There are, however, several more humane ways of removing a rat infestation. For example, you might use a sonic repellent, which emits an annoying noise (audible only by rats,) or you might trap and release rats. These kinds of humane traps can work, but are often most effective when used in tandem with lethal methods.

The internet can be a great resource not only for sourcing various pest control products but also for reading more tips about how to reduce and remove pest infestations.
