Humane Way To Repel Or Catch Rodents
Is there a humane way to repel or catch rodents that doesn’t put our dog at risk?
A good alternative to using poison, glue traps or other forms of rodent control is a humane, live trap. You can purchase these traps at your local pest control service, and they can be baited with peanut butter, grains or nuts. When the rat tries to access the food, the trapdoor closes, leaving the rat trapped but unharmed.
It’s important to check the traps often, as rodents have high metabolic rates, which can lead to starvation and/or fatal dehydration. After the rat is caught, he should be relocated away from your homein a park or wooded areaso he will not return.
