Tell me how to kill a rat or two.
I thought I had a mouse problem in my barn, but upon seeing the bugger this morning, it is a bonafide RAT. I haven't seen any thing like it since moving from Lowell where they were common along the banks of the Merrimack River. I put my cat out there, he saw it, hissed, and they both ran away from each other, so my geriatric cat is officially useless. All I have are mouse traps and they have been tripped before with no results...obviously I now know the traps are too darned small. I cannot use poison because of my animals, and I am unable to leave the property in the foreseeable future to get any other larger traps. Is there something I can rig up in the meantime to safely rid me of these things? I don't mind if they die in the process ;) Thank you in advance for any advice you toss my way.
