Little Rock Rat Removal Tip: Using A One-Way Exclusion Funnel To Remove Rats Without Trapping Them
Rats are destructive little rodents. They take up residence in your home and chew on everything in their path as they scavenge for food. They cause thousands of dollars-worth of damage annually.
When this happens, people go in search of ways to remove rats from their homes. This is a lengthy and tedious process, no matter which method you choose. The three main methods of rat removal include snap traps, live traps and exclusion funnels.
Exclusion funnels are a great option for those who opt for a humane approach to rat removal. It's a no kill approach which does not involve the hassle of handling and relocating the rodents. So, just what are exclusion funnels and are they effective?
One-Way Exclusion Funnels
One-way exclusion funnels are made from a cone-shaped mesh wire which rats cannot chew through. The large end of the cone is placed over the main rat entry way to the residence after all other entries have been properly sealed.
Rats travel through the mesh wire cone to leave the residence out of the smaller end. They can easily leave but the small wire mesh does not allow the rats to re-enter your residence. It does take a decent amount of research, some trial and error and a little luck to utilize this method effectively.
One-way exclusion funnels are used to remove a number of different rodents from a residence. The size of the funnel is adjusted according to the size of the animal. People love the no-kill approach that tends to be hands-off.
The Problem With Exclusion Funnels
The mesh wire cone must be just the right size to be effective. People often leave the small opening too big, assuming it is necessary for the rats to get out. When the opening is too large, then they have no trouble simply going right back in.
Another issue with these exclusion funnels is that they just pour the rats right back into your yard, leaving you quite likely to have the same issue again in the future. There are some jurisdictions where it is illegal to kill rats and exclusion funnels are perfect for these areas.
Utilizing an exclusion funnel successfully can be a challenge, especially if you've never done it before. However, there are many online tutorials to help you approach the process correctly. You can always call a professional and ask them to utilize an exclusion funnel for you if the issue proves to be too challenging to conquer successfully.
