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

Fairfax County Wildlife Removal Tip: Does poison make rats thirsty and die outside? Rat poison is a powerful weapon against rats, causing an internal bleeding and eventually, death. However, it doesnít make them thirsty. That is simply a myth. The rats will be lethargic and will not go outside the house to die, except if there is their nest; in that case they will go out, but, that's not the case all the time. Mostly, if they took the poison inside the house, they will die in there, for sure.
The pest control companies have placed that lie in public, telling that the rat poison will make them thirsty and they will go outside to die. That is simply not true. The poison is so strong and will create a huge bleeding inside the rat, it will not be able to move, eat or drink, death sentence is written all over it, and it's just a matter of time. No known poison has the ability to cause the rats an immediate death, most of them will take four to ten days to finally kill a rat. So, there is no certain place where will rat die because of that delayed effect of the poison. They could go and die in their nests, inside the house or another hidden place in your property.
The rats do need water on a daily basis, but the poison will definitely not make them thirsty. Some of the anti-coagulants have slight tendencies to make rats thirsty, but they will find water in their usual places. Those are very rare cases and isolated ones. The fact is that the rat can last longer without water than the camel, so you should keep that in mind next time when somebody tells you about the above-mentioned myth. Rodents cannot vomit and all the poison that they took it stays in their organisms. The poison will prevent them from eating and drinking, causing internal bleeding and heart attack. The effects of the poison are devastating for rats and it will not give them any chance for getting better.
So, the next time when you hear these silly stories, donít pay attention to them. It is unknown where the rat will die, and if it's not in your house, even better, you donít have to deal with the horrible smell of decomposing body. Also, you donít have to track the dead rat and remove the carcass later. Just be sure to check the poisoned places regularly and you will not have any problems. The only thing that could save the rat is a large amount of Vitamin K which is the good antidote for anti-coagulant. Of course, we know that and they donít.
