I have a rat problem. Yesterday, I put out one of those hunting cameras so you can get pictures of motion in your yard, and I got a lot of different pictures. I'll try to post them later. My Dad suggests putting carbon mionoxide in their hole, but idk... About a week ago, I put a bunch of different spices in their hole, chili peppers, pepper, and every other spice you can think of. It didn't work. I have tried everything, traps, putting rocks down the hole, flooding the hole, and just filling it with dirt. I can't put poison out, the hole is directly next to my coop, and my girls free range a lot. Please help me. I live in the suburbs, and if my neighbors find out there are rats near, they will blame the chickens and have them sent away. (btw, the rats were in my other neighbors yard before I had chickens. He has a compost pit right in his yard, and that's what them here in the first place) Thanks for any answers!
