How To Get Rid Of Rats In The Attic - Rats are one of the most problematic pest animals to deal with for those who have attic spaces, as they can squeeze through holes that are around the size of a quarter, while they are also prodigious breeders.
They can successfully mate throughout the year, meaning that if you have rats in the attic, then there is a good possibility that they will have a nest of baby rats that you will need to deal with as well.
Because of the diseases they can carry, you should also check up on the equipment that you will need to safely trap the rats without any risk to your health. Building Inspection and Rat-Proofing The first and most crucial thing is to inspect the house and find all possible entry holes, and before starting any trapping, carry out repairs and seal the attic so the rats can't get in again.
Also, carry out a visual examination of the attic to find the holes they were using to get in and out of the attic.

Yesterday I learned that a rat was in our attic. We discovered that it chewed it's way in through a roof vent. It seems to be trapped in the attic. We have left some nuts near the attic opening in our garage. We left a tall latter under the attic opening and left the garage side door open.
Today, I asked my husband to open up the screening on the vent that the rat was trying to get out from. He also repaired the area that the squirrel originally chewed to enter into the attic. My husband believes that it was too difficult Album) the rat to exit in the same way it had entered. Our hopes is that the rat will exit and after not hearing it for a day or two, we can repair the screen vent area.
If the rat does not leave, we will learn that it is no longer concerned about being trapped and plans to stay. Our next step is, is to rent a live animal trap. We do believe that most likely, the rat is an expecting mother searching for a place to soon give birth. After reading your web site, we realize that we only have a short amount of time before she will have her babies. Please e-mail me your advice, opinion, and recommendation.
Thank you, Sincerely, Renee Renee - That's certainly a lot of monitoring and concern for a rat! I've never seen the like.
The truth is that where there's one rat, there's usually several. It's quite possible that you have more than one rat on your hands. I'm surprised that you saw it, since it's very rare for people to spot these elusive and nocturnal creatures. Log In Create an Account.

He tells them that change is coming, and they will soon come to a crossroads and have to decide which path to take. Later in the prologue, while at the palace, the apprentice dreams of Asra once again. They see him going down the wrong path and urge him to stop.
A paid choice allows the apprentice to enter a memory from before Asra set out on his journey, where they can question him about leaving them behind. Putting the emerald in the water, the apprentice focuses on a spell to find Asra. Asra expresses happiness at Faust being there for the apprentice, while the apprentice regales Asra with what has happened since he left.

The Apprentice is a love interest for Asra. He lives with them at their magic shop in the Center City district of Vesuvia. The two are very close despite his frequent absence, which he admits is partly due to how overwhelmed he is by his feelings towards them. The two are revealed to have met 9 years prior at a Masquerade, when Asra was selling animal masks outside of the Apprentice's shop. Story implications imply that the two became romantically involved after their first meeting, although Asra explains that they were never quite as involved as he would have liked.
Sometime during the outbreak of the Red Plaguethe Apprentice and Asra argued over whether to stay in Vesuvia or not. Ultimately the Apprentice stayed behind, while Asra left the city for an undetermined amount of time.
Upon returning, he found out that the Apprentice had died of the plague and had been cremated at the Lazaret. Devastated, he resolved to bring the Apprentice back to life.
Asra missed the apprentice dearly during the time they were gone. He explains that he was in a very dark place during this time period. When Asra succeeded in reviving the Apprentice, he gave them half of his heart as part of his magical deal, caring more for them than for any consequences he might have faced. Upon realizing the Apprentice's memory had been wiped clean, Asra focused his time and energy into reteaching them everything they knew, including magic.
When reminders of their past left them in a catatonic state, Asra kept his romantic feelings to himself to keep them safe. However, due to how overwhelming these feelings were, Asra frequently left on journeys when the Apprentice was well enough to care for themselves.
The Apprentice often appears to be annoyed by the many secrets that Asra keeps from them, since he cannot even say it is for their own good. Asra cares deeply for them, but is afraid of acting on his feelings. If the two begin a relationship during his route, Asra can focus his attention solely on the Apprentice.

Eventually, however, he acknowledged Julian's desire and the two began a physical relationship. At some point, their relationship met a messy end for an unknown cause. Story implications suggest Asra may have found out that the Apprentice was once Julian's assistant, and he may blame him for their demise. Regardless, both are bitter about it for different reasons and hurt by their fallout.
If the Apprentice asks Asra who Julian is to him, Asra tells them that Julian is whoever he needs to be to get what he wants, and that he is also "a hack physician with a lot to learn.
