New York is full of wildlife, including snakes, squirrels, raccoons, skunks, opossums, and more. Wildlife removal is a complex field. I recommend professional Warren County wildlife control services if you want to solve a critter problem legally and correctly. For example, we specialize in animals in the attic, which have broken into the house and almost always have a nest of baby animals. It is necessary to perform correct preventative repairs to keep pest animals a out of your house for good. We perform full building inspection, do the the repairs and we also offer attic decontamination if necessary. Rats and mice love to live in attics, and can chew wires or leave droppings. Some Warren County animals frequently enter homes, and correct removal is not a simple task.
DOG or CAT: If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local
the County Animal Control
for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, vaccinations, licenses,
pet adoption, lost pets, and more. If you have a wildlife problem, you can try calling the the County animal control, and see what they have to
say, but they will certainly not help you with a complex wildlife problem such as critters in your attic. They are a free government agency that
helps with dog and cat issues only.

Warren County Wildlife Tip:
Do Rats Make Good Pets?
Considering there are thousands of people across the country who choose to keep rats as pets, it is fair to say that rats actually do make quite good pets. However, it is important to make the distinction between rats that have been bred in captivity for generations particularly for the pet market, and rats that are pest animals that forage food from garbage. If you do wish to have a rat as a pet, ensure that you purchase it from a pet shop or reputable breeder.
Rats are actually quite clever animals, and those that have been domesticated will enjoy playing games and having toys within their cage that keep them active and give them a puzzle before they are given a reward or treat. If you are keeping two or more male rats together they will usually get along after a few weeks, although there is often some fighting as they struggle for dominance over each other.
Friendliness Of Domesticated Rats
When it comes to handling and interacting with a pet rats, they will often be quite happy being handled, although other rats that are not so used to being handled or are handled roughly may bite if given the opportunity. This is not so much of a concern however, as the rats that are bred and live indoors do not have the same range of diseases and parasites that are a particular problem to wild rats.
Lifespan And Diet
There are a range of different foods that are produced to help keep rats healthy and happy as pets, and these are usually purchased from your local pet store, and the place where you purchase your rat will also offer good advice on choosing a diet, and mixing in fresh fruit and vegetables with the processed food. Rats will generally live less than a year in the wild, but those that are kept in captivity usually have a lifespan of between two and three years.
Can You Keep Orphaned Rats As Pets?
The difficulty with keeping rats is that those that have been born in the wild are much more likely to carry diseases and parasites than those bred to be kept as pets. It is best to avoid keeping orphaned rats as pets, as nature is likely to be a bigger factor than nurture in the way that they interact with you, so unless you have a great expertise in dealing with orphaned rats, this shouldn't be an option that you should consider.

What To Do About A Rat On The Roof
Rats are a species that have adapted to living alongside people in the different environments where they have settled, and there are many rat species that have an excellent climbing ability that will allow them to get on to the roof regularly if they are allowed to. If you do find a rat on the roof, one of the first things you will need to do is to make sure that you get it off as soon as possible, otherwise there is a possibility that it will find a way to get into your attic space. Indeed, once you have got the rat off the roof in the first instance, it is still a wise precaution to carry out an inspection of your attic to see if there is a rat's nest present.
The Climbing Skills Of Rats
This is often an area where people underestimate rats, but they are actually very clever creatures, with the lighter species of rats particularly good at scampering up drainpipes, brickwork and other wall materials to get to the roof. While the most common species of rat, the Norway rat will prefer to look for nesting spots at ground level, they can still climb to the roof, but are not as agile due to their heavier bodies. Black rats however are excellent climbers, and live in trees in the wild, while they have adapted to live in barns, houses and other buildings, climbing their way to nests above ground level.
Getting The Rat Off The Roof
Because rats are generally quite cautious animals, they will usually look to escape if you come near them, so if you do have a skylight or a window in the roof, then yelling or putting your head through that window will usually get the rats off the roof. Climbing on to the roof should only be done if you have the right support, but if you can get up there safely, a broom or long stick can be used to usher the rats off the roof, although they will usually flee before you can get the broom close to the animal.
Checking Your Attic For A Rat Infestation
Once the rat has been removed from the roof, it is also worth investigating to see if there are any signs of a rat infestation in your attic or loft space, as this can sometimes be the reason why the rat was on the roof in the first place. Make sure you take precautions including a breathing mask and gloves, and look for signs such as small brown rat droppings and small holes around the roof line that the rat could be using to get in and out.
