Oconomowoc wildlife control tip of the month:
HOW TO GET RODENTS OUT OF THE ATTIC?
Rodents are animals living all over the globe with one exception and that would be Antarctica. They live in large numbers and are very sociable animals. Their main characteristic is double incisors of the upper jaws. The incisors grow constantly and that is why these little critters need to gnaw and chew every day. Otherwise, they would grow too much and start to bend backwards toward jaws. Rodents are mammals from Rodentia order.
Understand your enemy
In order to remove rodents out of your attic, you need to know your enemies first. Even though they are naturally shy and hide from people, they will try to find a place for their nest that includes three main sources: food, water, and shelter. Attics are just perfect places for rodents to make a cozy and warm home. There are many pests among rodents; however, your problems in the attic will most probably be caused by mice, rats or squirrels.
When talking about rodent removal, humane attic removal should be mentioned first.
The ultimate humane removal is, of course, preventing them from entering your home in the first place:
- Inspecting house and its surroundings in order to locate and repair all holes
- Trees need to be trimmed and shrubbed to at least 8-10 feet away from the house.

Humane removal no longer applies, now we are talking about the least inhumane Oconomowoc exterminator removal. Unfortunately, after the presence of rodents in your attic has been determined, you do need to get rid of them. Rodents are indeed extremely persistent pests with the tendency of quick reproduction. They can easily damage your wiring, isolation and anything else that can be chewed through. They are also carriers of different diseases, usually leaving behind intensely unpleasant smell and attic full of bacteria.
Setting the spring trap should be your next step while spring trap causes quick and certain death. Spring traps can be used for rats and mice. There is really no need to use glue traps or poison, causing unnecessary torture, stress, and dehydration. After setting the traps in the right places, meaning on the path of pest movement, you need to check traps frequently. When the rodent has been caught you need to properly dispose of its carcass.
However; if squirrels are questionably irritating, it´s better to contact either your state extension service or the closest wildlife agency. There may be some laws to consider and permits to obtain, regarding trapping and relocating the squirrels. Keep in mind that if you are relocating live animal you need to find friendly surroundings with food, water, and shelter, at least, 10 km away from your premises. You may even consider of hiring a professional help.
The final step should be locating, where pests came into your attic and repair the holes in order to make your attic pest-free area.
