That's true. That's why they are so hard to get rid of. I found a good web site you might be interested in. Google SenesTech. Interesting. As for the Grandpa feeder I've read reviews of it where two or three rats got on the treadle and the others on their hind legs and are out of the feeder. Rats are like predators you don't have them until you do. I believe these rats came from across the street when my other neighbor lost all her chickens to foxes from her husband leaving the coop open one night.They can also get into a no waste feeder if that’s the case?
Yes I've tried them all. the one's with the PVC elbows the chicken pull feed up onto the lower lip and flick it out from
Weeg, that was a very good article. Thanks for sharing that. No one should need anything else to read about the subject, than that article. It coves everything.Okay, this is the same thing I say to every member, read this article! It decimated my rat problem! I suggest the feeder (Grandpas feeder) that is suggested in the article! I bought one and love it! Fo more reasons then just keeping out rats! Look here for the Q&A section, and here for the purchase section! There is also another brand of feeder that will probably come up here, one made my Al Gerhart with also looks well made. You want to do everything that the article says, I highly suggest not using poison, for all the reasons and more listed in the article. I hope this helps!
