There are many ways to get rid of rats. You can use traps or poison, but make sure that these methods do not harm other animals or humans, and you will need to make sure that they are placed in areas where people and pets cannot reach them. Another way to get rid of rats is by using rodenticides, which must be put into bait stations that protect pets and any other animals that may be around. The rodenticide must then be applied within the general area where you’re seeing evidence of rat activity. Another option is to take your pet out for walks more often so it becomes less likely for them to eat food left outside with rat droppings on it!
