Thread: Scientists develop a new "rat spray"

    Scientists develop a new "rat spray"

    Found an interesting article; not sure how well its going to be received by the 'public'

    "The new aerosol spray trap could change the way shoots control rats"


    "Scientists at the University of Aston have devised a new type of rat trap which could, in the future, transform the way in which rat control is undertaken by gamekeepers.

    The new trap addresses the increasing problem of rats becoming resistant to traditional poisons. The device uses a tunnel trap fitted with a laser-activated trigger, which — when broken by a passing rat — causes a pre-determined dose of poison to be sprayed on to the creature. This lethal spray is absorbed through the skin and means a more measured amount of poison can be used rather than an operator being reliant upon poisoned baits.

    Aston University’s Andrew Ingham told the BBC that the reduction of poisoned baits in the environment was one of the key drivers behind the development: “We’re putting more poison out to kill the rats that are freely roaming in these areas. You often don’t notice that there’s a massive amount of poison hidden in a little black box at the side of the road.”

    My number one view is that you and the couple of punks that you've recruited as followers should grow up, find another hobby, and get off my ass.. As to poisoning, do whatever makes you happy and lets you look in the mirror. Every case is different and each individual knows if they are using it out of laziness or as a last resort.

    Could be... But at least all but a couple of you are man enough to let it go and stop trying to dig up something. If folks get upset with my comments on a subject, so be it. Not the intention, but I say things straight out and don't worry much about thin skin. Some can take it, some can't, and some get obsessed with it and constantly try to pick an argument. Try bein a man and just don't read my posts if you don't like what I have to say...

    It's a very good idea but I can't see it being commercially viable.
