Many of Washington'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.

Island County Wildlife Removal Tip: How Do You Remove A Rat Stuck In A Dumpster?

You must be curious to know what are the objects that draw rats to your garden or yard area. Well! One of their common target on your property is the dumpster. There are many reasons for wild animals getting attracted towards dumpsters. These garbage cans not only attract rats rather they also attract many other creatures such as skunks, raccoons, and squirrels, etc.

Most of the wild rodents spend hours on exploring the dumpster in your garden as they get attracted towards the strong smell of food inside it. This garbage collection offers them a big treat that they can enjoy in a group. Once rodents get attracted towards dumpsters, soon they also start exploring other things in your area such as vegetation and fruits fallen from the trees. All these things provide them favorable conditions to create havoc and nuisance on your property, and within the time they will even plan to build nests in your area. Many homeowners in the United States are in trouble due to frequent attacks of rats on their property, and they want to know the best solution to get rid of them as soon as possible.

You might have seen rats trapped in the dumpsters, it happens much time, and they often need external help to get out of it. Note that rats are omnivorous creatures and they often get attracted towards the unlimited food sources available at human habitat. Their first preference use to be your dumpster and with time they can also attack the stored stuff in the kitchen. Being nocturnal creatures, rats prefer to target dumpsters in the night hour and will often come out of it when they finish eating. But sometimes they get stuck inside and do not find a way to get out of it. When rodents get stuck in a dumpster, they often feel nervous and agitated, so they must be removed with care and patience. The best idea is to take them out with the help of a snare pole or cage.

In case if you donít have snare pole or cage with you; the next best option is to tip the container to one side. This action will frighten the rat, and it will try to escape out of the dumpster. Sometimes rats are not able to come out when the dumpster is not filled completely. In such cases, you can try filling dumpster to its top level so that rats can easily find a way to come out. Once you are successful in taking them out of the dumpster, it is important to make efforts for rodent proofing to ensure safety for future. Seal all the holes found on the dumpster and lock it tightly so that rodents cannot get inside. Also, prefer to keep your landscape clean and free from leftovers so that rats do not find anything attractive in your premises. It will help you to avoid rat infestation in your property and will also save you from physical damage that is often caused by rats.
