Does poison make rats thirsty and die outside
Those who have rats and are looking for a way to get rid of them are always trying to find the quick fix way that
resolves the problem and does it in such a way that the cleanup is easiest. No one wants to be searching for dead
rats all over their home, so they are looking for better options that can make the process a lot simpler.
There are some poisons out there that have given the impression that they can do the job quickly and easily. They espouse
the idea that the way that they work is by causing the rats to become thirsty. They will leave the home looking for water
and then will die outside. This will make the cleanup process a lot simpler because you don’t need to try to track them in
your home. You can simply let them die outside and even if you don’t find them it doesn’t really matter.
This is a nice tale, but the truth is that these poisons do not work the way they espouse. This is a pure myth, and a rather
well told one to be honest. You just need to be aware of this.
There are poisons that cause rats to become dehydrated. These chemical formulas deny the rats’ bodies the ability to absorb water
they drink and so it is expelled as waste for the most part. The rats become heavily dehydrated and will eventually die, usually
within a very short period of time. This can be very effective.
However, to believe that this will force them outside to search for water is ridiculous. If they found a source of water inside they
will stay inside continually drinking the water until they die. To think that they will head outside to find water simply defies logic.
Unless their source of water is gone they will continue to return to it to get what they are looking for. It is only when that source is
gone that they will search somewhere else. You should not assume that the best location for them is outside somewhere. Another place in
your home may work just as well.
Myths like this make for good stories, but they do not make for good results, at least not the kind of results that you may be expecting.
While they can be effective in killing the rats, they will not work in this way. Keep that in mind before you purchase.
