New Haven County, Waterbury Rat Control Situation:
Hi David - I just read your article on rat/mice removal using the DIY approaches. We are currently looking for a professional to come to our home asap, in the meantime I wanted to get your recommendations for the clean-up inside our home, not the attic. Is it ok to use a household vacuum cleaner? I found droppings our master bedroom closet and wanted to vacuum the entire area and other closets as well, but was unsure of the potential issue of contaminating my vacuum cleaner. If a vacuum cleaner is not a good option, could you recommend an alterative tool to clean floors/carpeted areas where 1) Droppings have been seen and/or 2) just general clean-up in the same area. Thanks for your time. Angie

A rat infestation is a big problem for almost every household. If you are having the same issues, you need to understand the fact that you are not alone in this problem. Although, you need to take quick removal actions because the rats won't leave unless you make them.
To help you achieve this, we will be sharing different rat traps that are humane that you can use to remove rats from your home. With the following traps, you won't have to bother about rats causing a nuisance in your home anymore.
Glue traps are perfect for rats nesting in an enclosed area. These traps are designed with plastic and a semi-solid liquid that is believed to glue rats to its surface when they try to walk on it. To use a glue board, all you need to do is place it along the routes of the rat. The trap will intercept the rat's path and it will be trapped in the process.
The only issue with the use of this trap is that you will have to keep inspecting it from time to time in order to dispatch the rat from the board when it finally is trapped.
Fenn traps are designed for use in tunnels. The design of this trap makes it possible for it to trap rats only and prevent interaction with other non-target species. It's a special mechanism that makes it possible to kill the rat humanely by constricting and suffocating it.
Snap traps are one of the most commonly used rat traps and are most suitable if you want to trap rats in your attic and other places in your home with limited access. It also kills rats instantly and is very effective in removing rats.
