  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Tennessee'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 Tennessee'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 Hamilton 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 East Ridge animal control for wildlife issues.

East Ridge Wildlife Removal Tip: What are the types of house mouse snap traps?

Snap traps are mainly designed to catch house mice but they are not just confined to mice, they can also be used to catch other rodents that are small in size. Examples of snap traps used include the following.

The metal pedal snap trap

It is the most popular method used by people today. Its widespread is due to the fact that it is easy to set up, it is readily available in the market and it is made with hard durable material.

Setting up the metal pedal snap trap.

1. First remove the am bar that is attached to the staple.
2. Move this arm bar to the back of the trap such that it hangs over at the back.
3. Place some food particles on the bait plate to lure the mouse into the trap.
4. Using your thumb to hold, pull back the kill bar into place.
5. The next step is to swing the arm bar over the kill bar and release pressure slowly to keep the kill bar in position.
6. Place this trap in mice activity areas, especially in their frequent pathways and keep it hidden so as to have a quick catch.
7. With one step to take a bite at the bait, the kill bar is released in a snap and just like that the mouse is dead.
8. The mouse can be disposed off with the trap or the trap can be retained and reused over and over again.

The Easy-Set snap trap

It is made of durable wood, spring wires and a cheese scented pedal. How to set up the trap.

1. Unclip the kill bar by simply removing the clip used to secure it.
2. Pull the arm bar and let it hang at the back of the trap.
3. Use good smelling food bait to lure mice into the trap. This is however optional since the pedal is cheese scented.
4. Pull the kill bar with and with the thumb, set it into position.
5. The trap is then to be placed in mice activity areas and pathways and wait for the catch.
6. After capture, the dead body should be disposed of by lifting the kill bar to release the mouse from the trap.
7. This trap can be cleaned, reset and reused for another kill. Quick set snap trap

This snap trap is automated as it comes with a bait hook and the set and release pin are triggered by a single click. Setting up involves squeezing the trap to display the bait hook, placing food on the bait trough to attract mice and positioning the trap in mice prone areas to have a catch. This trap can also be used over and over again before discarding it.
