Yes these are rats
Hello Everyone just a quick update regarding rat problem .There has been no fresh droppings in or around location where i took the photo's i have placed a couple of traps in the area but i'm thinking they might of moved on(hopefully) but we'll see.
If i do catch one or two how long should i keep laying traps down ?
The traps were sprung but nothing there??????Any ideas
What sort of traps are you using?
Hello 1runnybeak1 yes placed 1 trap on the run and 1 about 1 metre away both were baited with chocolate spread both baits were eaten.Very supprised there was nothing there they must of moved at light speed or something !!!!!!
Are they adjusted properly? Have you tried setting them and then pressing the pressure plate with a (longish) stick?
Hello dovefromabove yes tried them out and yes they worked properly , very sensitive to the touch i'm starting to think are the rats eating the dead ones.
