The advantages of trapping when compared to baiting include: 1) Trapping does not require the use of harmful poisons; 2) Trapping allows the user to know whether the rat was killed, whereas with baiting the rat will wander off and die somewhere else; 3) Trapping eliminates odor problems by allowing you to dispose of the rat carcass.

Rodenticides were once categorized as acute (single-dose) or chronic (multiple dose) toxicants. Timing a sealup for rats is impossible, because they leave for short periods, and they don't all leave at the same time of night.
