Rodents , whether indoors or outdoors, are treated by applying a attractant bait which the rodent eats, making them thirsty where they seek a water source away from your home.
When being treated for rodents, be sure to keep all dog dishes empty at night and ensure all leaks have been repaired.
Keep wood piles and debris well away from your home, and clear the yard of abandoned structures or vehicles to discourage rodents and wildlife from making this their home.
How do I know if what I hear in my attic or walls is a squirrel or a rat? Daytime movement is typically a squirrel; night- time movement is typically a rat.
Regardless of their size, rats can squeeze through an opening the size of a quarter.
Raccoons are nocturnal creatures which invade your garbage. They like to den in attics, causing major damage once they move in. They carry parasites, and can grow to 20 pounds. They are the #1 carrier of rabies, and often carry canine distemper. Their feces may contain raccoon roundworm, the spores of which humans can breathe in and may become seriously infected. A litter consists of 3 to 5, and mothers are very protective of their young; if you see a baby, there is a mother nearby. Do not approach a raccoon which appears friendly, as this is a sign of a rabid animal.
Squirrels and Raccoons not only carry Fleas and Ticks, but also disease.
Armadillos will do extensive yard damage at night in search of grubs and earthworms. This is why we recommend a good lawn program to control insects in conjunction with removing the Armadillos.
