Rat Poll

Just curious.  I had a friend tell me that he was bragging about killing mice in his house on a chat board.  Someone from TX complained that that was cruelty and he should stop.  But she has bragged about killing cockroaches.  Is killing pests bad or just certain pests? 

Take the poll and make my day.

Oh good because when the time has to be passed debating whether it is worse to squash a cockroach or a rat, we have a problem.   :D

I did see a rat trap that works on mice, rats, stoats, and other similar rodents and vermin.  It works on CO2.  Unfortunately for those who are global warming minded, this is a net zero as the CO2 is taken out of the air and put back in.  Anyway, the rodent goes up the chute where the bait is smelling all kinds of good, when it hits a trigger, the CO2 is released which develops great pressure on an anvil that hits the rodent in the head for an instant kill.  Much more humane at about $200. 

You can look it up on The Google.

Yep, that is pretty effective for mice for sure.  I got 8 in one night in my shed. 

I have never caught a rat in it.  I think because they are too big and can get to the bait.  Also, my bucket is smaller than a 5 gallon so I think that makes a difference.  For mice this is really really really good.  My big rat snap trap is doing well on the rats.  The A12 that costs a lot of money looks pretty good on youtube.  It is definitely more expensive. 

Here is a video of it in action with 'possums.  It is a pretty cool idea but more expensive if you just have rats and mice.
