Rat Poison

We do not recommend using rat poison in the attic. Rats do not travel far from where they nest to get food and water. Sometimes rats drink from the ac drip pan located near or in the attic. If the rat that eats the poison is nesting in your attic it could die in the attic causing a stinky smell. Sometimes these poisoned rats fall into wall voids making it difficult to remove the dead rat.  

Glue Rat Traps

These traps are designed to stop the rat that runs across the glue board, but this would have to be the most inhumane way of getting rid of rats. These rats are alive when stuck to the glue trap. Terrified rats and mice occasionally scream as they try to escape the glue as it can rip off their fur and skin. Sometimes larger rats that get caught on the glue rat trap rip themselves off.
