Old-Fashioned Rat Trap

  • Dig a hole and bury a large fruit jug or jar.
  • The top part of the jar should be left uncovered, and a hole should be broken in it just above the ground.
  • Place some shelled corn in the bottom, put a board on top, and weight it down.
  • Check it every few days

This is AMAZING!!!!!! I need this SO bad! 

I have some of these as well as the excelsior ones. I have one coop where the nest boxes just don't stay clean - just put one of these in. We'll see if they lay on it.

Use a mini LED mister to keep humidity up during lockdown, just don't leave on all the time.

I finally thought of a tip~ When someone says "put the egg in a cutdown egg carton" they don't mean cutting the top of the carton shorter, they mean cutting holes in the egg cup part of the carton or else you will be limiting proper air circulation to the eggs".....

 

 

Yes I made that mistake once!
