The wrong way to do roof rat control

Look in the circle. See that green piece of rat poison in the roof of this house in Atlanta? That's the wrong way to do roof rat control.

First of all, as long as the gaps in the aren't sealed to make the house rat-proof, "new" rats will get in to replace the rats that are poisoned.

Secondly, you have no way to control where poisoned rats will die. If they die in a wall or ceiling void or some other inaccessible area, you'll either have to break it open or live with the stink for a few months.

At Rid-A-Critter, we only perform safe, non-chemical rat control using trapping and exclusion.
