I had heard noises in my attic and found feces and urine, along with burrowing trails in the loose-fill insulation. On Wed I put out a Havahart 2-door trap with chunks of peanut butter bread chunks.
Thurs day: bread chunks outside trap were gone
Friday: no change
Sat am: found rat in trap
I went to remove the trap and picked it up to put into plastic bags, not thinking of door latches. I tilted the trap and he fell out, never to be seen again.
Am I screwed now? Will he now avoid the trap and tell all his ratty friends?
Seriously--what would next steps be?
