RAT'S NEST

Reply
 
THIS MORNING I WENT TO ONE OF MY BOXES FOR THE FIRST TIME THIS YEAR. THERE WAS A RAT NEST IN THERE AS BIG AS 2 BASKETBALLS. I WENT BACK AT 2 THIS AFTERNOON WITH A SHORT HANDLE SCOOP SHOVEL AND A BROOM AND A GLOCK 21 CALIBER 45 ACP. WELL THE RAT WOULDNT RUN FROM ME AND I TOOK CARE OF THAT. I CLEANED AND SWEPT OUT THE BOX. QUESTION IS WHAT IF ANYTHING CAN BE PUT IN THERE TO PREVENT ANOTHER RAT FROM BUILDING IN THAT BOX OR ANOTHER BOX. I WAS THINKING MOTHBALLS . ANYONE KNOW A SURE FIRE REMEDY ?

Hate rats
Moth balls or the chemical that they are made of ( name slips my mind at the moment ) seem to be the most common answer to that question , --------- I have heard good things about the high frequency noise gizmos that plug into your house and run off all the wildlife ---------I repair heavy equipment and have seen more rat damage to wiring harnesses this past year than any of the 37 years I have been doing mechanic work ---- they be bad
