    Greene Wildlife Tip:
    Does Poison Make Rats Thirsty So That They Die Outside?

    This is a myth that is commonly raised by many people who advocate using rat poison as an appropriate method of dealing with a rat problem, but the reality in this particular situation is that the myth is actually directly the opposite to the reality. Poison does certainly kill the rat, but the natural instinct for a rat that is suffering and in pain is to return to an area where it feels safe so that is can try to survive the symptoms that it is suffering, and in most cases these places will not be outside.

    Different Types Of Poison

    There are different types of poison that are used to kill rats, and many of these do cause dehydration, but while they may cause the rat to become disorientated and some rats may end up dying outside, the evidence suggests that rats are more likely to die in or around their nests after consuming poison. While there are different types of poison available such as those that cause internal bleeding or those that cause calcium crystals to form within the rat's bloodstream, none of these will case a rat to try and go outside to die.

    The Symptoms Dying Rats May Experience

    Dying from rat poison is likely to be hugely painful for the rat, as there is not really a rat poison that is commercially available that gives the rat a pain free death. Anticoagulant poisons will usually take around one to two weeks to kill the animal, where the pain increases until the rat eventually dies of exhaustion, while those that cause hypercalcemia will cause crystals to form in the blood stream of the rat, with symptoms such as heart problems, kidney failure, internal bleeding and intense pain usually increasing gradually over the period of a week.

    Dealing With Rat Carcasses

    Once you have killed the rats, you will have to spend time looking for the carcass and then removing it, whether it lies inside the attic or wall cavity or in your yard or garden. Carcasses will quickly start to decay and to smell, and this is why it is important to find and remove them otherwise they will attract other pest animals. When you have found the carcass, you should then either incinerate it or double bag it and put it in the garbage for collection along with the rest of your trash.

    What Kind Of Damage Do Rats Cause In An Attic?

    One of the biggest problems that people will need to deal with if they have a rat infestation in the attic is cleaning and repairing the attic, and many people will underestimate quite how much damage a rat can cause if it has been in the attic for some time. The natural behavior of rats does not work well with human dwellings, and there are several different areas where they can cause a significant amount of damage.

    Gnawed And Chewed Wires

    This is one of the most dangerous areas, as rats naturally have front teeth that continue to grow throughout their lives, so they constantly gnaw in order to ensure that those teeth are regularly worn down. When they do this by chewing and gnawing electrical wires, then they can affect the electrical supply to your home, or in some cases these exposed wires can even become a fire hazard, so it is important that these are swiftly replaced.

    Soiled Insulation

    Insulation material is another important part of the energy efficiency of any home, but rats will usually be indiscriminate about where they deposit their droppings and urine, and when it is heavily soiled it can be unsafe to leave the insulation in place. The feces can often work its way into the soft layers of material used in insulation, and it can be almost impossible to get this out, which is why it is best to remove the insulation and put a fresh layer in place.

    Entry Points Into The Attic

    Rats are naturally going to look for as many possible escape routes in and out of their nest as possible, and while they will start with only one or two ways in and out, they will often gnaw and chew several more entry points. These will also need to be repaired, as there are pheromones in the rat grease that becomes smudged around these holes, and this will also attract rats.

    Wooden Beams In The Attic

    In the vast majority of cases the gnawing of the rats will not cause serious damage to the wooden beams in your attic, but it is still worth checking this to make sure that your attic is still structurally sound. Even if repairs aren't required, making sure they are thoroughly cleaned and sprayed with a disinfectant will help to ensure that the damage caused by the rats doesn't contaminate the area permanently.   If you need Greene raccoon removal, rat trapping, squirrel removal, or have any questions about a wildlife problem in Greene, please give Fur and Feathers Wildlife Control a call at 518-430-0060, and we will listen to your problem, give you a price quote, and schedule an appointment, usually same day or next day, to solve the problem.
