A major problem with killing Joliet rats with poison is that when they start decomposing, they could expose your house to a very terrible smell. You might have heard from a friend who was having issues with rats that apart from poison been effective, it would also make the rat thirsty. Then the rat would be forced to go outside and then die there. The question is if this assertion is true or a myth.
Does Poison Make Illinois Rats Thirsty
The answer is no. Poison does not make rat thirsty, neither does it make them go outside to die. The poison only leads to a sort of severe stomach ache for the rat, making it difficult for it to move from where it was when the effects of the poison kicked in. The implication is that it would still be within your house and might have relocated to its hiding place. This would make finding it difficult.
How Does Poison Kill a Joliet Rat
The poison kills the rat by making the rat start bleeding from the inside. The rat subsequently gets too lazy to move and dies where it is, in the case where the poison successfully kills it.
How to Find Dead Rat
Your best bet to finding a dead Illinois rat is trying to observe where the smell in the strongest. By doing this, you will be able to narrow down to the room where the rat died as well as its location. If you are lucky, it might not be inside the wall. So you will be able to find it under the bed, inside a wardrobe or on to of wardrobe. On the other hand, it could be inside the wall. When you observe the part of the wall the smell is strongest, you drill the wall.
