Fort Worth Rat Removal Tip: How do you remove a rat stuck in a dumpster?
Rats have the annoying habit of crawling into very small spaces where they sometimes can get stuck and not be able to get out. This situation can be made extremely difficult in case these animals die in such spaces. This is because of the possible health hazards that come with the rotting carcass and the unpleasant stench that also emanates from the same.
A dumpster is luckily not one of these spaces that are difficult to get rats out of. If anything, it is quite easy to get rats out of one as compared to achieving the same feat in a wall for instance. Once a rat gets into a dumpster, it may face a challenge getting out for the simple reason that the dumpster walls are usually smooth and the dumpster is also not full enough for it to be able to jump in and out as it pleases. This means that the rat claws that it uses to climb up and down spaces may not be handy in helping the animal crawl out of the dumpster.
Not being able to climb out of a dumpster by itself will make a rat quite frantic and even panicky in some cases. Rats are quite intelligent and they can tell when they are trapped and feel duress. This is why when trying to get one out of a dumpster, you may need to be very careful so that it doesn't interpret your actions as a potential attack and react aggressively in retaliation.
One of the ways in which you can help this little animal out of the dumpster is by placing a piece of wood at an elevated angle from the bottom of the dumpster all the way to the entrance. This will make it easier for the rat to climb onto the piece of wood and out of the dumpster. You can also replace the piece of wood with a piece of cloth, or sack and still get the rat to climb out.
Throwing in more trash into the dumpster may also offer the rat a way through which they can jump out but that may take a while. These methods may work especially if you have no intention to kill the rat because once it is out of the dumpster, there is no doubt that it will scamper away as fast as possible, maybe even right into your house. This is not a situation that you would like to be in.
For that reason, you may want to get the rat out of the dumpster and out of the vicinity as well. The most efficient way to do this is to set a trap in the dumpster using some peanut butter as bait and letting the rat get caught in it. You can then take the rat to animal rehabilitators who will then decide what to do with it without letting it back into the open where it might just continue being a menace.
