Ugh- we finally have attracted rats. After almost 3 years, they have decided to move in under my feed barn. Maybe they were already there, but we never saw them or heard them or saw the evidence of them being there. These are some big guys, all grayish brown with long thick ratty tails. They are eating my BOSS faster than my chickens and its starting to tick me off! I think there are about 4 or 5 of them from what we've seen. Anyhow, I have tried glue traps- no success, tried those traps that 'hide' the body inside so you just toss it in the trash- no success. Last night we tried those snap traps that swing the bar over and snap their nasty little necks- no success. Those little turds ATE the bait and took off, didnt even set off the trap (which was baited with peanut butter with sunflower seeds stuck into it) and those were not the cheapie dollar store traps, they were big and expensive. I even tried locking my usually excellent barn cats in the room overnight with them- no success. My son and I have stayed up till 3 am trying to sneak up on them and shoot them with a pellet gun, even when we hit them, they still just run off. Grrrrrr. Anyone have any suggestions? Any ideas for an good bait that will stick to the trap and nail 'em? What worked for you?
