Scranton wildlife control tip of the month: What to do about rodent such as roof rats in the attic: When you have a rodent such as roof rat in the attic, you are going to know about - they can be rather destructive, and for most people, there is an urgency to get rid of them in the fastest way possible. Some people choose to call on the assistance of a wildlife expert to come and get rid of the creature and block up all the holes, while others decide to trap and release them personally. There are some people out there, however, that choose upon poison to be their weapon of choice against the pesky rodent such as roof rat, and although it can be a very effective method when done properly, it can come with a huge range of problems that you may not have thought about. If you call up and ask any wildlife expert about using poison to get rid of a rodent such as roof rat, you will be told a million horror stories about half-hearted DIY poison jobs, from entire sections of attic insulation being ripped out to find a very smelly decomposing carcass, to huge chunks of drywall being cut apart to try and find the dead body. That's the problem with using poison - it takes it sweet time and you NEVER know where the animal will end up staying to die. You will soon realize the creature has indeed died however, you will certainly smell it, and it is not a smell that you are going to relish! There are stories going around, and have been for many years, that when an animal eats rat and mouse specific poisons, they become dehydrated to the point where they will not smell once they have started decomposing. Don't believe it guys; the animal will stink and you are going to smell it, regardless of how much air freshener you use!
What time does raccoon get out to search for food? Let me set the scene - you have an animal in your home, driving you crazy with its incessant scuffling and winding up your cat or dog. You think I's a raccoon, what do you do about it? Well, the first thing that you should do is understand the raccoon. This will help you greatly when trying to find a way to remove the animal from your home. If you are choosing to trap the raccoon, you will need to know about the best places to put the trap, and also the right times to set them down. Constantly leaving the trap out is not always the best of options; you might catch a kid or the cat! Thankfully, by learning when the animal is making its daily move from your house to the great outdoors to forage for food, and where the creature is heading to and from, you can place your traps in the best places possible to catch the animal fast. The first thing that you should know about the raccoon is that it is a nocturnal creature. This is why it keeps you awake at night, running in and out of your home, scuffling around etc. This means that setting the traps before you go to bed at night is a good idea, removing them when you wake up in the morning. Usually, the raccoon will leave its humble abode at around 11pm, so you will want to set the traps a couple of hours before this, once you have made sure that the kids are in bed, and the pets are safely indoors. The raccoon will normally return just before daybreak, so around 4-6am, meaning that clearing the traps when you wake up in the morning is wise.
