Rats are one of the most destructive rodents especially when they get their way into your house; they love living in the attic, constantly scratching your walls, always raiding your kitchen and chewing through any leftovers and other pantries and gnawing your electric pipes and water pipes. They are very irritating animals and you will try hard to come up with the most effective techniques that will help you get rid of them in the shortest time possible. One of the most effective ways is:
One way exclusion funnels
In order to be successful there are certain steps that you have to follow: Inspect the house and identify all the holes that are possible entry points of rats into the house. Seal up all the entry holes and leave only one hole that is popularly used by the rats to get in and out of the house. Set up the exclusion funnels on this primary entry and exit point and be patient.The one way exclusion funnels is very effective because you do not require any kind of trap to get rid of the rats. With these funnels, the rats will not be able to push their way out via the one way door; in other words, they can easily enter into the funnels but it is usually impossible to get out of the funnel. You will therefore be able o release them afterwards but away from your home to prevent them from returning to your home. The other advantage of using the one way funnels is that they will not harm the rats in any way. You will be able to safely evacuate them away from your home into the wild.
How do these funnels look like?
From their name, it is obvious that they are constructed in such a way that they resemble funnels; they are also made of mesh wire with holes that are not large enough to allow the rats to escape once they are trapped. Moreover, the one way has to be big enough to allow the rat to easily get in but small in size on the front part that will forbid the rat from escaping.
Advantages of the one way funnel
It is one of the safest devices that you can use to remove rats from your house because they are not lethal which implies that they will not kill or harm the rats in any way. In addition the one way funnels are easy to use, all you have to do is to position them at the primary exit/ entry point and be patient. After a couple of hours, the rat will automatically be trapped and all you have to remove him from the funnel.
