Rats can be some of the trickiest animals to trap. They are cautious, intelligent, and very aware of their surroundings. If you do manage to trap a rat, they can become very aggressive and thrash out at you, putting you and your family in danger. If you have rats in your home, it’s best to hire a professional, like the ones at Critter Control® Gainesville, to trap them.
The Problem with DIY Trapping
Once you see a rat in your home, you’ll want it out immediately. However, attempting to catch a rat yourself can prove not only exhausting but dangerous to your and your family. Here are some reasons DIY trapping is difficult:
- Because of their intelligence, rats can sense when their surroundings change, so they don’t fall easily to traps
- Traps should be set around high-traffic areas, which can be located in hard to reach places like walls or in the attic.
- Touching a rat, a rat’s home or its droppings can spread a variety of horrible diseases.
- If a rat is caught, it can become extremely aggressive
