  • We Can Solve It!
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.

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 Travis county animal services for assistance.

There is no free Pflugerville animal control for wildlife issues.

Pflugerville Wildlife Removal Tip: Does poison make mice thirsty and die outside?

There are so many myths surrounding mice. One of them being that when they take poison, they feel thirsty hence tends to move outside to quench thirst and end up dying there. This is so false. In fact the way events occur is the exact opposite to that myth.

How does mice poisoning work?

Once poisonous food is ingested, the poison will start to corrode the wall of the upper gastrointestinal system; i.e. the oesophagus, fore stomach and the glandular stomach. This corrosion is usually extreme hence results in organs starting to bleed form the inside. They will lose the urge to eat any more hence they will become weak from starvation and pain. This will furthermore affect their movement, as it will become sluggish and more sluggish as days go by. They will confine themselves in their nests or a well hidden area as they know they are not strong to neither tackle nor defend themselves against danger if it approaches. In the end, they will be unable to move completely and so as the poison takes full effect on their bodies, they die.

The non-responsive mechanism of mice to poison

The fact that mice succumb o poisoning means that their bodies are unable to counteract and defend themselves from its effect. However, scientists deduced that there are some mice that have developed adaptive genetics that help them not get affected by some types of poison. This is because the poison in question was used excessively in the past and with time certain mice species adapted gene resistance to it so as to survive. These genes were then passed to their young ones hence a new generation was born. Scientifically, this is referred to as survival for the fittest.

However, for the non-resistant gene types and the use of other poison, the end result is the same, death. Mice body structures lack the vomiting reaction. Their nerve system, which carries information to the brain to solicit this reaction, does not fully connect the entire body organs which are essential for vomiting. An incomplete system means failure or complete absence of a certain process. In the case of mice, they will not vomit. However, they can slightly and momentarily move food from the stomach to the oesophagus to the throat and back, but not out of the mouth.

With this inability, mice are unable to expel poisonous food once ingested thus they have to undergo the painful process that the poison causes. His process can either take place in a matter of minutes or a couple of days, depending on the type of the poison used and the mice species. Some poisons are very concentrated hence very lethal while others are not. On the other hand, some mice have low immunity like the young ones hence will feel the effects sooner and immensely unlike those with strong immune systems.
