Rats – one down, one to go
The rats have been getting high on my gels in the garage and I’ve lost patience and set some traps an hour ago. Two minutes later and I hear it go and crash off the shelf. It had managed to stuff its face with peanut butter in its last moments so not a bad way to go I suppose. Hope the rest of them are that easy.
Any tips out there?Posted 6 years agoGunzMember
Talking of traps hurting. I was in a small French pub once which had a display of first world war man traps on the wall, ‘look at these;, I said to the wife as I put my finger in the jaw of one only to find out it was pulled back the tiniest little bit until I did this. Went right through to the bone but at least the landlord gave me a free beer.Posted 6 years agoprojectMember
The thing about rats is they breed like a chav family on benefits, they can start breeding about a month after being born, and the female has about 8 per litter,so within a few weeks you can have quite a few,they also breed withing families, so incest is rife.
But i still like them, theyre just in the wrong place for you, perhaps put the gel bars in the house, like most peple do,leave no food for them and they may well move home.Posted 6 years ago
Another one this morning! I’m running out of bin bags.
Seems they’ve either been breeding or called in reinforcements. Others have suggested BB guns but I think I’d better get an xbox to practice on first as I’ve never even held a gun.
I think I’ve blocked their entry exit point so if they are all now trapped this could go on for some time!

Used to have mice at my old house. Set loads of traps and i caught a mouse right on the end of its nose. I bet that chuffing smarted a bit.Posted 6 years ago
The whole episode was like Christmas for me. I’d set the traps at night and i wouldn’t be able to sleep as i was so excited about how many i would catch.
Saw a programme about a man ratting at a farm with jack russels. I would pay to do that, it must be a man thing.mtb2020Member
Some people keep rats as pets. So you could befriend them, get them vaccinated at the vets, and revel in your new found friends. They can’t be any worse than some of the posters on here.
Also I believe that on the Wright Stuff a while ago, that woman who was the doctor on Tenko, can’t remember her name, Stephanie somebody or other, said that if you wanted to get rid of mice, you should just talk to them, and put food out for them somewhere else. You never know it could work with rats.Posted 6 years ago

Because rats are disgusting, disease carrying creatures, who eat their young and piss every
Well, the eating their young does’t bother me, and cats piss and crap everywhere too. I know some rats carry some diseases which may threaten people, but i thought that was far from universal.Posted 6 years ago
Dragging their dying siblings along whilst simultaneously eating them is a particularly nice trait of rats. Trained cats wee and shite in litter trays. Or whinging neighbours gardens.
That’s fine as well, but then rat haters shluldn’t whinge when someone takes the same attitude to their personal verminPosted 6 years ago
