One-way exclusion funnels are pretty much as the name suggests - funnels
that are designed to “exclude” an animal by way of a one-way door. In
fact, exclusion methods are fast becoming the RIGHT way - the most
effective and efficient way - to remove various wild animals from your
home or commercial property, and rats are definitely included.
There are a huge number of diseases that are associated with rats, and just some of them include Eosinophilic Meningitis, Leptospirosis, Salmonella, Rat-bite fever, Murine Typhus, and Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome. None of these are particularly friendly.
This is why you won't want to come into contact with these rats, or as little as possible anyway. This is what one-way exclusion devices allow you to do - get rid of the animal without needing to get too close. You don't need to get too close to the rats, or other wild animals and rodents, like you would with trapping methods, and poisons too. It's also the least dangerous way to deal with the problem, and the most humane.
