Why do rats die inside houses or attics?

If you were sick and thought you might not recovered, where would you want to go? Would you go want to go to work, even though you were feeling sick? Would you want to go to the grocery store and get food? Would you want to collect water from a well, or care for your screaming children, cooking them food and making sure their every need was met?



No, you wouldn’t. You would want to go to bed. You would want to curl up in your bed, pull up the duvet, and sleep until you felt better. That’s all a rat wants to do when it becomes ill - go back to bed, rest its head, and hopefully wake up feeling refreshed. In some cases, however, the rat doesn’t wake up. If you have placed poison in your home, a rat could die within it in a few days or weeks, and what they do when the poison starts to take serious effect and makes it feel unwell? It is going to go right back to bed - its nest - to go to sleep.

This is why you shouldn’t use poison to get rid of rats in your home, folks. It really does cause more damage than solves problems. Rats die inside houses and attics because that’s generally where their nests are. That’s all the rat is doing when it dies - going back to bed. If you have one rat there, there is likely to be others too, so you will definitely want to find this dead rat, and the nest it is probably hiding in. You will also want to find it before the evil stench of a decomposing corpse hits too. That smell can get awfully bad in the summer, or in the winter when you turn the heating on!

If you think you have a rat in your home, or you’ve found evidence of a rat infestation, you will want to keep searching until you find the proverbial pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. In this case, the nest of the rat. When you know where the nest is, and where the dead rat is, you can then dispose of both correctly and safely, ensuring that no risk of disease is still present. You can make sure the bad smell goes. You can also find out where the rats are busying themselves the most. These are the perfect spots to set the traps because the rats are most likely to both see and use them.
