    Ok I decided to try out the "Ratzapper". I place my trap by my hay stack since the little buggers like to live under my pallet and baited it. I initially didn't turn it on, so they could have a "free meal". They took the bait last night so now I have baited it with delicious scratch and turned it on. May the chickens have fried rat for breakfast! [​IMG]

    Where can you buy a "ratzapper"? After living here 5 years I've never seen a rat, but now that I have chickens it could happen.
    The guy that lived here before us raised pigs and I did see a couple old rat traps in the barn. :eek:
