Humane Rat Removal Methods
- Find and block their entry
Look around your home and yard for holes and cracks. Make sure to seal them. Finding their entry point will block them from getting into your house.
- Make your house less attractive
Keep your house and surroundings clutter-free. Let there be no food sources. Feed your pet inside and do not leave any food outside. Keep the garbage bin way outside your house and keep the bin lid closed tight. Make sure to keep your home and its surroundings clean.
- Use natural rat eradicators
Having a cat or owls is another way to remove rats from your house and its premises. These are the natural predators of rats. Rats can sense the danger and keep themselves away.
- Use a non-lethal rat trap
Buy humane rat traps that can be kept near the rat entry or on their travel path. These traps will catch the rat and later allow you to release them. Completely humane. Another type of trap that kills them almost instantly is the very old spring trap. The choice is yours.
- Buy ultrasonic rat repellents
The ultrasonic waves emitted by these repellents are unbearable to rats, thus keeping them away from your premises. You can keep them in the areas where you saw some damage or believe to be their entry point. In only a few days, rats will relocate, making your home rodent-free.
