My boyfriend just informed me we have a rat in the shed. He did not see it. However, he seen huge rat droppings. Something we have never had in the shed before.
Now I need to figure a way to easily kill the rats. I thought of using De-con or other rat poison. By placing it in the shed. The bad thing about that, yes it will kill the rat. However, the rat will go off and die somewhere. I do not want it to die in the shed. As it would be hard to find and smell since it is summer time.
I am not sure where the rat came from. All I know is, I want it gone. Rats can carry diseases.
Since, Moose my Chug chases everything else. I wonder if I can get him to help catch this rat. I hope it is only rat and not a family.
Just thinking about a rat in the shed gives me the creeps. I don’t mind pet rats. However, wild rats are totally different. I just want it gone. As soon as possible.
Do you have ideas how to get rid of a rat?
(Note : I do not store food in the shed. Sometimes trash gets stored in shed till trash day.)
