Due to having chickens and breeding quail, I usually get a rat or two coming in around the sheds for the winter. I can usually sort them out using live traps, snap traps and the air rifle with the green light. I cannot use poison.
I have one this year however that is evading all the usual methods. It can see the green light, it avoids the live trap, and when I set the snappy ones it actually kicks dirt and stuff on to the trap to spring it then it takes the bait!!!!
It also killed the few quail I had planned to over-winter.
I have never seen this before and am at a loss as to how to get the bugger.
Any tips/advice gratefully received!
