Drat those dirty Rats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I swear if I see one more thing in my yard eaten by the gosh darn rats...So look this my new hammock the one the kids put up for my birthday remember?????? EATEN by the rats...Really they came down from the barn see we hay for the horses and so with Hay comes rats and the area is animal territory with that comes rats...Now I put up with these guys for the past 11 years but my HAMMOCK and my gorgeous Tomatoes..abd No NO NO not the corn..Does anyone have an answer for this pesky [problem..I have dogs so poison is not good....Traps the dogs will just gor for the peanut butter on it or I will make a sandwich with some of the jelly I just made....Look they have even eaten my corn ...So first I thought it was the Raccoons because there was one of the LOGS from the wood I have hardly any of..remember that story and so I thought the cute little raccoons were sitting up on the log eating my hammock...But we moved the log and the hammock kept disappearing...Little by little who eats rope ??????

So then that Hubby goes and gets a new gun a powerful pellet rifle with a new scope and laser and flashlight so he can shoot them that was three months ago the only thing he and his friends have shot is the top of my sprinklers off.....I mean for gosh sakes I got him a camouflage robe to wear out there at at night....I said to him did ya hear the dogs go running out last night ...Yep sooooooooo..... I think I will go out and try my hand at shooting why if Janie was here she could do the work for me she is a good Texan shot...... Well I have now put up large amounts of fence I took wire gate stuff wrapped it around the garden and then chicken wire to keep them out but now how to I get to my vegetables???? Plus i can just hear them at night in the neighbors yard Hey Fellows drop the plums and oranges Lani has Tomatoes... Watermelon and A HAMMOCK!!!! WOOHOOO head to Lanis'....If anyone has any ways for me to rid my Yard of these new little friends please I will gladly pay for the advise....God Bless Im going to grab the rifle...Wish me lucky and thanks for the pictures of your animals for the other blogs.....

Get a barn cat. A smart one that the dogs won't get.

gee Lani, you do have a problem, I think your best bet is to call a local pest control company. They (the rats) sure are a pain in the butt. Just be careful they can get in the house. Believe me I can tell a few horror story about rats. Good Luck in getting a solution

I'm with the barn cat. When I stayed at my family's farm, as a child, the usually had 4-5 "yard" cats and no rat problems to speak of.

In Florida, we have Palm Tree Rats. Those bad boys eat through metal screening. I will gladly swap some of ours for some of yours.
