Because they are so intelligent and aware of their surroundings, rats are some of the trickiest critters to trap. However, if they are caught, rats become extremely and can even lash out, putting you and your family in danger of catching fatal diseases. If you have rats in your home, it’s best to contact a professional to remove them. Our expert rat removers at Critter Control® and ready and willing to help you with all of your rat-related needs.
DIY Trapping: Why It’s Tricky
The initial reaction to finding a rat in your home is to remove it in whatever way possible. But attempting to catch a rat and especially touching a rat is extremely dangerous, and should not be attempted by someone who is not trained on how to do it properly. Here are more reasons DIY trapping may not be your best option:
- Rats do not fall quickly to traps; they can sense when their surroundings change and will avoid them
- Touching a rat or its droppings can spread diseases
- If caught, rats become very aggressive
- Traps need to be placed in high-traffic areas which are hard to reach, such as within walls and attics.
