Memphis Wildlife Tip:
How to kill rats in a house -People think that to kill rats in a house you must put out handfuls of poison and set out random traps. This is not the correct way to go about killing rats. First, poison is not what you want to use. Poison manufacturers make millions of dollars off of homeowner suffering. What really happens with poison-if the rats eats it at all-is that the rats die somewhere inside of your home. Wherever it is that these animals draw their last breaths, this is where the body will remain until you find it and remove it. And yes, if you want that smell of death to go away, you will have to find the body and remove it. For the best way to kill rats in a house, you will want to use a snap trap. There are a few different models on the market, but the idea is the same. A rat is killed when it triggers the pressure plate and a bar springs forward, breaking the animal's neck. This method is fast and humane; much more humane than traps like glue traps. Prior to any form of trapping, proper home repair should be accomplished. Rats are entering the building through a hole in the exterior. If you do not repair this area, more rats wil enter the building during or after the trapping process.

Animal Services - Memphis and the Truth about Cats and Dogs

The City Council has become so concerned about the DOG and the MEMPHIS protest group called the Animal Defense League that it has approved a plan which provides taxpayer dollars for surveillance equipment at the private homes of animal services employees. For more information, call the animal services of Memphis, Tennessee.

With high tech cameras, these workers can weed out door-to-door salesmen and pesky in-laws-again on the taxpayer's dime--under the pretense that the big bad wolf, also known as the animal activist, might show up with a feral cat flyer, order them a fake cab or protest on the sidewalk with a sign. Shelby County animal control says it will continue to help with domestic animal issues, but not with Tennessee wildlife problems.

Although city workers have a right to feel safe, this measure amounts to another questionable use of limited resources for a city that had 31,000 violent crimes last year. Animal and carcass removal services in Shelby County is dedicated to helping Tennessee and Memphis.

The mayor continues to react to the "DOG threat." He recently removed Erika The Wild Animal Expert from the Memphis Animal Commission and replaced her with surveillance expert Glenn S. The Cat and Dog Exterminator. Shelby County animal services in Memphis, Tennessee, declined to comment on the matter.

Remember, for a dog/cat problem, call (901) 362-5310, and if you need wildlife removal service in Shelby County, call TruTech, Inc.: 901-584-0114.
