Rat Report

I killed them. All of them.

Unfortunately, I have no pictures to share. These particular rats were wary of traps - probably because the first few traps got sprung without a kill. Of course the rats from last fall were not as smart and I got them all with traps, and thus the lovely pictures from that post.

So once traps became a bust, I switched strategies and went to POISON!

It took awhile, but they eventually disappeared.

How do I know?

No more little tracks in the snow was one clue, but the acid test was putting chicken bones in my bait station. When those went untouched, I knew success was mine.

Good job, Steve!

I used poison, too.

I'm wondering how I'm going to retrieve their roting corpses from the nooks and cranies of my attic.

I'll figure it out.

Most of them died under my shed, which is at the back of the yard, so I'm hoping the smell won't make it into the house.

It's still below 40 most of the time here in Chicago, so they remain refrigerated at the moment...

I also hate ratz!
