Many of Texas'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 Texas's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Denton County Wildlife Removal Tip: How rats communicate using pheromones - It is widely known that rats, mice and other small rodents usually live in groups or packs, and often time whenever you find one rodent in your house, there is a high likelihood that the other one is right around the corner. Due to their incredible rate of reproduction, rats are extremely widespread throughout the world and they are able to adapt to almost any living condition no matter how terrible they are, in fact, the dirtier the place, the better a home it makes for rats as long as there is food and water in the area. Therefore, understanding the way rats communicate between each other can give us insight into their behavior and it can help prevent any future infestations and keep their population under control.
There is evidence that rats use audio frequencies that are inaudible to human ears, but in addition to that, they also communicate with the use of pheromones. This allows them to convey an incredible amount of information from all aspects that could concern a particular rat. Pheromones are chemicals that are released by their bodies and caught up by the scent of other rats, by interpreting the scent, the rats are able to gain several types of information. Therefore the pheromone types are divided into ones that serve as an alarm to other rodents in case of any nearby danger and they also indicate the stress level of a rat that gave out the pheromone.
Trail pheromones are also frequently left along the routes that are commonly used in order to signal the correct way for other rats. These usually lead from a source of food to their nest and vice versa. Another significant way they use pheromones is something similar to territorial marking like we see in our dogs, when they mark their territory with urine. Rats do that too, also the strong scent in male rats, the pheromones of the male can cause any nearby females to develop faster sexually and be ready for mating. Similarly, female rats also release pheromones that serve a purpose of attracting males. This is what arouses them and primes their sexual behavior; it is also present in other species of mammals. All of the pheromones are sensed by a particular organ, called the vomeronasal organ located in the brain of the animals.
Aside from marking their territory and facilitating sexual behavior, rat pheromones also give out specific range of information about each and every single rat that secludes the pheromones. The information can indicate if they are ready for the mating season, their condition and health level, it can even indicate what type of food that ate recently, so that is quite amazing.
