g is an underrated method of controlling
rodents. One reason trapping is often overlooked is that snap traps have
been around for a long time and are cheap. Traps can be used to
eliminate rats where poison baits would be dangerous, to avoid dead rat
odors, and to eliminate bait-shy rats.
It is important to place traps where
the rats are. Rats and mice are used to human odors so there is no need
to use gloves when handling traps. Since mice travel only 10-30 feet but
rats travel 100-150 feet from harborages, more traps are needed to trap
mice than rats in a house.
Rats and mice also have different
behavior around new objects. Rats are cautious, and it may be a week
before they approach a trap. Mice are curious and will normally approach
traps the first night. If you don't catch a mouse in the first few
nights, the trap is in the wrong location. To help rats overcome trap
shyness, place traps unset, in place, for several days. This allows rats
to overcome shyness and results in better catches.
Baited traps rely on the rat's being
attracted for feeding. The bait must compete with other available foods,
so no one bait is ever the best bait for all locations. Rodents living
on garbage or spoiled food prefer something fresh. The following are
some baits that have proven to be successful:
Wounded or sick animals seek
inaccessible spots in a home or business (another reason
we never recommend poisons). If
you think something has died, let us find and remove the remains before
the smell becomes intolerable. This business is not for the faint of
Ocala pest control companies, but most
deal with extermination of insects. We deal strictly with wild animals,
such as raccoon, skunk, opossum, and more. Wildlife Patrol, Inc. differs from
the average Ocala exterminator business because we are licensed and
insured experts, and deal only with animals. We are not merely trappers,
but full-services nuisance wildlife control operators, offering advanced

Ocala Animal Control & Pest Wildlife Removal
In Marion County, FL
I searched animal removal-southfield, mi and in the first two or
three names was one who called himself “trapper.” I didn’t have to
look any further. I needed someone who had this kind of claim on his
ability to do this work. “Trapper Ron” was his name as listed. I
gave him a call and he said he’d be here within an hour. Wow, I
thought! I needed quick help. He came over and I showed him where my
new furry friend was. Well, I guess the raccoon started likin’ my
fireplace and he climbed up beyond Trapper Ron’s pole-yoke could
reach. So he set some traps and said he’d be back to pick it up in
the morning. We talked the next day he told me the bait was missing
out of two traps and a dish filled with bait was taken from a third.
It was such a cold and dreary night, the traps had frozen open! So
he had re-baited them and the next day he called to tell me he
caught them. Them?!, I thought. No. Mine was still with me. So I was
rid of two extra pests that I didn’t know I had! Trapper Ron came
over with a jar of stuff I remember as Scent of Coyote. He thought
this smell of a raccoon’s mortal enemy would certainly run it out of
its new home. No, not this time. So Trapper Ron baited and reset two
fresh traps. Trapper Ron said if he didn’t trap him this time, he’d
bring “Trapper” Erik, his son, and they’d get him from either the
fireplace or the rooftop.
My furry friend was so smart, it did go out to eat, but it went to
guess where… my garbage cans again! And then it came back in.
Trapper Ron came over the next day and moved the raccoon to a
position where it could be captured. And of course, I’m happy to be
rid of my new furry friend… and his two pals! I am sharing this long
story to tell you about raccoons. They are very smart and likeable.
Even though I have learned much about raccoons through this
experience, I am still very cautious about interacting with them. I
must also speak about Trapper Ron. I watched him from a front row
seat. In our case, the problem raccoon didn’t read the textbook.
There are many things about Trapper Ron which I really like. He
listens to you. He has an easy-going and pleasing personality. He
gives from himself. He wants to do the job. He wants to work quickly
on a very reasonable timetable. He has the experience and he has the
equipment. If he needs a hand, he has Erik. And Erik seems to be
relaxed and competent in this job too! If you need to have an animal
removed, Trapper Ron will do it, answer your questions and maybe
tell you a story too! Now I can concentrate on my Wedding
Photography…or should I try Pet Photography?
