Worcester Rat Removal Tip: Getting a Rat Out of a Dumpster
Rats are quite common in urban areas. There is plenty of food, water and shelter which is all they need to survive. Rats live to eat and reproduce, and urban areas are heavily populated with rats.
Rats scurry and scamper into many things looking for food. It is not uncommon to come across a rat in a dumpster. They crawl around looking for food and inevitably fall in. The problem is that most dumpsters have smooth sides. There is nothing for them to sink their claws into to help them out.
This means you have a couple of options. You can let nature takes its course and leave it in there. The rat will feast on whatever you throw away. Of course, you'll probably get the heeby-geebies every time you toss the trash. You'll also run the risk of the rat jumping out at some point when the trash is high enough and you open the top.
However, if trash day is right around the corner then its no big deal. The large trash truck will come dump the bin and everything that's in it. Voila! No more rat. If this is too much for you to handle, then there are other alternatives.
Getting Them Unstuck
If your conscious gets the best of you and good deeds are your thing, there are some things you can do to get the little rodents out of the dumpster.
Since the sides of the dumpster are smooth, there is nothing for them to hold onto and climb out. It doesn't take much to give their furry little butts a boost.
Sometimes a well-placed board will do the trick. Simply lodge it in there at an angle so the rat can reach the top and walk away. In an hour or two, it will probably be gone.
Another useful technique is fabric. Get some type of fabric and drape it over the side of the dumpster. This gives the rat something to hold onto as it climbs out. They are great climbers and won't have any trouble.
You will likely have to leave for them to do their thing. They like to avoid humans. It is also important to note that they are nocturnal, so they are more active at night.
Rats will become aggressive and attack if they feel cornered. They will certainly be cornered in a dumpster so don't forget to wear protective equipment. That means thick gloves with a long cuff that protects the forearm. They carry a lot of diseases that are easily transmittable to humans.
