Tallahassee Rat Removal Tip: Should I Use Poison To Kill A Rat?
At some point in your lifetime, you will probably come across some species of rat in your dwelling. Be it rented, or purchased, it's just a numbers game and it will probably happen.
You will be left wondering about the best way to eliminate them from your property. You may spend hours scouring the internet before you find yourself in the grocery store, contemplating the rows of poisons lining the shelves.
Rat poisons are never a good option and they just aren't that effective either. There are several reasons why using rat poison is never a good idea. You may be familiar with some of them.
A Bad Idea
Rat poisons are made of several harmful chemicals. These chemicals are detrimental to the environment and to other wildlife. If that isn't reason enough, they also put children and household pets at risk. Rats will usually eat rat poisons. However, some poisons may not be effective against all rats. Some species may be more vulnerable than others and some rats can just be plain resistant to poisons.
When rats ingest poisons, they do not die immediately. Household pets may catch the rats in an effort to play and can become fatally ill. The poisons are also excreted in their defecation, littering the area with toxic chemicals that may come in contact with children or pets.
When the poisons are effective, these rodents die a slow and agonizing death. Sometimes they die of dehydration or starvation from constant vomiting and diarrhea. It is a horrible and painful way to go. Since the death is a slow one, the rats typically crawl into some hidden area to meet their demise. This leaves dark basement and attic corners especially vulnerable, making their carcasses difficult to find and retrieve.
After these rodents have died, the carcasses must be removed, and their living areas need to be thoroughly cleaned to remove pheromones. This can be nearly impossible if you don't know where to find them.
In addition, the carcasses will begin to smell after a few short days. It is not a smell that can be ignored. This is a gut-wrenching stench that will not go away. What's worse is that blowflies will settle on the dead carcasses to lay their eggs.
If the dead rats are not removed in a timely fashion, you could be dealing with a horrible stench and an infestation of another kind. These blowflies lay hundreds of eggs at a time. As the eggs mature, they will also infest your home.
Poisons are never a good option for eradicating rats from your home. There are always other options, including professional services that will remove the rats once they have been trapped.
