existing in the Big Apple is exclusively the Norway Rat. Because it is decidedly brown, this species is often referred to colloquially as the brown rat. Trying to figure out why NYC has so many of these disgusting, disease-ridden creatures requires perspective. The average brown rat can squeeze through holes roughly the size of a quarter, and they can survive falls from heights of up to forty feet. They have the ability to tread water for three whole days, and they can jump a distance of four feet across and three feet high. Despite how nasty these pests may be, they are certainly capable of surviving in the hustle-bustle world of New York. It certainly helps that they can produce a dozen baby rats every two months.

Potential Reasons for NYC's Rat Problem

The majority of cities throughout the United States differ in great ways from the grand and expensive New York, but those differences can contribute to a more pest-free environment. Due to the immense human population throughout the city, as well as the somewhat irresponsible public sanitation practices, there are better chances of rodents surviving in NYC. Additionally, the climate and resource acquisition contribute exponentially to the popularity of NYC as a rat destination. Rats can live off of an ounce of food and water per day, which increases their likelihood of survival in a city that has a distinct littering problem. Because of budget cuts to health and sanitation departments throughout the city, the rats have flourish in such a supportive environment. They can find all of the food they need to survive, give birth to more rats every couple of months, and they have no natural threats at this point in time in the city of New York.
