DIY Rat and Mouse Removal - Knoxville, TN
Can I Get Rid of Rats / Mice on my Own?
Perhaps you can, but there’s a big chance they will come back. If you don’t identify and seal all entry holes of rats, mice, and flying squirrels, they will come back. It’s also very important to clean up droppings and remove soiled insulation, etc. to prevent rat and mice borne diseases.
There are different types of traps for catching mice, rats, and flying squirrels so be aware of this when you go to your local hardware store.
Wildlife removal specialists are equipped to catch rats, mice & flying squirrels in your home or yard too.

Don’t Try to Poison Roof Rats, Mice or Flying Squirrels in Your Home or Attic.
Why? Because it’s natural for poisoned rodents and wildlife to find a dark space somewhere else in your home and die. They want to curl up in a nice small, warm and dark place to live their final days. Then you have to find where the stench of the decomposing rodent is coming from and remove the dead rodent!
Most mice and rat poisons take days and weeks to work. Once they die, secondary poisoning will occur. This is when other animals find the dead animal and they come into contact with it! They can chew on or play with the carcass, ingesting some of the poison, and spreading it to your children or pets, sick or elderly in your home, along with your water supply, soils in your home, and plant matter!
Remember: If you trap roof rats, mice and flying squirrels inside
your Knoxville-area home, but don’t seal up all entry holes for the
rodents, new rodents will continue to enter your home.
