Tampa Mice and Rat Removal

Why You Shouldn’t Use Rat Poison

photo 1You’d think DIY rat removal would be an easy task, but guess again. Homeowners who try to do rat trapping and rat removal on their own can find themselves with a real mess on their hands.

Take this homeowner, for instance. After they noticed rats had invaded their garage and chewed holes in their cabinets and storage bins, they decided get rid of them. On top of that, they went to their local hardware store and picked up a box of rat poison to finish the job.

That was a mistake. By lacing their entire garage with poisoned bait, they were endangering themselves, their kids and their pets. Rat poison is designed to be odorless, tasteless and deadly in small doses. Kids who put things in their mouths on a regular basis, and pets who gobble up whatever they see are particularly at risk.

At the same time, rats are very smart. They’re scavengers and will only eat things in small bites. If they don’t get sick, they come back and eat more. For this reason, rat poison is not as effective as you might think. The same thing goes for mice, and if you have one mouse, then mouse trapping is going to be in your future.

Our advice about DIY rat removal is simple: Don’t do it. Rat trapping and mouse trapping should be done by a professional with the proper equipment, trained in the best methods for mice trapping and rat trapping. Call us for a free consultation, and we’ll help you solve your rat and mice trapping issue, quickly and efficiently, without the use of toxic chemicals.

photo 2You’ve had your home inspection, drawn up the bids and contracts, and signed on the dotted line. You’re ready to move into your new home.

Except there’s one thing you’ve forgotten in the rush of details involving the biggest move of your life. You forgot the animal inspection!

That’s what happened to this unfortunate lady. Shortly after moving in, she noticed dropping and scratching sounds in her walls and attic. She immediately called us for our free animal inspection to find out what was going on.

Sure enough, there were rats in the house that had been there for years. This photo shows rat tracks in the dust of her attic. Apparently, the previous owner tried to cover up evidence of rats in the house, hoping she wouldn’t have a home inspection for animal problems. He did a little spot-painting and cleaning, and the trick was successful. She didn’t notice the problem until it was too late to make him pay for the cleanup.

Fortunately, this homeowner called us. We quickly identified what kind of rodent was causing the problem. We were able to find out where they were getting in, close up their points of entry and trap out the pesky critters, one by one. We also cleared out their nests and droppings, leaving her home clean and free of undesirable animals. She is now the happy owner of a rodent-free home, and wiser for the experience.

An animal inspection is a critical part of the general home inspection that comes before the sale. Our free animal inspection can save a lot of time and headaches for busy new homeowners. Call us today, and we’ll come right out!

I Love my Job













It’s not every day you see something like this at 12:30 in the afternoon. Deer, grazing in the middle of Lakewood Ranch! I snapped a picture on my way to a consultation the other day. This is one of the reasons I love my job. At any hour of the day or night I get to see wildlife. Whether it’s deer eating plants by a retention pond or cranes and pelicans flying overhead, I never get tired of it.
Of course, seeing deer eating plants isn’t that great if they’re eating the plants in your yard, but that’s why it’s good to have the number of a reliable and professional wildlife removal service like mine. I can help you discourage deer from foraging in your landscape because I know what kind of plants and scents they don’t like. I can also trap them, if that’s what’s needed.

There’s a little downside to my work, though. I also do dead deer removal. If a deer’s been hit in front of your house, I’m the one to call. In my company, dead deer removal is done quickly and respectfully, taking care of the problem for you and your neighbors with a minimum of fuss. This service extends to all types of dead animal removal. From rodents indoors to birds, alligators, snakes, armadillos outdoors or any poor creature with bad luck, we take care of them all.

Few things are as messy and sad as dead animal removal. That’s why a picture like this reminds me why I love my job. After a long day, or even the start of one, the sight of deer, calmly grazing without a worry in the world, just makes the day better!
