Tampa Rat Removal Tip: If I Relocate A Rat, Will It Survive
Rat trapping is no doubt a necessary evil. Letting the population explode just isn't an option and natural predators often aren't enough to control the numbers. Couple that with the fact that rats often live near people and you've got a recipe for disaster.
There are many ways to go about controlling a rat population. Many seek to eradicate them from homes and gardens while others just don't want to see them at all. Calling a service who is experienced in dealing with rats is often easier than trying to do things yourself.
DIY Rat Control and Relocation
DIY rat control is no easy feat. These little rodents are highly intelligent and even more persistent. Letting them go outside your home means you run the risk of them finding their way back into your home.
The truth is that rats very rarely travel more than three hundred feet away from their den or nest, during the day or night. They tend to live in groups and are not very adventurous in the way of exploring.
Rats also establish hierarchies among themselves. Dominant rats get the most food and reproduction rights with the females. Newly relocated rats often endure trauma as they try to fit in with a new group. They almost always end up submissive and are so traumatized that they refuse to eat even with open access to food sources.
When rats are removed from their environment, they have a very small chance of survival. They do not know where to find food or water and must endure harsh competition from local rat populations. In addition, they are unfamiliar with the predators of the territory.
Rat Relocation is Pointless
Relocating rats is a fruitless effort that produces minimal results. It is basically a waste of time because most rats will die quickly after being relocated. Sure, it may give you a warm and fuzzy feeling because you think you did your part, but rat relocation is pointless.
Rats take up residence in your home because they have free access to food and water without predators. Your attic or basement makes for a warm shelter that keeps them hidden and safe.
However, you must address your rat problem, or you will end up with an infestation. Rats can reproduce up to six times per year under the right conditions.
