Shelby County, Memphis Rat Control Situation:
Hello, I have read your website thoroughly, and I have to say i am impressed. I firmly believe your method of sealing all entries and exits is the best way to go. My question is regarding sealing all entries with sheet metal. I was wondering if insulated foam in a can is effective as well? Obviously they can chew on it, but do you think they would chew ALL the way through it? Im only considering the foam because using sheet metal in the attic would be extremely time consuming and difficult to install in certain areas. Thanks. Any advice is greatly appreciated
Hello. Found your site on web. Great info! Got rats in attic. Put out big victor rat snap traps. Catching rats nightly. However, many times the trap is sprung but no rat. Also, last week I caught a small rat and decided to dispose of it next morning. When I went back into attic the next morning, the dead rat was gone... This is spooky as I think something is taking the dead rats out of the traps during the night. (Traps will be sprung, and moved a few feet away from original placement site). We have a cat, but don't think he's getting up there. Do rats eat dead rats? Or maybe the rats are too big to be caught by the Victor snap traps? Any help or insight appreciated. I live in an affluent suburb east of Memphis.

Memphis Rat Control Tip of The Week
Why Do Pest Control Companies Do A Bad Job With Poisons When It Comes To Removing Rats?
Aside from not being able to get all the rats, there are many reasons why we don't feel satisfied when a pest control company uses poison in removing rats. At times, things end up worse than they were, with other issues coming up. Using poison on rats brings about more jobs for you as a homeowner.
Think of the poisoned rats that die in the open - what happened to them? The poisons used by pest control companies lead to massive internal bleeding. The affected rodents often end up bleeding out and dying anywhere the poison takes full effect. Imagine getting rid of the rat, and later having to deal with a bloody rat lying on your kitchen counter or your carpet?
This makes you feel like the pest control company has done an incomplete job. You will be forced to put on your gloves, grab a collection tool, and a plastic bag to collect the dead rats.
Aside from that, there might be some blood splotches to clean up. This needs to be done properly, as they pose a health risk to the household. After going through all this, you are faced with the problem of how to safely get rid of the bag - having a dead and decaying rat in your dumpster may bring other kinds of pests. You end the rat infestation with poison only to start a different problem with different pests.
Aside from the stress that comes with cleaning up after a dead rat, what happens if the rat does not eat the pest control company's poison? They can't force the rats to eat it.
When the rats do not eat these poisons, it can harm anything else that comes in contact with it including, children, pets, and other wildlife creatures.
Using rat poison as a method to remove rats leaves you wondering, is such a precarious pest control method worth it?
