Oops, extra "pet" rat, non-fatal expulsion options?

What to do about an extra "pet" rat. We have two domestic rats who get a bit of freedom (out of the cage for ~ 1hr per day so there is a risk of temporary escape). But now an extra rat has come into the house. Previously I've used poison to get rid of rat visitors (we live next to a creek so they're pretty common round about) but I'm reluctant to do so in case one of the pets escape. Any suggestions on how to proceed? The two pets are called "Dotty" and "Stripey" btw so we've christened the visitor "Hidey"

DIY lead paint removal for mortals

I need to strip many layers of paint out of my old house. Does anyone have any experience with the "new" (in America) infra-red heat-strippers?
