:) I use the snap traps outdoors, but the rodents dig under the wall from
:) the inside. Snaptraps dont work when there are horses running around
:) inside. I am not going to dump a 55 gallon barrel of diesel, just a
:) quart or so.
Though there would be additional cost using a pro, there would be ways
to treat the pests near the animals. You might try to hunt down some
bait stations that could be adapted for snap trap usage so that using
them around the livestock could be an option.
