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.

This month's featured Georgia Wildlife Article: Can a Dead Animal Cause Any Diseases or Health Problems?

There are definitely some risk factors involved with the dead Atlanta animals and their carcasses. This is because it has been biologically and chemically proven that after death of an animal, there are certain bacteria and germs which start decomposing the flesh and all the nutrients present in the cells of animals especially in their gut. As a result a lot of germs and smell are released from the dead body of animal which get infiltrated into the air as well. The only solution and safe remedy to avoid all the foul smelling gases being released from the carcass of the body of animals is that it should be buried or cremated so that the gases and fumes of the poisonous gases and germs may not be released in the open atmosphere. Sometimes the quickly decomposed bodies of the Georgia animals are covered and overwhelmed by the disasters as well. But that happens only once in a blue moon. Therefore one has to look for the immediate remedies in order to get done with the dead bodies of the animals especially if these are found in or near the domestic installments.

Causes of animal death
Normally a Georgia animal death and demise as a result of natural reasons or falling prey to other animals is a common thing in wild. There is also no problem regarding the decomposition issues and the release of foul smelling and unhealthy gases. This is because the forest atmosphere is open and the activity of scavengers also helps a lot in getting done with the animals’ bodies. Moreover this also adds a lot of rich organic material to the soil of forest which leads to the flourishing growth of grasses and plants.

In case of domestic installments, there may be demise of either a pet animal or any wild animal intruding into the houses. The most common cause of the animal death in urban areas is the roads kill incidents. Especially at nights the Atlanta animals may get collapsed and struck by the vehicles on roads resulting in their death.

Health concerns form animals’ dead bodies
A lot of health risks and concerns are involved with the release of gases and fumes released from the dead bodies of Atlanta animals. This can be a major health risk especially when it regards to spreading of many lethal diseases.
