 RAT EN-COUNTER

PROBLEM: Rat

EVIDENCE: Gnaw marks on bottom of doors going from finished basement to crawlspace. Gnaw marks on legs of furniture. Fair amount of banana left on counter eaten. No droppings were found.

TREATMENT: Rats are neophobic. They are very cautious/wary of any new items in their environment. Pre-baiting rat snap traps gains their confidence. Place food on the traps without setting. After two to four days, you may set the traps.

INTERESTING: Notice how the rat elongates his body and even jumps back as he investigates this new item.
