Just had rats eat my wifes main wiring harness to her brand new car. Luckily I work for the dealership, so it got "warrantied". In the mean time, yes, peanut butter and poison go great together. Missed the cheeky bastard with about 30 traps, so now I can smell him in the friggin garage walls, but at least the wires are safe yet again!

I'm fairly certain they're Wood rats (AKA Pack rats). Had one in the garage a couple years ago that stole & ate SEVEN bricks of rat poison before dying. That one emptied a tool box; wrenches, sockets, bolts. Even had a couple beer cans. Obviously, a Red-necked Pack Rat.

So, today I was checking out the RV for Hopmadness next weekend. All of the spark plug cables have been chewed again! This despite the poison I put out (it was all eaten), the red pepper on top of the engine and the rodent repellent under the RV. I'm really glad it has metal fuel lines.

Do you live in the country to get rodent populations like that, David? If so, what about getting a couple of farm cats? You feed them a bit of dry cat food and they supplement with whatever they can find, if you know what I mean. Just make sure they're fixed. I know too many people that have to occasionally thin the herd. Doesn't seem quite fair to make them survive under harsh conditions and then execute them when they become successful.
