Welcome to the Community Rat Management Project!
Thank you for managing your rats humanely and efficiently, and for contributing to our data collection.
How it works:
Choose your membership, purchase your stations, monitor them from a distance, and service them or call Humane Solutions once you see the ‘trap fired’ indicators. Once a month we ask you to submit your catch for the month, even if it is zero. This is in an effort to collect data with which we intend to make a significant contribution to urban rat management.
You can run your traps all by your self, you can call us once and a while, or we can run the program for you and provide monthly inspections and reports. Just as long as the rats are being controlled and the data is being collected, we’re happy.
Let’s do it together.
This is the typical pest control process, skip the hassle, give us a call!
The Community Rat Management Program Goals:
- save members money
- humanely and more efficiently manage rats
- reduce poison entering the ecosystem
- collect population data to allow us to approach the problem scientifically
- use increased membership to lower service cost to members
- rely on the community to drive the system; recruit your neighbors, talk about it, report your monthly catch (even if it’s ZERO!)
The data can’t be argued with, just do a simple search and you will see for yourself. Rat poison is detrimental to the environment, responsible for poisoning numerous species INCLUDING humans, mainly children. Most rats avoid poison stations, the ones that do die either die in human structures, or they are predated or decomposed and the chemicals enter the ecosystem. If we forget all of that, the simple fact that rat poison is NOT working is evidence enough that we need change.
In the place of exterior rat poison, Humane Solutions uses structural exclusion to keep rats out of homes and buildings, and humane rat trapping stations to eradicate them from yards and green spaces. Now, Humane Solutions invites you to be part of a community of people who want to manage rat populations responsibly and improve international standards of rat control by creating information about how rats actually operate.
Trapping stations can dispatch 2 rats per set and are attractive, discreet, pet-proof, and waterproof. Rats that enter a station are killed quickly with a snap trap. The stations are equipped with indicators that tell you when a rat is caught, just like a country mailbox.
When You Catch One:
Once you see an indicator, you can empty the trap yourself or call Humane Solutions. We will collect and dispose of all rat carcasses and reset your traps.
If many people on your block have stations to be serviced, the cost can be spread out among all of you.
Humane Solutions is also collecting data to help experts track populations and design experiments to improve rat control techniques. As a community, we can prove that resource mitigation and humane trapping are effective. The goal is to convince governments to abandon the use of inhumane, harmful, and ineffective poison in favour of better methods. As we continue to collect data, our methods will surely be taken up internationally.
If we all simply report when we’ve trapped each rat, we might just change the world. This is the power of community.
