How To Get Rid Of Rats In Compost Pile

Question From: l. JANES - Livonia, Michigan, United States
Q: I know its been a rough winter for outdoor critters but my COMPOST PILE [just veggie scraps/no meat/dairy] and garden are FULL of deep borrowed holes [I think rats?] because the hole openings are big [3-4in. in diameter] help...HOW CAN I GET RID OF THEM BEFORE I HEAD OUT THERE TO WORK?

A: Larry, I suggest you try a Rat Zapper rat trap. My son-in-law bates his with peanut butter. There are several models to choose from so one should meet your needs. You can buy it on line - search for some options. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
