The thought of edible homemade rat poison may shock you, but it is true all the same. What is edible to you can be poison to a rat. Rats and mice have been trouble since the beginning of time, and at one time or another everyone has to deal with them.
The question lies in how should you deal with them. Let’s face it, rats are vermin, yet many people can’t stand the thought of snapping them flat with a rat trap. The only way left is live traps, sticky papers, or poison.
When using traps or sticky paper you still have the problem of what to do with the rat once you catch it. Some people say to just trap and release; but have you ever thought about all those people in the country that you release them on? Peppermint oil will drive rats and mice away, yet by doing this you are giving the rats a chance to produce even more rats. And the cold hard fact is that rats do carry diseases and should not be left alive to multiply.
The best way to get rid of rats is to poison them. People with small children or pets have stayed clear of this method because of the apparent dangers. What they don’t realize is that the rats are also a danger to their pets and children. So what can be done to solve this? The solution is edible homemade rat poison.
By using ingredients that are completely safe for people and pets you can still poison all the rats in your home. Below are the ingredients for the edible homemade rat poison.
1 Cup flour
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Baking Soda
Those three ingredients, which everyone has around the house, are all you need to get rid of your rat or mouse infestation.
Once the ingredients are mixed together, place small amounts in tiny bowls, and store them in places where rats are leaving their droppings.
The reason that this edible poison will kill rats is because the bicarbonate in the baking soda will mix with their stomach acids and kill them. Rats can not burp or belch, so they will die.
If you can fix a small trap to put the poison in, the rat will not be able to go off and die, causing a smell. If you want safe rat poison, try this recipe.
