    Plenty of rats down here...some 4 legged ones too. I don't have any 4 legged ones. When they show...they the poison and a trap or two.

    Waldo, just buy a female cat and keep it. Farrel is a really bad idea. Females are better about not marking there territory. If you just keep a cat around, the rats will just stay away because of the sent. They don't even have to be good mousers. The sent of a cat will help you greatly.

    Cat's are pretty independent. If you can figure out a way to allow the cat to be home or inside for a few months, they will stay. If you can't do this because you just aren't home, then I'm afraid you will probably always have a rat problem. They bread so fast and it doesn't take long for them to just over run a place if not tended. I use to have a house on the Golf Course and I mean, there were mice coming in all the time, from the golf course. I finally just bought a couple of cats and never had the problem again. Rats just left and the Cats never went outside so it's not even a thing where they got hunted.

    I don't know waldo, that's a tough one if you are simply not around enough.

    no, the rats dont get inside the house. but in a gap between inside and outside walls. cat needs to wait outside to get it at night. except that gap is all over the house including the roof.

    I understand but the deal is that you really have to keep the cat in the house for a few months. If you do not, there is a very good chance that the cat will simply leave. They have to bond to the area in order to make it work so it doesn't matter if the rats are inside or not. It's about the cat really. As to the issues you have with the Rats in the walls, the sent of the cat will still work and they will leave.

    problem - i am rarely there so cannot have pet.
    i am there once a month.
    i have one may be two rats at the moment.
    i am going to lure the feral cats in the neighbor to visit for 2 days during my stay with cat food/catnip and fish.
    i presume they will smell the rats near my house and stick around for the meal late at night...
    i hope...

    forgot to mention - i am allergic to cats so inhouse is not an option :lmao:

    I wish you luck. I am not certain this is going to work for you waldo. Wild cats will simply eat what you put out and then be on their way. They will hunt an area that has a lot of mice because the more the better right? If there are only a few, I am not certain that they will stay.

    Hope it works for you.

    It's just a matter of time. They can burrow inside eventually. This is serious. Don't let them have the opportunity. They are resourceful.
