Just when you thought it was safe
Darn Rats. I have nothing against them if they would just stay out of my personal space. Outside rats, outside. Inside BAD! I have used steal wool to block up holes to get rid of them. They seem to think my steel wool is for sissies.
The Rats living here are well trained extreme rats. Nothing seems to stop them. I did put poison in the crawl space under the house. I hated doing it. The blue blocks of death have all been taken elsewhere. Gone from under the house. I guess the rats did not find them to fit into the decorating scheme.
Evidently, I am able to support an entire ecosystem as the lovely Barn Owls have moved in. I actually LOVE that the barn owls are living in my trees. Maybe that is why my lawn is looking so much better. No gophers. Hey Mr and Mrs Barn Owl...could you work on the rats now?
Robert showed up today. He is all business. He searched high and low and found multiple access points. He shows me the access points and I'm like...why didn't I see that? But obviously he has been working with stealth rats for a while. His opinion, I have a few rats. Not alot. Actually quite a small population (thank you mr and mrs owl..). But for a small bucket of $$ he will plug up all access AND guarantee no critters under, over, or in my house....dogs excluded of course.
