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 Shelby county animal services for assistance.

Germantown Wildlife Removal Tip: How to get rats out of the attic

Having rats in a one's attic is an extremely aggravating and sometimes angering situation. While there are several methods of getting rats out of the attics, some are considerably more humane and more effective; it is worthy to note that one should not kill them in the process.

Method of control

Over time, it has become increasingly clear that conventional tactics of trying to remove rats from attics are not as effective as earlier thought. Moths and mothballs, the use of ultrasonic sound emitters and strobe lights has proved over and over that rats are not deterred by the same methods. Poisoning should not at all be a resort at any one point. It is both horrible and extremely inhumane to kill rats.

Process of removing rats from the attic.

1. One should undertake to inspect the attic to determine the level of infestation, and the most prevalent areas of activity.
2. Undertake to also inspect the immediate area outside of your house to determine possible entry and exit points.
3. Sealing of every hole found, especially the entry and exit points of the rats with special intent on sealing off air flow. Only after you have sealed up all entry and exit points should attempts be made to trap the rats.
4. Set up traps in the attic, with concentration on spots where there is higher rates of defecation shown by larger piles of feces. There are several kinds of traps that will do this. One can decide to use either the conventional standard mouse trap, the fly paper traps or snap traps which are considerably the most effective.
5. Place bait on the traps to attract the rats. In most cases, peanut butter does the trick.
6. Remove the traps on a daily basis, and also reset the traps once done. It is also important to monitor the catches made each day.
7. When there are no more trappings, and the noise from movement of rats in the attic is no more, it would suffice to say that you have succeeded.
8. Even after the process is done, it is very important to consider cleaning the attic and decontaminating it to prevent spread of diseases.


While rats are disturbing and cumbersome, it is not advisable at all to use poison to remove them from attics. There are a lot of methods that are ingenious and more effective than simple poisoning.
