Many of Georgia's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Georgia's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Cobb county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Mableton animal control for wildlife issues.

Mableton Wildlife Removal Tip: What are some humane ways to kill a rat?

Killing rats can be a gruesome experience. The rats squeal, sometimes you end up hurting and injuring them instead of actually killing them. Considerably, the most humane ways of killing the rats are always the quickest and the most instantaneous ones. The methods in question will mostly include;

SNAP TRAPS

Well-designed snap traps come in different sizes and are readily available across the world in shops. In practice, a snap trap is only effective if it is designed in such a way that the rat's head is fully inside the trap area when the trap is triggered. Snap traps are found to ensure extremely quick and painless deaths since they work on a trigger mechanism that clamps down on the rat's neck instantly with force when released. For the use of snap traps in trapping and killing rats to be effective, the following measures should be put into consideration.

1. Baits should be placed only within the marked bait areas or alternatively fastened to the trap using strings.
2. The traps should be placed parallel and close to the walls or solid objects in the vicinity. It is always advisable to place the trap at the end of some type of 'funnels' to ensure that the rat has to go through it.

ASPHYXATION

This is probably the most humane way of killing rats. However, asphyxiation by the use of carbon (IV) oxide is only allowed to be practiced by qualified veterinarians in most parts of the world. Typically, it is not straightforward as such but can easily be done at home using readily available materials such as plastic containers, vinegar and baking soda to create the gas that will asphyxiate the rodent.

USE OF FORCE AND BLUNT TRAUMA TO THE HEAD

The aim of this method simply lies in the destruction of the rat's brain through the use of a powerful blow to the head of the rat. However, the never can be very daunting and emotionally draining thus needs only the people with the necessary nerve to employ it. If carried out haphazardly, there is the constant risk of distress and pain to the rat which dehumanizes the method.

CONCLUSION

There are many tested and proven methods to humanely kill rats. However, the above methods are considered the most humane by most animal right activists in the world. Killing a rat, however humane the method is, will always be a daunting task for many people. This can be avoided through the use of snap traps.
