Tip & How-To about Miscellaneous
When setting traps for rats you have to be concerned about the safety of children and pets.
Here's a tip that eliminates the problem.
Find a cardboard box that is large enough to accommodate the rat trap with space to let it function. Cut or use a hole saw to make 2 holes in the opposite sides of the box, close to the bottom, and close to one adjacent side.
Place the box in the area where the rats are, with the holes close to a wall where the rats travel. Set the trap and place it in the cardboard box with the bait side against the "travel" side of the box. Close the top of the box and let nature happen. Pets like cats and dogs cannot get at the trap through the rat sized entry holes. Kids don't see the trap so they don't investigate, and when you do trap a rat, it is pleasantly out of sight of easily grossed out people.
Hope this helps.
