    [RC] Rats! - Karen J. Zelinsky

    Speaking of .....
    I am dealing with the micro-chip size model of rat - cute little
    And, one of my techniques sounds akin to the aforementioned one - using
    barrels with feed at bottom to trap rats --
    I use a deep bucket filled with maybe a few inches of water - placed in
    my pump room (room under my kitchen which houses only my hot-water
    heater, water pump and a fuse box, and then check it every so often.  At
    the last check - ugh, ugh, -- there were FIVE mice floating in it!
    Remember they need WATER, too! - works well in a "locked-in" place.
