Q&A Home

Bobby from Arnold, Maryland writes,

Rat under my bird feeder. Squirrels too. Will the squirrel go into the trap for the bait?

Think the rat is in the crawl space under my kitchen. When he dies, will the smell drive us out of the house? (Protecta trap)


Squirrels are known to feed on baits used in Protecta Bait Stations along with rats. If a rat or squirrel eats rodenticide baits and then dies under your home it can indeed cause a strong odor.
