Any clever ideas on how to get rid of rats? They have the free buffet of food in the quail coop, so baiting them into a trap just doesnt seem to work! I have 2 cats. One I feed in the feed room, so he basically lives out there just for this purpose. He has killed 2, but Ive got more than that! I cant put out poison - I tried that once and the rats carried the poison into my goat pen and dropped it! Good thing the goats didnt eat it! I also had my dog find and eat the poison once, so poison is probably not a good idea. I have set numerous traps and never catch a one. I have put mothballs all around the feed room to run them off too. I need some better ideas! Any help???? thanks!
