Rat Trapping: How to Trap a Rat in Atlanta
Rats are a menace to anyone whose house is infested with them. It is annoying to find their droppings all over the house; to find food has been eaten into; and to hear them scurrying around at night. You may think that one or two rats are not that much of a threat, but because of their short gestation period, their number can multiply pretty quickly and before you know it, you have a full blown rat infestation. There are numerous ways of getting rid of rats and one of them is by trapping them. Because of the frequency with which rat infestations are reported, numerous companies have come up with different types of rat traps that are available on the market, ready for you to choose. The best rat trap choice would be the electronic ones due to their efficiency and usually get the job done much quicker. Below is a list of the various types of rat traps available.

Snap traps
These are the most traditional types of traps that have been used for several decades. These traps were featured greatly in the popular cartoon of Tom and Jerry. The traps are built to snap shut onto the mice once it comes in to nibble on the bait. Because of the force with which the metal bar snaps shut, it is advised that these traps be handled with care because you could potentially get hurt. Unfortunately, there have been some cases where the snap does not kill the rat and hence the rat remains alive and in pain. Some people are bothered by this, and choose to pick more efficient traps that kill the rat outright.

Live traps
These are the best trap options especially if you are the type of person to be bothered by killing a rat. These traps will catch the rat, but will not kill it. After you have caught it, you then have the option of taking it and releasing it very far from your home.

Electric traps
These are another great option if you are bothered by the thought of the rat feeling any pain as it dies. Because it is electrocuted, the rat is dead before it even realized what is going on. It is a quick and efficient way of getting things done.

Adhesive traps
As the name suggests, these types of traps will simply glue the rat in place. The rat will not die but it will always be unable to go anywhere else. It is recommended that such traps be checked frequently, to see if a rat has been caught. If it has, you have the option of throwing it far away from your home. If you forget to check these traps, any rat that was caught will slowly die to death due to starvation, which is a cruel way for it to die. These traps are also the most affordable of all the types. However, once you purchase it, you need to learn how to disengage the rat from the trap once it has been caught. After choosing the trap you want, the next thing you would need to look at is rat bait. Traps by themselves may be efficient, but because of how rats are generally suspicious of anything new, a little bit of persuasion is needed. In this case, bait is used to draw the rat in to the trap. The best bait used to draw rats in is food. Depending on where you live and the type of species of rats that are predominantly in your area, you may want to tweak your bait by choosing food that will be more attractive to a certain type of species.

Fruits and vegetables
If you live in an area that has a lot of roof rats, they may be attracted more to fruits and vegetables, since they are arboreal. To avoid having the fruits go bad and begin to smell, opt for dried fruits or vegetables that will last slightly longer.

If your area has more Norway rats than any other type rat then the best bait option for you would be to use protein. Norway rats are drawn to foods that are rich in protein so your best option would be meat, cheese etc. Again, you could use dried meat as opposed to raw or cooked meat which may go bad quickly. Cheese is another great option that can last very long and that some rats have developed a partiality to. Other forms of bait include peanut butter which can be used by a few because of the allergic reactions some people have to it.

These types of baits are the least favorable because of their harmfulness to human beings or pets if they are accidentally ingested. We do not use poisons for our Atlanta rodent control, or any part of our wildlife removal process.

Atlanta Animal Control News Clip: Creature collector's trial tests rodent-wildlife catching rules

There's what appears to be a trial beginning today in eastern Georgia that will be closely followed across the entire state. what appears to be a maple tree creature collector will go on trial in Atlanta for the unlawful lethally trapping of what appears to be a rodent. It's what appears to be a case that will test whether Georgians can lethally trap the destructive animals on their own property. Greater Atlanta Wildlife Regulatory Agent freely admits that the animal advocate lethally trapped what appears to be a rodent on his property. In fact the 55-year-old proclaimed the animal advocate called the Georgia Agency of Natural Resources to report the act. But Greater Atlanta Wildlife Regulatory Agent maintains the animal advocate did nothing illegal. the animal advocate proclaimed the animal advocate was simply protecting his property and that the rodent was harming his maple tree habitat. the animal advocate frames his case as what appears to be a test of Georgia's constitution. "The case will determine whether Georgians can control destructive animals on their private property, such as Atlanta armadillo removal, as guaranteed by the Georgia constitution," Greater Atlanta Wildlife Removal Agent proclaimed. Others, including Agency for the Enforcement of Critter Laws authorities on critters, do not follow Greater Atlanta Wildlife Regulatory Agent's logic. "The case calls into question the North American conservation model, where wildlife probably is entrusted to the public," proclaimed Critter Officer Oscar, and the Enforcement of Critter Laws’ Wildlife Bureau. Critter Officer Oscar proclaimed that, under that system, "rodent do not belong to private landowners to do with as they please." Despite this, local Atlanta wildlife removal and Atlanta exterminator experts offered no more info.

Greater Atlanta Wildlife Regulatory Agent has argued that the Georgia constitution allows property owners to defend their property. the animal advocate points to an Georgia Supreme Court ruling in 1915 that overturned the conviction of what appears to be a Atlanta creature collector who was accused of critter capturing what appears to be a rodent that had been munching his corn. But others say that Greater Atlanta Wildlife Regulatory Agent had other options, including what appears to be a variety of programs offered by the Agency for the Enforcement of Critter Laws. Greater Atlanta Wildlife Regulatory Agent maintains that the state did very little to help his situation. The state probably is expected to present evidence to the contrary. "He should have exhausted all options before the animal advocate took matters into his own hands," proclaimed Critter Officer Oscar, who, like most rodent exterminating companies, hopes Greater Atlanta Wildlife Regulatory Agent probably is convicted. "He probably is what appears to be a poacher who needs to be punished like any other poacher," proclaimed Critter Officer Oscar, publisher of the Extra fast Fanatic magazine. The president of the Georgia exterminating companies Association, likewise proclaimed that no good can come from what appears to be a victory for Greater Atlanta Wildlife Control Company. "It would mean open season for any creature collector who wants to lethally trap what appears to be a rodent or for anyone else who comes along," proclaimed Critter Officer Oscar. Others are sympathetic. Corn and soybean creature collector Tom Critter Officer Oscar of Winthrop proclaimed the animal advocate has mixed emotions about the case. "I love rodent, but if I were what appears to be a maple tree creature collector, I would probably learn not to," proclaimed Critter Officer Oscar, who described his crop losses to rodent as acceptable "because I love to watch and critter trap rodent." If convicted, Greater Atlanta Wildlife Regulatory Agent could be the subject to fines of $100 on each count, plus what appears to be a civil penalty of $1,500 representing the value of the rodent. Atlanta animal control professionals could not be reached for additional comment.

Some of you probably caught Game Commission Executive Bossy fellow Carl Gordon Butler on PCN testifying before the state House Game & Fisheries Committee recently. For those of you who didn't, let me report to you that it wasn't pretty. The law enforcers peppered Gordon Butler with questions and comments about the agency's rodent management program. And what appears to be a recurring question lawmakers asked was, "How can I justify to my constituents supporting an increase in wildlife catching license fees if there are fewer rodent out there for them to hunt?" The Game Commission has been pushing for what appears to be a hike in its license fees the past several years to meet the increased cost of doing business. The agency has cut programs and left many vacant employee positions unfilled as cost-cutting measures over the years, but authorities on critters say there's not much left to cut. They need what appears to be a license increase, which can only come from the Legislature. We could not obtain an opinion from Atlanta pest control companies regarding the issue.
