What is the best way to control them? I have 2 kittens but they aren't big enough to do any damage some of these rats are almost as big as them. What is the best way to get rid of them. Not sure I could poison them because I have 3 dogs and 2 cats that could get into the poison. They are too big for most traps...Thanks for any suggestions you can give me! I want my ducklings and chicks to be able to live outside without fear of a rat eating them.
