Hillsborough County, Manchester Rat Control Situation:
Hello, I have problems with a feral cat and an opossum and a bear in my yard in Manchester CT. And I would like some advice about who I should call, because I have dealt with two companies in the area already who charge a lot of money and do not actually get rid of the problem. Two years ago, I paid a company to remove a flying squirrel who had gone down our chimney and was popping up in the house. They told me to have trees cut down around the house, which I did, which was also very expensive! They removed one of the squirrels in the area, but I know that there are still flying squirrels here as I can hear them at night running up the telephone wires and running across the roof. Last year, I paid a wildlife company to trap some squirrels on the roof who were damaging the chimney. Although they removed a mother and two baby squirrels, they were unable to catch the other two squirrels who continue to run around the roof. Please, could you recommend a reputable company who could help me with these animals, as I am tired of paying companies who don't actually help and don't return your money.
Manchester Rat Control Tip of The Week
Reasons Why Rats Die Inside Attics And Houses
They Get Thirsty:
Rats often get thirsty when they have ingested any type of poison or when they cannot find their way out of a house. When rats go in search of water, they go towards an area where they will be closest to the outside world. When they have difficulty getting out of the home, they may find themselves in the attic close by their water source that they desperately need but unable to access a way out of the home.
They Get Poisoned On The Way Back To The Nest:
Rats will often travel throughout the home after they've been poisoned. Because poison often takes a bit of time to take effect, a rat might make its way up to the attic to stay warm and then die on its way back from the attic.
They Bleed Out:
Rats that have been affected by spring traps and other means for capturing may bleed out if they sustained serious injuries. This can happen quite quickly especially if the rat has made its way up to the attic to try and escape. This often becomes the final resting space for rats and this can eventually lead to foul odors.
They Get Stuck In Glue Traps:
Glue traps can be another cause for a rat to get stuck in an attic area. When a rat gets stuck in a glue trap it's possible that it will simply die in the area which can lead to people finding the rat or the rat causing a series of issues with smells and rotting. Glue traps are commonly placed in attics because this can be an easy place as it is out of sight for pets, toddlers, and home/business owners.
