Many of Washington's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found
that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably,
these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire
hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Washington's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Olympia Wildlife Removal Tip: Are cage traps a good option for rats? Cage traps can be ideal for rats however the cage traps must provide a conducive environment for the rats because relocated rats rarely survive. Relocated rats are often faced with harsh climatic conditions, shortage of food supplies, and exposure to large predators. The reaction of rats to cage traps can be violent, however choosing cage traps with the right sizes can help to calm a rat before relocation. In addition to choosing the right size of cage trap, the contents inside the trap cage also matters- you should consider placing some muds and papers inside the cage as rats want to get warm as quickly as possible before and after relocation.
A spring-loaded one door cage trap can be ideal because a rat may find it difficult to push its way out, however, a funnel cone made of steel mesh and cut to the right size for the rat can be a good option for the animal.
Pitfall trap is a kind of incorporated treadle that is supported by a magnetic catch in such a way that a rat entering into the cage trap will have a balance point just before the ratís weight will trigger the treadle to give way. It is ideal to suppress the treadle to allow the trap close behind, as the rat enters. The Pitfall trap can be ideal for catching rats at home, however it may not be ideal for relocate rats because it does not provide adequate protection against harsh weather conditions.
Repeater traps can be the better options for cage traps, these traps are made up of welded wire mesh, and it can be reset for other rats after catching the first one. The sheet metal bait hopper also makes it easier for the rat to be enticed into the cage trap. Repeater traps can be made with environmental friendly materials to cover the welded wire mesh and provide warmth for a rat especially when relocating it.
The alarms raised by trapped rats seem to alert other rats against the dangers of cage traps, however when a rat enters a Pitfall cage trap quietly, then it becomes easier to trap other rats around. Both repeater trap and pitfall have been found to be not too good for rats because the noises made by rats trapped in such cages can attract the attention of others , thus they may not be captured , even with enticing baits.
For cage traps, a rat will usually react by running around for a while after being captured, especially towards the entrance , and relocate rats will rarely survived because rats donít like being caged for a long time without access to food, water and warm environment.

Henry Rusty the Rabbit's woodchuck wildlife trapping time allotment lasted two minutes.
