About Pest Animal Hartford County and Our Services:
As soon as you find a rodent somewhere on your property, you will most likely start thinking about how to remove it. If the animal is inside your home, you can try using the exclusion method, but in the case of smaller rodents or those outside of your home, trapping is a much more common solution. Before you trap a rodent or do anything else to it, however, you will need to make sure it is legal to do so in your area.
Check Your Regulations
Unfortunately, there is no hard and fast rule across the country about whether or not you can legally trap a rodent. Each area has their own set of rules and they can vary greatly. Some areas let you trap rodents if you plan on killing them or releasing them on your property. Others won't let you trap them at all. You should always check your local restrictions before making a decision.
Rats And Mice
In most cases, it will be legal to trap a mouse or rat on your property, but once again, you should check your local laws before doing so. There may be some restrictions on whether or not you can trap them, including based on the specific type of rat or mouse and whether babies are present or if the animal is being a nuisance. Washington, D.C. for example, only lets you trap and relocate rats and squirrels, meaning you cannot use lethal traps. You may have heard the rumor that you need a hunting license to use a mousetrap in certain states like California, but this is just a rumor.
States tend to have slightly more restrictions on larger rodents such as squirrels. California, for example, does require a permit to trap them. Most states will not actually let you trap squirrels without some sort of paperwork. In cases where you can trap squirrels, you are frequently required to kill them and dispose of the animal yourself.
How To Be Sure
The best way to be sure that you only take legal actions against rodents on your property is to hire a professional. Wild removal experts will be familiar with all the local regulations and laws so you don't have to worry about getting in legal trouble. In cases where trapping a rodent isn't legal, a professional will be able to provide you with a humane and legal alternative.
