Default Another Option?

How about introducing a large hungery snake. Depending on the rat, a small Boa or maybe a large Black/Yellow Rat snake might do the trick!

Hmmm, a large rat and a snake! If it were my garage and I brought a snake into the garage in order to get rid of a rat, my wife would most definitely be packing her bags!

If you just burn down your garage....that rat will have no place to hide.

Do you know for sure you're dealing with a rat? It looks more like the workings of a squirrel to me. I can't imagine a rat getting through all your schemes, but a squirrel.....??

How about getting rid of the birdseed first? No food -> no rat.

If you get rid of the rat, but keep the seed, dollars to donuts you just get another one.

And please...no poison...poisoned rats get eaten by birds of prey, which then die from the poison.

You have the wrong snap trap. You need one that has the large yellow paddle, then you put the treat in the little dish part only and set it so it is on the verge of going off. That should get him. Step 2 is to close the holes to keep them from getting in again.

"I have to laugh because Ive often asked myself my foe, my enemy, is an animal. In order to conquer him I have to think like an animal and whenever possible to look like one. Ive got to get inside this dudes pelt and crawl around for a few days. Who is the gophers ally? His friend? The harmless squirrel and the friendly rabbit. Im going to use you guys to do my dirty work for me."


How about some C4 sculpted into a harmless squirrel or friendly rabbit?
