Seattle Rat Removal Tip: Does poison make rats thirsty and die outside?
The short and simple answer to this question is no, not at all. Poison will not make rats thirsty, let alone drive them to go and die outside. This is one of those ridiculous myths that sellers of the rat poison may peddle around to lure you into buying their brand of poison. In fact, you should know that poison will make a bat run into hiding to go and recollect and try to figure out what is wrong with them.
Most rat poisons are anti-coagulants. This means that they will act by reducing the ability of the blood to clot. This will result in damages to the capillaries of the rat and cause internal bleeding that will in turn result in death. Dehydration does not, at any given point occur as a result of the poison.
Just like human beings and other animals, in case of injuries, rats will retreat into hiding to try and stay safe from further aggression from potential predators while in their vulnerable state. They will feel safe while in hiding and maybe even die in there, much to your great disadvantage as you wait for them to come out to get a drink of water.
Another common myth that has been spread around regarding rat poison is that it is more efficient than trapping. This is also not true. The poison my kill the rat in a place where the carcass will not be easily accessible and then you will have even more problems getting it out. In comparison, if you set a trap and it catches the rats, you will be able to dispose of them quite easily. Poisons are also not as fast acting as they come. The most lethal type of poison will only act in a day or two and again, the rat will not sit there and wait to die, it will go into hiding in its pain and suffering.
In addition, rat poison not only poisons rats and other rodents but human beings as well as pets. If you think about it, scientific and medical experiments are always done on rats and the results are assumed to be replicated on human beings. This means that if it is lethal to the rats, it will also be lethal to you and your pets and therefore you should avoid them.
Rats will also hardly ever die outside, unless they get caught in a trap outside or they were living outdoors in the first place. Rats may live outdoors but never somewhere open where they can easily be spotted. This should tell you that anyone claiming that a rat poison will make a rat run outside and die is not being exactly truthful. Rats are secretive all through to the very end.
Before choosing rat poison as your method of dealing with the rat problem, it is therefore important to know all the side effects of the poison and just how the rats will behave once they have been exposed to the poison.
