The decoys have been set as of 1800.
Hoping to kill em from the couch this time.
For rats and mice I recommend baiting the traps with a combination of peanut butter, cheese, cooked bacon, and grapes. Bait the traps and let them set for a couple of days before actually setting the trap. After you have caught a few...repeat the process. *******s never let up.
If your going after rats...make sure to tie down the traps otherwise you will be looking for wherever they drug your traps off to.
Put your neighbours cat in the cab.
Play some rap on a continuous loop
I had a rat problem in the garage/basement. Tried nuts, peanut butter, cheeses, and caught nothing. Shot 2 bufflehead. Breasted them and baited traps with the meat. Next day, 3 dead rats. Repeat. Next day, 2 more. Repeat. Next day, the she-betch. Big lady. Haven't had any rat activity since then. Buffies.....it's whats for dinner. Rat dinner. Last supper.
Compared to rats, mice are stupid. If you aren’t catching them it’s probably not a bait issue so much as it’s a trap placement issue. Make sure your traps are in spots with lots of “sign.” Same goes for the poison.
You might find some tips on this thread..
I got to deal with rats more than mice..like Bennett said.. mice are stupid.. a lot like mallards.IMO
As a owner of several fruit trees, and a large koa pond my yard is the rat magnet in my hood, coons too ! They have food and water !
I been dealing with them again as in every year.
I got this caulk rat the other day.. so big I could have made a rat skin hat !
Good luck BB..
Kind of like xmas.. you'll jump out of bed and run to check and see what ya got... good luck !!
As Mort said bait the trap but don't set it for a couple of meals. I tie some thread to the trip, a little trick my dad showed me a hundred yrs ago.
Put the trap inside the car/truck, on the floorboard. I had a mouse get inside my car, notice some padding from the seat cushion on the floor, place a trap there, and the next day, he was no more.
