Rats

Post by Sharon » Sat Jan 28, 2023 3:21 pm

Killing rats all week.
Our neighbour seldom puts out his garbage , and his place looks like a junk yard inside and out. As a result, he has many rats and we now have many rats at our bird feeder area. Managed to trap 3 so far and one or two more to go. Don't want any Spring babies.
Saw a video about trapping rats ; one camera shot showed the rat getting a stick and setting off the trap with the stick and then enjoying dinner. They aren't stupid.
Now where is that Jack Russell I used to have ?

I realize owning a .22 in Trudeau's Canada brands you as an enemy of the state, but an air rifle is particularly suited for killing rats. Sit outside reading a book, and look up every once in a while to see if they have returned. And then...

Being originally from Saskatchewan, I am thankful for Alberta’s rat patrol

Any air rifle exceeding 500 fps is regarded the same as a 22 in this country
