There are rodents in your property and they are causing chaos. They are making a huge mess and they are being health hazards. You need them gone, for the sake of your home and your health.
Getting rid of them, though, is not always so easy. Your first course of action might be to contact the city or county animal services. They should, theoretically, fix the problem, right? After all, these are wild animals in your property and these services exist to remove them.
However, they are not going to do much when it comes to pests like rodents. In this situation, you are all on your own. You have to do it yourself or have a professional come in and remove them.
Getting assistance from the city for animal-related problems is not always easy. There are certain problems they will assist with, like stray dogs, but that is not the case for all wild animals. If you have rodents on your property, they are not going to capture or kill them. You will have to find another solution to the rodents if you want them gone. It does not matter what the situation is, the city does not handle pest control. If you want pest control services, you will have to speak with a specialized private company for that. The city does not do any type of pest control. They will only help for certain animal-related issues.
Finding a Solution
Instead of relying on the city, you will have to find a different solution to this problem. You can, again, look to professional services. Professional services are the only option if you want to have someone else come in and do the work. Another option is to do it yourself. Rat removal is doable for anyone, whether you want to kill them or use a no-kill method, so you should have no trouble managing it. With some research, you can know what to do and move through the process easily. If you have any type of rodent problem, do not rely on the city to handle it. They are not going to offer any type of pest control services to you. If you want the rodents gone, you will have to go through a private company for pest control services or you will have to do the work yourself. Both can work well, depending on whom or what you choose.
