Mercer County Wildlife Removal Tip:

How To Deal With A Rodent In The Attic - The first thing to note is that if you think you have a rodent in the attic you are probably wrong - you will, more than likely, have a whole colony. Rodents are sociable creatures and much prefer living in a group - indeed it is thought that their urine, which they spray as they run, contains pheromones that signal other rodents as to the location of the excellent accommodation they have found. Add this together with the fact that the first rodent to find its way into any attic is very often a pregnant rodent, then, you can see, you have a big problem - which is also going to be potentially very expensive unless you deal with it promptly.

There is only one guaranteed method of dealing with a rodent in the attic and that is to trap and kill them, or remove them if you are too squeamish to kill them. Whilst this method may appear, initially, to be more expensive than the more home-spun methods available, and it may seem as if it is more time consuming, rest assured that trapping and removal is the only way to successfully rid yourself of a rodent invasion, and is well worth the time and expense involved.
