There's an animal scowling under my foundation and thrashing around like it's fighting another animal, guessing it's a raccoon? Can even feel movement through the floor.

Maybe they're fucking. If you were doing that you might not notice it as much...

This fucking monster under the house, I just heard it leave out a torn mesh air vent at the front, was ramming into my heating ducts, water pipes, side of the foundation all the way around on three sides of the house. I only hear one animal which is really freaky as I can hear when it scrapes through the torn metal mesh. Maybe it's psychotic, has me a bit spooked the scowling sounds. Tmrw I'll board up the torn vent, and hope it's not under the house and gets trapped when I do so. I'm sure I'll hear about it at night if that happens. :milk:

What would Thruth do? Buy a huge havahart trap and catch this mofo live?

Put a new metal wire covering on it, problem solved. I did hear another rat in the attic today though. Can't wait to find another place to live, my shoulder's healing a lot faster than I ever expected possible so may be sooner than later.

Checked the attic today. One of the glue traps I set was gone, the other only had some insulation stuck on it. I heard a crazy flopping around several nights ago which I assumed were death throes not a successful escape. The traditional large wooden snap trap I had had gone off but no rat and the cheese was gone.

I'm going full nuclear now and buying d-con, tomcat, some other rat poison in large quantities and filling the attic, don't care if they die in my walls, attic anymore. The war has gone on too long now.

Amazon better not take 10 days to deliver my poison.

Some of the Amazon reviews say the rat pellet poisons don't kill them but ends up only feeding them! What a fuckin' nightmare.

I had to go for the $60 Neogen Havoc XT which had the highest % of 5 star reviews, of course on back order for couple more days.

Rat's doing sprints left and right right above me now WTF.

Why not buy a cat or a rat dog instead? You seem like you could use the companionship as well.

Don't worry, rats will be extinct soon. Climate change and fracking you know.

I think it would be cheaper to turn the rats into companion pets. Give you a bit of a challenge too.

Not sure if joking but this a-frame attic is no place for a pet, I don't go up there without a breathing mask on.

They'll outlive humans for sure.

Have seen this on tv show hoarders buried alive before.

I deployed about a pound of the rat poison yesterday. I hear a rat scratching something above my living room now.

Making strange erratic noises now, either dying or building a nest.

Woke up today dreaming I broke a scotch glass with a rat clawing less than a foot away from me in the wall behind my headboard. Heard at least three different rats last night simultaneously in areas I put the poison.

How long before they die? They will die right? :sadwhy:

Have you set traps as well? You need to hit these motherfuckers with a combo deal. Eat poison here and get your damn neck broke for free.

Four years not one rat, then a small leak behind my washer in the garage caused drywall to rot and the rats find water, break through the drywall and they infiltrate.

They know how to set off snap traps without getting caught and before eating the bait. Glue traps are just an afternoon exercise for them.

Rats don't eat poison. When they encounter something new, one of them will eat it. If it's fine after a day the others will eat it too. If it dies or gets ill they won't touch it. I used to have rats as pets, and they were very cautious around new foods. They even learned how to open their own cage. Smart little fellas.

I can see caged rats testing new food, but can free-range rats organize and communicate a food tester?

Not to take away from Leland's rodent problem but I just found out that my neck is all sorts of fucked up and that's what's causing all my shoulder issues. So, yay me.
Makes sense, pain like that rarely originates from where it's felt. My therapist cracks my neck once in awhile which freaks most people out understandably.

They are probably just taking it to the taste tester

Yep, especially in the wild. It's one of their survival mechanisms.
