This makes sense to me.

If you can draw 50 or 100 rats at once, you can use a claymore, but . . .

The fish is mute, expressionless. The fish doesn't think because the fish knows everything.

They tore down an old barn about 300 yards from my house and I assume the rats picked my place to take up residence. Setting rat traps was not too productive with one trap disappearing.

They are real diggers and being next to my water garden, they had all they needed. I decided to try the water hose down their hole.
What a surprise...there must have been 20 to 30 rats when I had only seen two or three. They left for parts unknown. Big Grin

My Labadoodle is better than any cat I ever owned.
That dog chases them up my fig tree ,he barks ,I get my gun and shoot it.
Here is where it gets hairy.I get to race the dog to get it first.
I put in a gallon zip lock bag and freeze it
Put it in garbage night before garbage truck comes in morning.
I have to be fast,if he gets it first he starts eating it.

Again, this eliminates all your issues. Rubber glove and a trash bag. Throw out the dead every morning.

Kill them as efficiently as possible. I use kill traps. Place rat carcass in Publix bag and freeze until garbage day. Place ratcicles in trash and dispose. Clean, quick and smell free.

Probably not a neighborly thing to do.
I hope this in jest.

Of course, although, might show them the dead rats, a chat with the neighbor, do they have any idea that they are bringing in rats with the bird seed, and if your yard has rats, their yard has to have them, and others, which means they are bringing them into peoples homes...

The way to solve the problem is to get rid of whats causing the problem, bird seed...
