Why Prebaiting is Important in Setting Up Rat Trap


 
Home Improvement,Health,Family & Parenting
Rats are very smart and they are not about to jump on a trap just because you've put a dab of peanut butter on it. Rats are very suspicious of anything new in their territory and they will carefully examine it and test it to see if it is friend or foe.

Setting traps are tricky specially when dealing with the smart rodents, the rats. They are clever and aim to survive and will avoid anything that they think is unsafe. They will not go directly to the rat trap even if their favorite peanut butter is inside if they think that it is unsafe for them. They can get the bait from the rat trap and escape from it. This is the reason why we need to understand a few pointers on how to set the mouse trap to effectively eliminate these rodents.

You may think you know how to set a rat trap, but there is an art to doing it properly. Rodents are very smart and learn quickly to avoid objects and areas that present possible danger.

So, you think you've been around the block once or twice and know everything there is about properly setting a rat snap trap? Well, there's a lot more to it than pulling back the snap bar and putting it on the ground. Read on and learn the right way.

Too often people set their traps only to find that they have been set off and nothing has been captured. They re-set the traps and discover they cannot get a rodent to come near it. Once the trap has failed to do its job the target rat has learned his lesson and will not come near anything that resembles the trap or the smell of the trap.

Rats eat any kind of food. They usually try out if the food is safe to eat, then continuously go for that food. So, you need to observe what food they usually eat. If you find crumbs of biscuits or if you find any signs of what they love to eat inside your home, then that is the best bait to put on your rat trap.

However, if you have no idea and you cannot find any trace of what they love to eat then another option is to pre-bait. If you already find a good spot to place your rat trap, use peanut butter, a piece of bacon or bread as bait and leave it on the trap without the snap trigger. If it's gone the next day, then they will definitely be back to get another one so you need to repeat the same procedure on the second day. On day three, you can already set the trap trigger.

Pre-baiting a rat trap is of utmost importance, but you need to know what to put on the trap as bait. It's important to know what the rat has been eating because rats will test a food to see how it affects them. If it digests well they will return to gorge themselves on that single food source. If, for example, you found the rat had been eating chocolate cupcakes you should take small pieces of those cupcakes and place it on the trap trigger. Do not set the spring bar the first or second day. Allow the rat to become accustomed to eating from the unset trap. If the rat is eating the cupcake from the trap consistently you can set the trap spring bar to go off on day three.
