Ok, so I'm sitting in my bedroom on the laptop and I hear this chewing sound in the kitchen. So I creep down the hall and kinda peek over in the floor of the pantry, and low and behold there is a rat eating a hole in my dog's biscuit bag. The funny thing is... the rat was trying to get into a bag that was no more than 5in away from the little "sonic rodent repeller" thing I got at Lowes by Victor. I saw the name "Victor" on it so I figured it would be at least half way decent... but it did absolutely nothing to this rat... although it could have been deaf I suppose... but then again I just don't know. So I've officially declared myself the "bearjew" and the rats are my Nazis.:drillsergeant: I tried the "humane" approach but I'm done with that now. Anyone else having an unusual amount of rodent problems this winter??
