Bexar County, San Antonio Rat Control Situation:
In mid July of 2008, a friend brought me a 4 week old baby girl rat that she found by the garbage. I live n San Antonio TX. I kept and raised her, she was my little girl and she was a sweetheart. I fell very much in love with her, but not until after I released her to the outside world. In December I started taking her outside for a couple hours each day until she got to the point she wanted to sleep in the tree. She was outside for about four months until April 1st, when she didn't come home. Everyday for those four months she came to me when I called her name, until that morning she didn't show up to get her breakfast. My husband called her for lunch that day, but she never came and I tried again at dinner time, but no show. We tried to find her for two weeks after that, but she was no where to be found. I wish I would have never let her outside and kept her as a pet. I loved her very much and she loved me, we would play together for a couple hours everyday, she was different from the other squirrels. I would like to find another baby squirrel if I could. I see that you trap them and relocate them, do you ever come across any that are special needs and if so what do you do with them? Or do you know who I could contact to see about getting one for a pet? I feed the rats in my back yard everyday and my husband now has a girl squirrel that comes to him for peanuts, she is very cute. I could set and watch them all day. Can you help me? Thanks, Candace
San Antonio Rat Control Tip of The Week
What Is The Cost Of Rat Removal?
Having rats in your home comes with the immediate need to get them removed if you don't want them to cause damage that you can't afford. And to remove them permanently, you have to get it done properly.
The first thing you need to do is hire skilled professionals. We have seen many homeowners choose pest control companies where they are asked to pay a sum monthly just to remove the rats in their homes without getting the results they desired.
You can't afford to make the same mistake. If you want to hire a professional to help remove the rats in your home, you need to choose a wildlife removal service. Apart from getting rid of the rats in your home, they will find and seal off all possible entry holes and prevent further reentry. With their services, you will be able to get it done once and for all.
There is no exact fixed cost for removal. The amount you will be paying depends on several factors. Ideally, if the rat problem you are having in your home is not a complex one, the total cost of removing the rat might run between $300 to $500.
The cost of a rat removal service depends on the part of the country you reside in, the number of rats that need to be removed, the number of service traps that will be needed to remove all the rats, the number of repairs that need to be done, and if cleanup is needed after removing the rats.
The initial cost you will have to pay might seem expensive but you need to understand the fact that it is worth it.
