Couple of large construction projects in our neighborhood seemed to have
sent all sorts of critters looking for new habitat. Thought the wife
was off a tad when she said she thought she saw a rat in out garage.
Then I saw one. Uh Oh. My wife is a *pack* rat so the rafters are full
of boxes. No wonder.
What are the latest tried and true favorite methods hereabouts? TIA
Cats are out BTW.
I got the larger one... Uses 4 d batteries so it pack a bigger punch...
I've heard some people joking around on the internet that they hate
rats and mice so much they want to hook it up to 110..<grin>... I can't

Probably worth a try.

avoiders or immune to many materials. The local exterminator knows what
works and has access to materials that can not be legally sold to
Rat traps and other rodent control devices can be had at any farm
supply store. If you're in a sporting mood, back these up with a good
pellet gun like Midwestern folks do. Don't know if Texans favor larger
caliber weapons of small destruction like they used to.
During the Middle Ages, cats got the reputation as "familiars" of Satan.
Killing cats was the Christian thing to do.
Rats multiplied like crazy and with them, fleas.
The resulting Bubonic Plague wiped out 1/3rd of Europe.
Do you want to die a painful death, marked by festering pustules of rot and
so disfigured that when you pass this mortal coil, God himself will not
If not, please reconsider your position on cats.
