Columbia County Wildlife Tip:
Should I Hire A Professional Or Remove Rats Myself?
Carrying out rat removal work is something that is done by professionals on a daily basis, and while in Victorian London there were professional rat catchers who would deal with the pests, wildlife removal experts are the modern equivalent. While the equipment may be a little more advanced, and the protective clothing and masks help to reduce the chances of catching any diseases, the job hasn't changed too much in the centuries since. Rat removal work is something that you can do yourself, but this is a time consuming process and those without the expertise may find they need a little more trial and error to be successful.
Work Required In Removing Rats
Depending on where the rat infestation is located, the first step in the removal process is to identify all of the points that the rats are using to get in and out, and while this is fairly easy in a small space, rat infestations in a large attic can require a long and thorough search. Once these have been located, you can start the work of laying the traps to catch the rats. You may need to try different locations, and even look at using different bait, but try and place the traps as close as possible to the areas where you see the signs of the greatest amount of rat activity.
The Benefits Of Hiring A Professional
Professionals will have all of the safety equipment and will have all of the traps already, so this is an option that is likely to make the work of removing the rats a lot easier. A professional wildlife removal expert will also have the experience of dealing with rats, often over several years, so will have some good ideas about the most successful trap locations when it comes to catching the rats.
Carrying Out Repairs And Cleaning After A Rat Infestation
Some of the wildlife removal experts will offer a full package when it comes to getting rid of your rat problem, and particularly if the rats are in an attic or roof cavity, this can be very reassuring. The work of cleaning and replacing soiled insulation material is a tough job, while the final spraying of a disinfectant will provide the reassurance that the area is safe to use. There is a cost to hiring a professional to remove the rats for you, but in many cases this can save you a lot of work and time.

Will The City Or County Animal Services Help Me With A Rat Issue?
This is an area where many people will hope that they can get help, as there is no denying the fact that dealing with a rat issue is not pleasant, and the work required to trap or exclude the rats can often be difficult and drawn out. County and city animal services departments are there to help people with issues relating to wild animals, but the reality is that they simply do not have the resources to help everyone with a rat problem, particularly when there are professional companies offering the same service.
The Purpose Of City And County Animal Departments
These animal services departments will provide many local services such as dealing with dangerous and stray dogs, or helping to dispose of animal carcasses that have been left in public areas. In most cases rat infestations will be domestic problems, so they are not really in a suitable position to provide support beyond guiding you to the different professional companies that can help.
Is There A Public Health Issue Caused By The Animals?
One of the situations that may interest the animal services department will be if you are living in an apartment above a restaurant, and you have a situation where the rats appear to be coming up into your home from below. However, this will usually be referred to the food inspectors first, and the restaurant is likely to be closed down so that the rat problem in the building can be solved.
Dealing With A Rat Issue Yourself
This is actually not as tough as many people will think, although it is fair to say that it can be a long process requiring some patience, and there are several different steps that you will carry out as you remove the rats. Trapping and killing the rats is just the start of the process, as then you will need to seal the attic or cavity that the rats have infested, and then clean and disinfect the area too.
Hiring A Professional Wildlife Removal Expert
Hiring a professional does mean that you can avoid some of the most difficult and dirty aspects of the rat removal process, and there are many situations in which this can save you time and effort. There is a cost for the service, but the value that is offered in most cases will be good, particularly when you look at the different stages of the process that they will complete for you.
