Our house is infested by rats....
April 11, 2008 4:40am CST
We live in a 2 story house with an attic, and as all homes it is usually infested by rodents. Big rats live in and around our house and we tried everything to kill these vermins to no avail. We tried using rat poison. This worked, however our chickens ate the dead rats and they died too. So we tried using traps (steel traps) that capture the rats alive. So far we have already captured 5 fat rats. However these rats tend to be very intelligent to the point that we have to move the traps around the house as they seem to learn to stay away from the trap that caught their friends. I think its just a matter of time where the traps wont work anymore and we will once again be having uncontrollable rats in and around the house. Can anyone help me solve my predicament???

yes I can solve it for you! I used to raise Ferrets. These are small animals related to weasels and mink. They are a natural enemy of rats and if you had one in yor house the rats would leave immediately. all it takes to rid a house of rats is to have a ferret in the house. Let me know how it turns out. Thanks
