Critter tip: Get rats out of attic - It is possible to get rats out of your attic. The most proficient methods of removal is through lethal trapping, though some people are inclined to try repellents and live trapping. Repellents are ineffective against rats. These rodents are notoriously fearless and intelligent. Once they have claimed a home, nothing will chase them from it. If they feel threatened they will become more reclusive and more ingenious about how and when they emerge from hiding. Another method of rat control is poison. Poison is effective but not recommended. Poisoned rats will die within the structure of your home, leaving behind a dreadful scent that will linger for weeks or months. Live traps can be effective for removal, but when relocating a problem rat you need to make sure no homes are within range of the rodent. Relocated rats also have a high mortality rate since they are thrust out into the open without food or shelter. Most professionals recommend lethal trapping for rats. Snap traps are humane and efficient and can be reused after a successful capture. Baited snap traps are positioned in the areas where rats have left their markings. When used correctly these traps have a high success rate.

Critter tip: Fresh mouse droppings - There is a difference between fresh mouse droppings and old mouse droppings, though both types of feces are potentially dangerous to humans. Fresh mouse droppings will appear darker in color and will have a glisten of moisture to them. Old droppings are dry and lackluster, often reduced to powder when handled. No matter how old the droppings left behind by a mouse, always wear gloves when cleaning up the mess. Rodent feces carry serious diseases, some of which can cause death. Any droppings should be bagged and discarded and the area should be cleaned with bleach or another antimicrobial cleanser. Fresh droppings suggest that a mouse has decided to live inside the home and trapping should be considered to remove the pest before it damages walls or wires. Mice can be destructive and can squeeze into places many other nuisance animals cannot. A mouse problem will only increase if no action is taken. One mouse will breed with another mouse and the cycle will continue on until human intervention is required.
