Glenmont wildlife control tip of the month: Will repellents get a rodent out of the attic?
How to answer that Glenmont exterminator question, I think the only way is, depends on what you're using as a repellent and on the particular rodent you are trying to frighten off, some rodents particularly raccoons it is commonly thought cannot be scared by anything, not even a human with a gun. A lot of these animals if you live in an urban area have lost all fear of humans, and practically anything to do with the human world, including even big dogs and cats. There is a classic video online of a large tomcat sitting at his food bowl and eating, across the bowl from him is a raccoon, the cat will eat a piece of food and then smack the raccoon across the face with his front paw, all the raccoon does in response is to steal another piece of food out of the bowl, this video is up to 4 min. long and the raccoon shows no fear of either the cat or the person filming it.
Most Glenmont animal trapping animals have a healthy respect of human beings and just how dangerous we can be so if you couple that with something else they find either frightening or even better terrifying then nine out of ten animals will move on looking for somewhere easier to live. You can use something as simple as a Glenmont animal control battery-powered radio set on a talk station to deter some animals, just the sound of human voices that close will put them off completely, others of course will completely ignore it. The next most popular type of electronic repellent is a machine that puts out ultrasonic noise, you can't hear it but small animals supposedly can, however the FTC has labeled all such devices as a scam stating that they do nothing and have no affect on any wildlife.
A very effective deterrent for nocturnal Glenmont wildlife removal animals is to set up motion activated lights, these animals like to be in the dark and do not like it if every time they move their whole home is lit up for everyone to see them, including possibly some of their predators. The main other kind of repellent you can find on the market are ones that supposedly duplicate the smell of a predator, your spread this product around when the animal is trying to build a nest and it will supposedly convince them that a predator either lives there or has access, neither of which it is supposed to like, and after smelling the substance it will move on.
Two things that definitely do not work as Glenmont pest control rodent repellents in your attic are ammonia and mothballs, from what the professionals say you can spread is much more ammonia soaked cotton balls or rags and as many packets of mothballs as you like and if the animal wants to leave it'll leave and if it doesn't it won't, with the ammonia and the mothballs having no discernible influence on its decision.
