Bibb County, Macon Rat Control Situation:
Hi David, I'm trying to catch/kill a rat in my garage. I've set 3 snap traps and he has "snapped" all three of them but still got away. I did notice some blood on the 3rd snap trap but that's it. How do you think he got away from all 3? Is he too big for the traps to be effective? or was his head just not in the right place when the trap snapped? I placed them all along walls with the bait close to the wall. I've reset all my traps but so far he appears scared to go towards any of them. Any ideas?
Hi - I live in Manufactured house in a heavy wooded area. I am not sure if I have mice or rats, but I do have problems occasionally and too late already used poison. Can you tell me the average charge to hire someone and also where we might look for opening in manufactured house as there is no attic and only a crawl space underneath the house. I am terrified of these critters and do not want them in my house. Will they be attracted bu rawhide and such types of dog bones? As I have two dogs and it is hard to keep track of there chew stuff they like to hide. Thanks for any advice you can spare.
Macon Rat Control Tip of The Week
What Surfaces Are Rats Able To Climb?
Discovering rodents on your rooftop or in your attic may surprise you. These are places that are, to some degree, difficult to reach and require some uncommon climbing capacity. For rodents, however, that isn't that difficult to manage. Rats are astonishing climbers. They can climb anything. If there is something to hold on to, they can climb it. To get to food and water and their home, they will climb anything. From trees to blocks to stone, they will climb it. This implies they can get into pretty much anything. It doesn't make a difference if it is an opening at base level or in the rooftop, they can get to it.
Most rodents are good climbers. Squirrels, mice, rats, and other rodents can climb pretty much anything. It is of nothing unexpected to individuals who see them frequently; however, the degree of their climbing capacity despite everything is surprising to a few. Climbing trees, plants, and anything with a good foothold is no problem. They can snatch on and climb any of that to get to where they need to go. A lot of people expect this as they see it often in rodents like squirrels.
What It Means For You
It is impressive, however, it tends to be a real torment for homeowners. Since rodents are astounding climbers, they can get into any place. If there is an opening anyplace in your home, rodents can arrive at it. They get into these openings and make their homes in a matter of moments, causing chaos. This is why extra care is required when it comes to sealing any potential holes. Since rodents can fit through even tiny spaces, you want to limit their options.
