Hopefully this isn't a worn out topic here. I've never been to the ADC forum. I don't do ADC work but I do have quite a few rats in my goat barn. I don't freakout about a few mice but I'm not ok with the rats. I actually mounted a few 110's on a beam that I've seen them run across but no luck. I don't want to use poisons. I'm considering baited boxes similar to weasel boxes, and snares.

What are your recommendations?

It's a forum, shouldn't matter how many times something's asked. Snap traps, I prefer victor snap traps, with good bait is hard to beat.

I like old 1 1/2 ls. Set light with bait scattered around and over them. Works well for me. Just set where the cats can not get to them.

55 gal drum with a foot of water (may also add a gallon of bleach), rope from ground to top for them to climb up, rod across top with a can fixed in the center of it able to spin on rod, peanut butter with cracked corn on can. Rats crawl up the rope, jump to the can, can spins, rats fall into barrel and drown. Repeating trap, clean out every few days.
