Little rat bastards keep getting into my garage. Just becasue I have the garage door opened all day shouldn't be an open invitation to come in a screw around. I know the weather is getting colder and they want someplace warm to stay, but damn, go live in the damn oak tree outside!!!!!!!!!!!!

How can I get rid of them???? Hate to unload the mag of the AK into the garage. Any other choices that I"m overlooking?

thanks.

High velocity pellet rifle and a cheap red dot should make for an interesting afternoon.

AGUILA SUPER COLIBRI'S IS THE ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION....use it in a 10/22 to quietly take out the critters....cats on the other hand can/sometimes just become friends with squirrels and team up against you.

Tall bucket with popcorn inside and a piece of wood to use for a gang plank from the floor to the top of the bucket.

Works great. Using this meathod, I started the Chipmunk Relocation Program and rid my garage of the little buggers.

I like pellet guns, it attracts less attention from the cops than semi auto gunfire.

I relocated about a dozen this year with a live trap and peanut butter.

Pellet rifle and some bait. Apple smeared with peanut butter works well.

This along with birdseed sprinkled on top works like a charm. I got rid of a family of them (8) last year with this recipe.

Gosh, that's a real stumper of a problem there. Hmmm. What could you do?






Tango7 has a great story about 'critter claymores'. He had to replace a baseboard and cabinet door, but the damn mouse was toast.

Thanks for all the good help on my critter problem. Limited funds will preclude me from the 25mm howitizer, however, I do have a Sheridan pellet gun which could be brought to bear.
