A few months back, when there was a road construction near our area, the rats moved in the neighborhood. There were two big ones that were digging in our yard and we were concerned that they were going to cause us a big problem so we set a trap but it did not work.
Our good neighbor came to the rescue and lent us their poison peanut pellets. They definitely took the bait and ate the pellets, we found them dead! One of it died under the steps of our back porch so we couldn't get it out, it stunk so bad but we're glad that they died.
Some might say that it's cruel to kill them but I'd rather see them dead than have them invade our home and cause disease.
When I see pet rats I think they're quite sweet, but NOT on the front porch!ReplyDelete
Me too! It's good that you got rid of them.ReplyDelete
that bait really worked :-) glad the rats are gone now :-) Dropping by from MYMReplyDelete
I agree that you should have gotten rid of them for good. I assume that the poison peanuts were contained in such a way pets and children couldn't get to them. I have heard you shouldn't use poison INSIDE the house to get rid of rodents because they crawl back into the walls and die. You took some great pix.ReplyDelete

That darn construction!!Seems like they always stir up the rodents. I would have done the same thing.ReplyDelete
I wouldn't be too happy to have them roaming around in my home either!ReplyDelete
