With tomatoes you can do several things.

For pet lovers and especially who tame rats they may feel offended if I am talking about killing rats but please bare with me and also understand that few people are allergic to certain foods and I am allergic to animals such as rats.

If a rat is moving around in your house like a menace and tearing and eating your things around you will be keen enough to get rid of it by catching or killing. I tried both.

I tried catching the menace with mouse trap and tried hitting with brooms but I just could not get rid of it.

Finally if had an idea of killing a rat with rat killer and after getting a rat kill poison I started searching for food items rats would love to it. After cutting two tomatoes in 8 pieces and dressing them with rat poison I spread those pieces across my house and waited for one day.

With tomatoes you can have a recipe, with tomatoes you can have a tomato fight and here was trying to kill a rat with tomatoes.

It worked?

Yes, at last the next day I found once piece of tomato had disappeared and after confirming for another two days I thought I got rid of the menace. I though wanted to bury dead body with due respect but never found the body and predicted that It might have said goodbye to its loved ones and died somewhere in a rat hole.

So thing you can probably do with tomatoes is kill a rat!

    Oh that was funny! I hope for your sake it has not gone under some part of your furniture to die! they have been known to climb into sofas and all sorts! You will soon find out if your home starts to smell of rotting flesh. Be sure to block up the rat hole.

    I used to live on a farm, and we had a lot of rats in the barn. We bought some rat poison, but felt really bad about using it, so we wrapped it in plastic and put it in a sealed plastic container for a couple of days until we could bring ourselves to use it. We didn’t even get that far – the rats ate through the plastic and helped themselves to it!

    or you can move to Alberta – we are rat free. Personally I am the type that would have caught it and set it free somewhere.

    I would love to have a rat as a pet, but there’s a difference between the kind you get for pets (from “ratteries”, and they are raised from birth to be around humans), and the “menace” kind you describe here in your article which will destroy your home, as you found out. While I don’t ever condone the killing of any animal – with few exceptions like bears and gators for example – I also don’t believe one should have to live with a menace either, rat or otherwise.

    Good informative article though!
