One Way to Control Rats - FarmTech - 11-10-2017

If you’re having rat problem in your farm, there is a safe, non-poisonous method you can use to kill them. You’ll need 1 cup of flour, 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate). Mix them up and place in small plates for the rats to find. When they eat it, the soda will react with stomach acid to produce CO2. There stomach will swell and squash their lungs, suffocating them.

Another method is to use flour and cement. When they eat this one, they’ll feel like drinking water and when they do, the cement will set in their stomach and kill them almost instantly.
