Default Rats!!!

Lance Harrington of Tbirds Southwest is working on a Tbird and found this.... Here is what he said...

"Rats got into a customers 1964 Thunderbird Conv. and into the wiring. We started finding more and more of these "range cubes" cattle feed the further we progressed. Had to pull fender panels and estimate that removed a bushel of these. Guess the "critters" were planning on a long winter or dry summer season. Keep rat control around your "toys" and hopefully eliminate this problem."

Here are the pix he sent me.

I keep a box trap in my garage, baited with raisins!

Each rat caught gets a .177 air-rifle pellet through the head and a place in the ‘rat garden’ (buried about a foot down)
Should be a good crop of potatoes there next season!

(With a trap you know you’ve got the varnints, poison not so much)
