Okay, I was so much happier when I was ignorant of the world next door, but now that I'm chicky sitting, I have to wake up and smell the rats. My neighbors got them in their yard. Yes, I could call animal control, etc., etc., but I'd rather figure out a way to deal with them myself as I feel there's a better chance they'll get dealt with. My husband is a big nature lover (including rats, but sorry, what he doesn't know won't hurt him,) and to a lesser degree, so am I. I want to get the rats, but I don't want to get the squirrels. That kind of cancels out glue traps and poisons. Any advice regarding live traps and how to kill rodents caught in them? Thanks!
