Rat Trapping 

Who’d ever heard of Rat Trapping? Well, maybe someone had but certainly not me, at least not until I heard a scream from my five year old who had gone down to grab some potatoes from the cellar. Trying not to break an ankle, I rushed out the back door and down the stairs toward the cellar. I met my five year old rushing up the stairs, a bunch of potatoes rolling around at the bottom. I was quickly told that a big black monster had scrambled out of the potato sack and ran over her arm before disappearing into the dark.  

As I consoled her, I was thinking that I might need a little comforting myself. Though she could have exaggerated the size of the thing, I still hoped that it had been a mouse─not a rat.   
Grabbing up a flashlight, I returned to the scattered potatoes and the cellar. Inside, I found no signs of furry black beasts, but as I started through the other burlap sacks of food storage, I was sickened─nearly every bag had been eaten into. It looked like all of it would have to be thrown out. 

As saddened as I was to see all that food go to waste, I immediately called United Wildlife for help because I couldn’t see where the culprits were or where they were coming from. Scarier still, I had no idea how many there might be. I was so glad I called, because it definitely wasn’t as simple as laying out a few snap or rat-bait traps. I quickly found out that Rat Trapping is a process.  

First of all, the technicians came in and were quickly able to locate the pathways and holes that the potato rat─and all of his cousins─was using to travel through the under and inner workings of my home. I probably would have quit after catching a couple and been proud but they were professional and thorough. Leave even one rat untrapped and you’ll soon have another infestation.  

With means of locating, trapping and carcass control that I had never even thought of, they wrested my home and cellar from our creepy four-legged infestation.  

They also took steps to help us prevent another one. We’ve now changed how we store our food, patched up holes that I’d not even noticed before─but were as good as a two-lane freeway to a rat─and regained control of my home and property.
