Using One-Way Exclusion Funnels to Remove Rats

So you have recently discovered that a colony of Jackson rats has made their home in your attic. There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that this is incredibly disturbing to you. Having a colony of rats in your home is not only disturbing because of how loud and obnoxious they can be, but these Mississippi animals carry so many diseases which can be hazardous to you, your family, and your pets.

It is clear that you want to get the Mississippi rats out, but this may not be the easiest thing for you to do. Most people don’t like to go in the attic themselves, even to try to scare these animals away, because they can be rather frightening. There is also the concern for your health by being in close proximity with these Jackson animals. It is a real dilemma.

This is where the one way exclusion funnel can really be an advantage for you. If you are not familiar with these devices, let us explain to you how they are used. To start with, you need to do a little investigation on the outside of your home to see where the entryways are that rats are getting into and out of your own. Look for cracks, loose boards, holes, or damage to ventilation grills as good as possible entryways that the Mississippi rats are using. If you have found one, don’t just decide you don’t need to look for others. Make sure you found every one of them!

Once you have found them, what you want to do is make sure that you seal all but one of these locations. This will ensure that your plan will work with much greater success. With the one entryway still available on the outside of your Jackson home you want to attach this one way exclusion funnel. What this does is allow rats to get out of your home and out into the air, but does not allow then access back into your home. This is why did they are so ideal. What you do here is try to create some kind of a ruckus or shine a very bright light into your attic just at dusk. This will disturb the Mississippi rats who will then rush for the entryway heading out for the funnel. Once outside, they will not be able to get back in, in your house will be back for a once again. You will find that this is a great solution.
