I had heard that with livestock you get rodents. We live in a rural area, so they are in the area anyway, but we seem to have developed a real problem. Mice are usually an issue about once a year when winter sets in, but these are rats. (It was colder last night, but - ) Have reason to believe they were in our crawl space and potentially in one wall of the house last night. Bait (other animals - dogs make this a problem), traps, etc. I realized the added food source is an issue, and access to house (from wherever they are coming from - thought it was sealed pretty much from prior issues). Any suggestions? How does everyone deal with this?
