Rats are cute creatures unless they do not start messing-up with your house and start damaging your property. There can be many ways in which the rats can be a threat to your property. There are many incidents reported when the rats have been seen chewing up the chain saw oil thereby damaging it. In other instances the rats have also been observed contaminating the chicken coop with their droppings and in this way they can also spread infestations. In the most severe and worst cases, the rats have been observed to threaten of biting the baby. All these situations are simply irresistible and one has to think of the measures in order to catch the rats by different means. There are different kinds of traps both lethal and humane which can help you to eradicate the rats out of your house and get rid of them permanently. Basically killing the rat cannot be the ultimate solution because all the rats cannot be killed by using different methods and killed rats invite more infestations and a lot of germs in your house. Therefore the idea of direct killing the rats is very insane and not at all applicable.
Therefore one has to look for humane ways in order to get rid of rats.
Make the house rat proof
This method can be adopted in such places where the rats have been restricted themselves to some specific locations. There are certain areas in the house where the rats are causing a real problem. In these cases you can simply avoid their entry and intrusion by applying the rodent repellent sprays. This technique will be able to get your property and possessions rat proof.
Get the rat terrier
Although some people consider is a inhumane way but it may not always be like that. You can keep the cat in your house just to make the rats run away and get scared. Every time it is not meant to catch the rats and hunt on them. However this option cannot work out in the places where you have already applied poison because it can also threaten the life of a cat as well.
Conventional spring trap
This is among the most humane options of catching the rat alive and then getting rid of it. Usually people set the spring traps without knowing of the existence of rats and mice but when they get trapped inside. Then people may also be alarmed and relieved at the same time.
