Hahahaha....that's really good advice as I've lost anything that could possibly be lost that I just knew I wouldn't lose and would remember where I put it.
So...do you think using bacon grease or anything similar will actually attract rats into a barn that they aren't currently inhabiting?
No, I don't think you can pull them more than a couple feet from where they are planning to go anyway.
Do chipmunk's have the same taste?
I've never tried either, so I don't know. If you mean do they like the same food, chipmunks are more into nuts and seeds, and less interested in meat and fat.
