We did it. For those of you who have never had a rodent problem, consider yourselves extremely lucky. There is nothing worse than trying to put your children to sleep at night with rats, (yes, not mice rats) running around squealing and pretty much just grossing you out. Or waking up in the middle of the night and hearing them, scratching, fighting, mating, or whatever they do right above your head. Just anticipating them all falling through the ceiling and landing on top of my bed.
We got traps and went to work, it's kinda funny that we would get so excited and check the traps almost hourly during the day, and first thing in the morning, and Scott and I before we went to bed would go check again. We got 4 and the problem is gone, this was the last one that was murdered so terribly. We got creative with our traps and set this particular one on the end of the shelve. Well he jumped up to get the treat a WHAM!!!! It did exactly what we had hoped, what a great picture right, there he is dangling in mid air with his head clamped. The murder was so proud. As you can tell we put alot of planning into exterminating our little friends, it sounds really sick and twisted. So I guess we are when it comes to killing rodents.
Please do not be afraid, they are gone. We may all rest in peace now.
